Towards the end of a Patti LaBelle concert, you might see the legendary singer use a tissue to dab her face, especially around the eyes. The icon is singing and dancing with such gusto that her makeup is running (the stage lights don’t help either). To keep the makeup out of her eyes, and thus continue the performance, the singer needs to dab. It’s amazing that after more than 50 years in the industry LaBelle is still working hard enough to make her makeup run.
While her makeup wants to run, you’ll want to remain dancing and cheering. If you have Patti LaBelle tickets you should expect the “Godmother of Soul” to sound awesome, look terrific, and really connect with you and the rest of the audience. On stage, LaBelle is classy and sincere. She’s a Diva with a capital “D.” So, when a Patti LaBelle tour comes to your area make sure you run to get tickets.
