There are some shows where the performer leaves the audience completely hypnotized and this was one of those shows. The performer in question was Los Angeles singer-songwriter Beth Hart. In town supporting her War In My Mind album, the ninth of her solo career, Hart was in Sheffield on the third to last date of a UK run that has seen her battle illness and huge storms battering the country.
A packed out Sheffield City Hall sat mesmerized as the Los Angeles songwriter and her band poured their hearts and souls into tracks from the aforementioned War In My Mind album as well as a selection of tracks from her back catalogue along with a few covers. Emotional, passionate, heartfelt, the songwriter put on a sublime performance. There wasn't one person in this beautiful theatre that couldn't feel Hart pour every ounce of her heart and soul into her music.
Performing a nineteen song set, Hart had the undivided attention of this entire audience for the duration and with tracks like "Leave The Light On" getting the ceiling raising reaction they deserved, Hart showed that even battling illness and typical British weather, there is nothing that can stop her delivering truly unforgettable nights like this one.
