Reviews: Buddy Guy, The Zombies, My Morning Jacket, Don Henley, Paul McCartney, KISS

Reviewers give you their perspectives of Buddy Guy in Florida, The Zombies in Pennsylvania, My Morning Jacket in Las Vegas, Don Henley in California, Paul McCartney in Ohio and KISS in Australia.

Buddy Guy @ Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., Oct. 15 – “I have never seen a musician connect with an audience as closely as Guy does. Typically, you might see an artist make brief references to the city they’re in, shouting a hollow ‘I love You!’ But Guy treats his fans, old and new, like family, with a deep, authentic love and respect.” – Michelle De Carion / Broward New Times – Palm Beach

@ Carnegie Library Music Hall Of Homestead in Munhall, Pa., Oct. 14 – “It was enough to bring tears to the eyes of a Zombies fan hearing the minor-key delicacy of ‘A Rose for Emily,’ the Pet Sounds-level harmonies of ‘Maybe After He’s Gone,’ the sun-bleached trippiness of ‘Beechwood Park’ and the divine melodic shifts in ‘Brief Candles’ and ‘Hung Up on a Dream.’” – Scott Mervis / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

My Morning Jacket @ Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas Oct. 10 – “My Morning Jacket was still performing just before midnight on October 10, but at that point, it had already performed the best rock show Vegas had seen in 2015.” – Mike Prevatt /  Las Vegas Weekly

Don Henley @ The Forum in Inglewood (Los Angeles) Oct. 9 – “Three songs into Don Henley’s concert Friday at the Forum in Inglewood, on his solo tour supporting his first album away from the Eagles in 15 years, the Texas singer-songwriter wryly advised the near-sellout crowd: ‘This show is going to be all over the map. I don’t like to be a monochromatic musician.’” – Randy Lewis / Los Angeles Times / Pop & Hiss

Paul McCartney @ Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio Oct. 13 – “Though there were brief moments of hoarseness in McCartney’s voice throughout the extensive three-hour set, he showcased extraordinary talent during songs such as ‘Baby I’m Amazed,’ switching his singing style from a deep baritone growl to a falsetto croon on command.” – Jack Lynch / U Weekly

KISS @ The Brisbane Entertainment Center in Boondall, Australia, Oct. 13 – “If Kiss can continue delivering shows like they did in Brisbane on Tuesday night, one can only hope their (actual) farewell tour is still many years away.” – Cameron Atfield / Sydney Morning Herald
