    His words are like the sea after a storm

    by notsomuchtobeloved on 3/5/19Ludlow Garage Cincinnati - Cincinnati

    Jonathan is an open, guileless wonder. So refreshing to be at a show and feel an artist connect with you as an individual, and to have not a single cell phone out for the whole time! (His wishes, which everyone honored.) He didn't sing the songs the way they were recorded, but rather the way he feels them now. For example, my favorite line of "Summer Feeling" is "Do you long for her. . . or for the way you were?" and even though he didn't sing that line, I felt it there.

    Jonathan Richman = AMAZING!

    by M Cookie on 3/3/19Ludlow Garage Cincinnati - Cincinnati

    I had never heard of the Ludlow Garage before this show. It is an oddly shaped venue with high-backed seats like in an airplane, but funky and cool - especially the seats we got (the ones that only have 2 seats together). Jonathan was as quirky and awesome as I remembered (saw him 30 years ago) - and this was the PERFECT venue for him to play. It was a truly magical evening of music.

    Please go see him...

    by Evan on 3/3/19Ludlow Garage Cincinnati - Cincinnati

    Every performance I see continues to be the best performance I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s not just a show, it’s a beautiful experience...I don’t really know what to say. You should just go and see for yourself.

    One of of the most charming musicians in existence

    by Riverrr on 8/5/18Teragram Ballroom - Los Angeles

    Amazing night ! Jonathan Richman is such a clever and delightful musician and I’ll definitely be seeing him until he decides to stop touring . So open and kind , he always engages the audience as if they were old friends .

    was not prepared to play music.

    by SirBuff on 8/3/18teragram ballroom - los angeles

    In my entire life I don't think I've been to a ticketed show where an "artist" was so ill prepared to preform. He didn't sing a single song and instead "winged it" creating songs on the fly about "the sun in the sky that we ignore everyday". If it was a jam session around a fire with friends, I might be okay with it. But JR is awkward, tone def and wholly and completely unprepared to put on a show. I thought maybe that it might be comedy, but it wasn't.

    Legacy of love

    by mollou on 3/14/18Somerville Theatre - Somerville

    What pleasure to hear Jonathan's guitar and voice sing in so many languages his surprising and welcome words of humor and humility and hope. Sharing this with our thirty-something kids made up more than a little for the world we are handing them.

    Jonathan Richman @ the Somerville Theater

    by Villen21 on 3/5/18Somerville Theatre - Somerville

    Great in every way. The lyrics. In a league with the great American lyricists. Warm, funny. Great transitions between numbers. A joy.

    Talented, Funny, Lovable

    by therealnadine on 11/11/15Bowery Ballroom - New York

    Jonathan Richman is so clever and original. Every song was clever and fun. His singing and guitar-playing were very skilled crafts and his dancing along was adorable. His only back-up was the drummer, who provided an excellent rhythmic support.
