David Gray at Iroquois Amphitheater

David Gray visited the Iroquois Amphitheater, Louisville, KY, on  a 103% Friday evening. The record breaking heat didn’t seem to slow down Gray or his audience as he ran through his arsenal of popular songs while wearing his trademark suit. Performing to his second consecutive sold out audience Gray may have set another record by filling the amphitheater.

The high temperatures didn’t seem to bother his voice or the audience as they sang together on “Sail Away and many other of their favorites. Although still over 90 degrees after sundown no one seemed to care as they watched Gray move between piano and guitar during the show.

Yuna  open the show with an entertaining set that highlighted her beautiful voice and showcased her talent on guitar and the ukelele.

 

Yuna started out as a solo MySpace artist in 2006, singing in both English and Malay.Yuna’s meteoric rise in the Malaysian indie music scene is largely due to the strong following she gained via Myspace. Having played at many gigs since the release of her Demo, EP and then two local albums, she is now focusing on promoting and performing music on her debut US Album.Yuna also will be a part of Lollaplooza 2012 line up.

In 2008,she released her self titled EP which become a massive hit in Malaysia most notably the single ‘Deeper Conversation’
Yuna was nominated as one of MTV Iggy’s Best New Bands in the World. She performed at the historic MTV Studios in Times Square New York singing “Decorate”, “Come As You Are” and her new single “Live Your Life”, which is produced by Pharrell Williams of N.E.R.D.
