Audience participation, the clever song lyrics, the deliberate way Sam shared his gaffes and set changes with the audience. He seemed very confident and in command of his performance.
What I didn't like
I wanted to stand up and applaud for Sam at the end, but the was…unusual.
My overall impression
From previous reviews and being familiar with Sam’s work, I expected it to be weird, but even I was surprised by some of the antics he had built into this show. Sam presents How to Be a Rock Star as a retrospective of his evolution as an artist, sharing the mundane details behind the composition of seemingly profound songs.
