On Friday October 25.  Lisa Marie Presley came to Chicago to play a little known venue for music called The City Winery Chicago.  This is one of two locations one in Chicago and the other in New York City. 
City Winery was the brainchild of Michael Dorf, founder of the iconic Knitting Factory, one of New York’s longest running music venues, wanted to create a space in Manhattan where he could combine his shared passions for wine and music.

On Lisa Marie performance, she played to a sold out crowd.  Her performance was wonderful.  And a lot different from when I saw her before back some 10 years ago.  During that time, she was under control of her label.  And you could see that she was very nervous during the two performance I saw her at (The House of Blues in Chicago and PBS Soundstage).  I remember back then during her PBS Soundstage performance she nervous because the head of the label had flew in to watch her performance

Now forward to 2013.  You could tell that she was totally in control of how the show went.  In fact during the show she told the audience that she loses money every time she goes on tour.  Which shows that she was performing not for money but for the love of the music and getting it out to the people?

Here is the list of songs that she played.
