Singer-songwriter, whose work was last seen here in the touring Broadway musical ‘Waitress,’ is on a concert swing once again


Sara Bareilles has a soft spot for San Diego: The “Brave” singer-songwriter (and composer-lyricist behind Broadway’s “Waitress”) recalled in a recent Union-Tribune interview that one show here a decade ago was “the only time in my life I’ve ever had an entire audience fist-pump to one of my songs!”

She added: “I have always been so enamored with the audiences in San Diego — they are passionate about music and they clearly have such a love for the arts.”

Bareilles gets a chance to feel the love again when she performs at San Diego State University tonight in support of her sixth and latest studio album, “Amidst the Chaos,” released last April.
