Looking Ahead: The One and Only Lisa Fischer Comes to Charlotte This Week!
It’s hard to contain my excitement about this one. Whether you were blown away by her in the documentary, 20 Feet From Stardom, or you’ve known of her for decades, there’s really no denying the level of talent this woman exudes. Lisa Fischer is coming to Charlotte, people! And we only have to wait two more days! The show comes to McGlohon Theater for one night only Wednesday, Sept. 16, at 7:30 p.m.
Fischer is a singer who really gets around. Her life is an endless round of planes, trains and automobiles; rehearsals; and fittings. On tour with the Rolling Stones, Sting, Chris Botti or Nine Inch Nails, her name may not be on the marquee, but she doesn’t care. She’s busy loving every minute of it. It’s easy to see why she works all the time: her astonishing range, her spot-on intonation, her mastery of the stage, the way her tone wraps itself around your heart and won’t let go, the infectious quality of her time feel — these things keep her on top of the list. But it’s the sweetness of her smile, her genuine pleasure in watching her band mates do their stuff and her glamorous-girl-next-door quality that make fans all over the world think she’s their own secret discovery (despite the fact that the YouTube version of her duet with Mick Jagger on “Gimme Shelter” has close to two million hits).
You don’t want to miss this show in the beautiful McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square! Surely you already have your tickets; but if not, there are a few left! CLICK HERE for availability. We’ll see you Wednesday!
