I went to Bette (Night 2) last night. As an FYI, she deleted “Be My Baby” from the setlist, perhaps due to the Herald review (calling for her to “trim” some of the back-to-back cover songs from “It’s The Girls.” She added an extra Soph joke that did not go over as well as the others, so she stated, “They can’t all be winners.”
An additional change: a velvet rope was installed in front of the 1st row to prevent audience members from approaching the stage. The one time she called one up to help her to the ledge (for “From A Distance,” the female fan would not sit down. Bette had to kindly say, “You need to go back to your seat. Remember, this song is called ‘From A Distance.'” (Very clever!)
Several times, she referred to the location as “Hollywood, F – L – A.” Cute.
