Though she cut short her set at the Riviera Theatre on Tuesday, and seemed to be seriously struggling to overcome what at times appeared to be sheer panic, Sinead O'Connor had some kind words for our town in her just-published tour diary entry. O'Connor's entry reads, in part:
"I was frightened last night.. Really sick with fear to be honest.. But.. I know what to do about it.. So it’s grand.. Plus I really enjoyed the gig actually even though I was freaked out.. The audiences in Buffalo are very gentle people. It’s a gentle town. So it felt nice and safe to try to just stand and be gentle."
