It was a completely scary start for Lauren Savoy, when all the way through the first phrase she was so out of it as it was possible to be.
The best Lauren Savoy managed during the entire concert was a fine version of "You Should Have Told Me", one of the few songs she sang really well.
It seemd the better part of the audience hadn't quite gotten "Savoy" under their skin yet, because the band didn't get an emotional response from the audience before the 7th song on the setlist was played, which was the Lackluster Me single,"Rain.

 Savoia - The Royal House of Savoy
The Savoys were custodians of a mystical sword and an equally mystical robe, the "Shroud of Turin." Descended in the direct male line from a tenth-century vassal of the Holy Roman Emperor, the Savoys ruled the Alpine state of Aosta, as well as Savoy, where they established themselves at Chambery.
By the eighteenth century, the Savoys were kings of Sicily and then Sardinia, and it was under their aegis that the Italian states were united by 1871.
Today, the House of Savoy remains one of the oldest royal dynasties, but also one of Europe's smallest, with only four dynasts ("men who would be king").
