Carole King has long, long been a favorite of mine. I have a vinyl album of hers. Hadn't seen nor heard of her for years when she showed up at my venue. Her management made me sign a predatory agreement so they can demand my images for any use without credit or payment. I don't mind ... she has brought a lot of good to the world and continues to do so. If they want my pictures I will ask for credit/payment but if they become jackasses I will likely comply. The world has enough asshats already.
I was allowed first three songs. Carole never moved from the piano stool for the first three songs. There was very little light on the rest of the stage except for her position ... again the casino staff did a magnificent job. The rest of the stage contained two couches and floor lamps. The piano position was such that about half the audience up front could see nothing but her head while she was at the piano. I wanted a shot across the piano top with her there but there was no position to get that ... so, I have a very limited selection of images.
