Robyn Body Talk Concert: Electric Factory Philadelphia February 3rd 2011
Robyn was backed by two sets of drummers and two sets of keyboard wizards. I'm not a fan of the sound at the Electric Factory it's always very bass heavy, but last night it sounded the best I've ever heard. On songs like her mega hit “Dancing On My Own” you could hear every intricate little sound that makes the song so fabulous. Unfortunately Robyn seemed to be having technical difficulties, she was motioning at her sound tech during a few songs and was holding her ear piece while singing “Hang With Me”, if there was a problem the crowd and I certainly didn't hear it. My only complaint would be that sometimes the music would overpower her beautiful voice which was showcased on the last song, an acoustic style version of her top ten pop hit from the mid 90’s “Show Me Love” with a surprise intro to Abba's "Dancing Queen". Dancing Queen indeed!!!!
Note: at $25 a ticket ($35 with online booking fees) it was a steal.
