@ The Ritz Raleigh, NC
May 7, 2019
Garbage was with us in North Carolina at the Ritz Raleigh Tuesday.
They were in Raleigh at the Red Hat Amphitheater last year opening for Blondie. Unfortunately I got my dates missed up and missed that show. Had tickets and a photo pass for that one too!
Garbage has played the Ritz once before in October of 1998.
The show, music wise, was very good with Shirley Manson’s vocals still hitting her high notes. The light show was nothing spectacular considering it is the Ritz.
It would have been nice if the band sang backup, but they didn’t. Songs with dual or backup vocals like Only Happy When it Rains suffered for the lack there of.
The band is still tight and still worth $40 for the ticket.
