If singer John Prine decides to never play the Paramount again, I wouldn’t blame him. His Sept. 14 appearance was marred by loudmouthed patrons who seemed to feel they were part of the concert. Prine audiences are typically exuberant, but at least don’t interrupt or interfere with Prine’s wonderful story songs.
I’ve seen him perform six times in four states. This Cedar Rapids appearance was the most disruptive and disrespectful I’ve ever experienced. To the two dozen or so jerks who ruined it for the hundreds of us who actually came to enjoy the concert, why don’t you suck down your tallboys at home next time and whoop and holler at your flat-screen.
