Thank you, soulan, for inspiring me with your wonderful story, A Way with Words.

Last summer, when I knew about this concert, I just couldn't pass it by.

It was worth it. Patti just gets better and better as she gets older.

This concert, with her Patti Smith Acoustic Band, was part of the tour entitled "We Shall Live Again" (a lyric from her Ghost Dance song)


It took me so long to post this, but here are pics & videos...

From People Have the Power...









She also paid homage to Pier Paolo Pasolini, whom in the past she'd mentioned as an influence and to whom she'd dedicated her poem italy (the round)..
On her official website she also reminisces about visiting the Pasolini memorial near Ostia,.


A memorable evening, made even more special by Patti chatting in Italian with the audience, and by the atmospheric setting in Ostia's archaeological area.

Thank you :)
Well, these videos are so low resolution 'cause I was quite far away from the stage and my camera is not a very good one, but I just wanted to capture Patti's energy on stage. She's just amazing.
Sorry I haven't had time to catch with your story lately, but it's on my to-read list and I hope to have more time later this month to start reading it.

I love Patti Smith and I'm glad you had a great time.
Can't believe she chatted in Italian and paid homage to Pasolini! I love her even more.
A big hug

Thank you, Roby :)
Well, she seems to have become quite familiar over the years with some Italian expressions and way of life (she even made a joke, half in Italian, half in English, about her way of ordering American coffee in Italy: basically, "espresso, please, con acqua calda a parte"!)
Last year, she and her acoustic band had quite a few concerts in various parts of Italy. On her official website there's an updated list of upcoming concerts in various countries.

Ciao
