Review: Selena Gomez offers G-rated glam at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater




The Selena Gomez gig on Saturday at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater was THE place for prepubescent females to be this weekend, a wickedly tough ticket to score, forcing parents to power-play all over Tampa Bay in hopes of landing a seat. As a result, the mood among the 2,180 fans inside the intimate venue was frantic and giddy.

Sean Daly was there too, and he writes:

The whole thing looked like Busby Berkeley directing an Abercrombie & Fitch ad. But hey, pretty blinking distractions and big dancey beats were the main, and only, point. No one expected her to bust out Blowin' in the Wind; she has three albums, each one as slick and soulless as the next. Then again, she did sing a medley of Britney Spears songs, and not even Britney Spears sings Britney Spears songs. Plus she rapped the rhymes from Nicki Minaj's Super Bass, and you know what? She was good!
