PHOTOS AND REVIEW COURTESY OF: Emily May
Alabama Soul/Americana/R&B artist Anderson East made a stop recently in Louisville. KY on his Encore World Tour. The venue was packed this evening with plenty of fans, many of whom have followed him throughout his 10 year career. East exudes a soulful stage presence, with the passion he feels for his music present on his face as he sings. As he came out onto the stage with his band, he thanked the crowd for being there and said how great it was to be back in Louisville. He sang hits such as “Satisfy Me”, “Surrender” and “All On My Mind” and had the crowd singing along and dancing to the more upbeat songs, while standing with rapt attention to the slower ballads. Dancing around the stage and interacting with the audience, he elicited a great crowd response throughout his set! Towards the end of his set, he brought out the opening artist, Lucie Silvas, for a really fun and amazing cover of Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” that really got the crowd dancing and cheering! East really loves and appreciates his fans and gave them a really wonderful evening of music.
