She uses an in-the-ear monitor. The wire leads to a receiver on her back. Several times during the show, she reached back and adjusted the volume.

Thanks Russell. (My gratitude is exceeded only by my jealousy!) :wink:

Of course, it is you I have to thank again for letting us know about the event in the first place.

Thanks for the thorough account and all the great photos, Russell! I always love reading about first encounters with Patty in concert.

And thanks especially for this:

Russell wrote:As is my custom at such places, I parked to the side of the stage next to the speakers. I'm on the very tall side and know that I don't have to worry about blocking the view of others when I'm on the side.

As a 5'7" lover of live music, that's about the most endearing thing I've ever read!
