Meredith Brooks opened for the Eurythmics in the duo's sole West Coast gig at the Staples Center Thursday night. This was a last-minute thing, with no promotion. MB told the crowd she'd got the offer just a few days ago. She played for 40 minutes: I Need, Careful What You Wish For, Cosmic Woo Woo, What Would Happen, All For Nothing, I Have Everything, Lay Down (with Crenshaw kids), Shout and Bitch. Referring to one of the night's beneficiaries, Greenpeace, she reminded everyone that she was from Oregon and was "one of the original tree huggers." Some nifty solos, especially on "Shout," but her request for the crowd to sing along on the Bitch chorus was unwise, since no one knew the words. -- Anon.Who would have guessed music fans in L.A. would not know the words to Bitch!!!
