Regina Spektor kicked off her tour down under tonight with an all ages show at The Tivoli in Brisbane. Whilst there were some things that were not right (it took 1.5hrs after the doors opened for the support act Only Son to come on – the crowd was getting hot, angry and tired), overall Regina delighted the crowd with rip-roaring vocals and funny tales involving koalas, kangaroos and concerns about her electric blue underwear.
Met some really nice people who I expect to see at some more gigs round the place and also
metsmelt some smelly people. There was no kooky dancing from Regina though 🙁 as she done some sort of damage to her leg/hip. She does however have a very cool cane. Only Son was pretty cool and his story telling at the end of his set was a really nice set and something I would like to see more of.
