8/7 Hilary Duff, Portland Ore.

I have to admit that I never envisioned myself in the front few rows of a Hillary Duff show. But my journalistic and sociological curiosity got the best of me, and the show was quite different than any my preconceptions. For one, I envisioned an innocent teenage icon, with hordes of screaming tweens singing back each lyric. Well, the screaming tweens were in full force, but I was surprised to find 20, 30 and 50 somethings singing along as well. As far as the innocent teen icon, she held the icon status, but the innocence may have gone the way of Lizzy McGuire. She was scantily dressed throughout the performance, and was doing suggestive dances to the rhythm with her entire dance crew. In all honesty, the show was entertaining. Hillary does have stage presence, and her backup band consists of solid musicians that played groovable music, but my eardrums are still recovering from the piercing screams while my own innocence may have taken a small hit along the way.
