“When I die, I hope to go to Lake Tahoe.” That was the Twitter message Matt Nathanson sent to his 88,600 followers after his July 21 performance at Harvey’s Outdoor Arena.
Nathanson was inspired after his rousing performance before an unusually early arriving crowd of more than 5,000, however, at one point of the show he probably actually did feel like he was dying.
The charismatic singer ran throughout the arena with a wireless microphone during the song “Headphones.”
“I forgot about the altitude,” he puffed once he had climbed back onto the stage. “It feels like someone kicked me in the chest.”
Nevertheless, he was able to add humor to his situation: “I want to thank the guy who grabbed my ass.”
