NORAH JONES

Last night was the quickly-come-around-since-I-booked-months-ago Norah Jones Concert. It was on at The Plenary.
"Where?' I can hear you ask, Well everyone I asked had never been either! 
It is part of the Melbourne Convention Centre and is a great venue and easy to access.
Comfy seats with leg room and a gently tier 
The stage not too far away 
The on-line map was not very helpful, but after long perusal I decided to try the car park entry off Normanby Road and drove in to an outdoor car park, with people wandering around looking lost as well. But it was $8 so I paid before since I had about 15minutes.
I followed the crowd to the lobby and then around further to my door 6. And there was the other entrance to where the car was 50mt away!
I made a quick exit after the show concert ended and I was on Normanby Road in 7 minutes!!
The show started at 8pm sharp with support act Cory Chisel and his keyboard player and singing partner Adriel Harris. They were from Nashville and had that sound, with great voices and guitar and key board sounds. Really enjoyed them.
Cory Chisel
This is all I saw of him as he had his hat on 
Then Norah, scheduled at 9pm started at 9.03 and was great. I had a DVD of her a few years ago and she was a quiet unassuming singer who thanked you, introduced the next song and sang or played, and that's what she was like last night, playing solidly for 2 hours 

She played stuff from her new album Little Broken Hearts as well as some of her old popular numbers finishing with Come away with me
A great concert and home by 1130.

All things combined for a great night out by the sound of things.
