Once In a Lifetime Glen Hansard Concert

If you’re a fan of the movie, song, or musical Once, you would have loved the Glen Hansard concert on Monday night.  It’s part of the Downtown Sounds series at Millennium Park.  Lisa Hannigan and a few of Hansard’s fellow members from The Frames joined him onstage for a three-hour set.  Personally, I think three hours is too long for any show, but I’m sure that the approximately 15,000 fans appreciated it.  In fact because there was such a high number of audience anticipated (and met), Hansard’s manager requested an extra hour of performance.  It was the biggest crowd for Downtown Sounds since the series kicked off a few weeks ago.  Though it was a long concert, Hansard kept the crowd and myself engaged the entire time. We definitely would have gotten our money’s worth had it not been FREE to the public already!  I must give special praise to the brass section for it’s bold, solid sound.   And of course I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how proud I am of my fellow Morehead State University Alumni Steve Kazee for winning the 2012 Tony for Best Actor in a Musical for his role in Once
