Feist (and Mountain Man) @ Radio City Music Hall
Feist

"I've been loving Feist more than ever. Yesterday at Radio City Hall, she caused quite a scene with the security by inviting the crowd to come sit in the orchestra and empty front rows. Then she proceeded to have a dance party on stage with some people she pulled from the crowd. What a mischief! It was pretty funny- how she did all of this with such a singsong voice. I could probably listen to her voice all day :) I'm in looooove." [Kit]
Feist brought her tour with Timber Timbre, which also hit Stubb's in Austin, to Radio City Music Hall for one big, fancy NYC show on Saturday night (5/5). Like at BAM, and the rest of the current tour (which included Coachella), she was backed by the Mountain Man women. As you can see in the blurb above, some audience members also made it on stage.

The setlist unfortunately did not contain any Mastodon, though there was some Nina Simone. Check it out in full, with more pictures from the show, below...

How is it sold out but the front rows are empty?

^^ Those ticket holders were eating eggs benedict by the merch table. Great brunch scene!

One of those jerks got hollandaise on the $35 t-shirt I purchased. Uggggh....brunchcore!

Shocked that Radio City charges $11.00 for a mimosa! It's criminal!

All kidding aside, they folks at Radio City happily exchanged my rye toast for a toasted poppy bagel. Thanks again!

I used to be really into brunchcore but then I got tired of the politics. Now I eat breakfast and lunch. They call me a sellout but screw their hypocrisy.

Timber....Timbre. Hey they are almost the same word, but the last two letters are reversed. Are there other words like that in the english language?

If anyone doubts that Bowery Presents scalps their own tickets, the fact that I walked up to a completely empty row near the front (minus 2 people) with a few others and stayed there for the entire show pretty much confirms it.

These Bon Iver on-sales at Radio City should be fun too...

Missed 20 minutes of the performance while complaining about the lack of organic celery at the bloody mary bar.

StubHub was littered with tickets for half-face and below.

she made several comments about the lack of people in the front row and encouraged the balconies to come down. ushers weren't having it until she finally went into the crowd and pulled people up to the stage. there were also gaps of empty seats in the back of the floor on the sides.

First two center rows of the pit orchestra were completely empty. Those seats wereon StubHub for like $45 and people still didn't buy them.

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 1:52 PM

a couple weeks ago, there were more than 1000 tickets (for this 6000? seat venue) on stubhub, and many in the balconies were going unsold even at 8 dollars each. Seems like they overshot by booking such a large space. Not sure why though. You'd think there were that many Feist fans in NYC - all joking aside.

It's because Bowery holds those seats back and, sure enough, couldn't sell them on the secondary market.

LP wait to you see the prices on the Metric tickets!

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 2:08 PM

I am surprised tickets didn't go for 1,2,3,4 dollars?

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 2:09 PM

Bon Iver at Radio City will probably end up with lots of tickets being sold for less on day of show, too, especially since there will be two nights.

Oh she played that james blake song...

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 2:09 PM

I love the secondary market. 50% of the time, I can get tickets for less than face. Most of the time, I get better seats at the last minute, than I would have if I bought them during a pre-sale.

Feist joked about the Rockettes not coming to claim their seats in the front rows, but you could tell she was really distraught that they were empty. When she invited people to fill the front rows, it seemed like only the people who were already in the pit could move up, whereas the people in the regular orchestra were being hassled by the ushers. Only during My Moon My Man (when Feist went into the audience and led people toward the stage) did it seem like more people managed to sneak into the pit area.

yeah stubhub will be the place to be this summer for my:Roger Waters, Madonna, Wilco , Metric,Beach Boys tickets and more. I count on not spending more than $5 a ticket...

With all jokes and sarcasm aside, Feist truly puts on a solid show for her fans. I saw her once (I like her, but def not a fan) a few years back and thought it was a really good concert.

Wow, I'm kinda surprised by the reports on here. I thought for sure all of the Park Slopers were going to descend on Radio City for this show...maybe they couldn't find a sitter?

show was really great
lame comment but it was

Please continue to hold...

Kit's blog is so good!

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 5:33 PM

Shoulda been at BAM. Parents don't want to travel so far and pay the sitter extra. Also as a much smaller venue Feist would come closer to selling out.

I would've stuck around for the show, but eggs benedict makes me horribly flatulent.

great show, and it was crazy how good the sound was
