[REVIEW+LIVE PIX] Detroit, Michigan - 21 September
Review (excerpt from
By Gary Graff
The show’s openers won their own favor on Sunday as well. Gloriana used its short time on stage to preview its forthcoming third album with the songs “Best Night Ever” and “Trouble” before closing the Beatles’ “Come Together.” Sheryl Crow, meanwhile, continued her move into the country market with a headline-worthy set that included hot jams during “Best of Times” and “Can’t Cry Anymore” as well as a “Strong Enough” that she dedicated to Rascal Flatts and a rendition of “Redemption Day” that featured a virtual duet with Johnny Cash, who also recorded the song. And the closing triplet -- a bit of “Picture” that led into “If It Makes You Happy,” a buoyant “Soak Up the Sun” and a tightly grooving “Everyday is a Winding Road” -- was received as enthusiastically as anything Rascal Flatts played during its set.
