A quick note concerning the Twilight Singers’ Newport show. After the main set, and a rather lackluster (to nonexistent) call for an encore, the crew began disassembling the gear. After 10-15 minutes, those left in the crowd brought the noise level back up, calling the band to return from their bus for an impromptu, piano-only encore (the only instrument left on stage).
After Chicago’s night one and Newport, it’s a given that encores have to be requested and earned. Now you know.
