Aaron Neville at City Winery Chicago (March 4, 2019)

Aaron Neville’s set consists of mostly covers including “Stand By Me”, “Killing Me Softly”,  “Just the Way You Are”, and “Georgia”. For just about every song, he cuts it off short. Perhaps this is to get more songs in? Also, within the songs, he cuts each note short. It’s especially evident during “Tell It Like It Is” when the audience is still singing a note and he has stopped. During a few moments, you can hear his iconic voice, but these are few and far between.

On this tour he is accompanied by Michael Goods on piano. He is a talented musician, but he shows no emotion at all while playing. Even during his great solos, his head is down with no expression on his face.

Suffice it to say, this show was a bit disappointing.


Cost of a ticket: $75 – $95
