Regina Spektor Shines Bright at Metropolis (Photo essay)

by

Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Regina Spektor debuted her two-month North American tour at Metropolis as part of Montréal en Lumière, the city’s annual Winter Festival. In 2016, she released her 7th album, Remember Us To Life, and its tracks were featured almost in their entirety during her performance. Song from her deep discography, such as “Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)” from 2002’s Songs or “Apres Moi” from 2006’s Begin to Hope, were also featured. A few songs into her concert, she remarked how she could not believe this is her job, which you can feel, as during her adroit performance her gleeful wonder percolates through. In tribute to Montreal’s consummate poet, she performed a stirring rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel No. 2”, the crowd applauding in enjoyment and appreciation.

Her four-song encore closed with a personal favourite, “Samson”. When nearing the end, she had a small tumble off track causing her to pause. The crowd encouraged an a cappella version and intuitively commenced singing the lyrics in unison with her,  bringing the night to a very beautiful and harmonious end.

Remaining tour dates through the US extend into early April. Go get smitten with her songs and genuine smile.
