Leon Bridges Reviews
Anonymous from Austin, Texas
Leon Bridges is an incredible talent. His songwriting is superb and his music has a sound all his own. The band was excellent and really added a richness to his musicto his music. Loved the stage, lights, and dance moves. I loved the growth in his music. The opening act was a really innovative band Masego that I’d go to see again. Had a wonderful time and his fans loved him!

GREAT ARTISTS, DESTRUCTIVE SOUND DESIGN
I love Leon Bridge's work, and it was great seeing him live, along with the incredible musicians on stage. I have nothing but praise and appreciation. They put on a great show. However...why the sound aesthetic was of an arena rock band, with booming, reverb- heavy bass drum and bass, is absolutely beyond me. It destroyed any clarity of sound whatsoever, resulting in a mash of sound that overwhelmed Leon's vocals and his backup singers (who are incredible). Vocals were unintelligible. Why such bass-heavy design for a subtle, tasteful performer? We left disappointed.

LOUD BAND MUFFLED SINGER
Third time seeing Leon Bridges in Philly...can see how much he has matured and become less shy on stage...think i like the first album's tour better where the music was an accompaniment to his singing...this time it was more like he was assisting the band...the acoustics were not great although the house was packed for a second night and folks seemed to enjoy themselves....Leon is gifted so i was happy to see him....the venue charged an additional $40 to stand where we stood for free the last time we saw him...that was corny...

I love Leon Bridges, his two albums have been on repeat for me for some time now! However, at the show here in Toronto I just felt like he sounded tired, hoarse and wasn't really trying. When he got to a high note or part where he belts out the chorus, he kind of pulled back or didn't sing at all. He was leaning heavily on the backup singers to fill in and in fact the sounds was mixed in such a way that the backup singers were at the same level as his voice. The performance was not worth the money I paid. It was really disappointing. On a positive note, I did really enjoy the opening act! And the venue is beautiful, the sunset was amazing over the water and CN tower!

TIME WELL SPENT
Very good show. The opening act, to me, lacked consistency in the sound they produced. It did, however, only make the headliner that much more enjoyable. The crowd was extremely diverse, covering just about every demographic. Lots and lots of women!!!! Leon Bridges was energetic, rhythmic, and very adept in the delivery of his songs. He definitely connected with his audience and entertained them well. The young performer is a throwback to a time where things were less hurried,. Great show!!!!

I gave 3 stars to be kind, and because it was not all that bad. But the music for sure fell flat. It seemed like it was all glitz, and about the glam and not about the music. I was very fisappointmed. Tickets should have cost $40 max for what they put out. It almost felt like it was their first time playing together.

LEON BRIDGES AT THE FILLMORE.
I was really surprised not to buy fulliy into what was my first time seeing Mr. Bridges live. I really expected to walk way with my love for his music completely stoked. But that was not exactly my take away. First the sound was off right from the beginning. It left his vocals at times, muffled. He is young and I’m sure he will grow as artist. But, to me, the band sounded like it was a first night effort, not one that is nearing the end of a tour. The music is too good not to sound perfect.
