Patrick Cronin of the Portsmouth Herald spoke with fans who attended Jewel’s concerts at the Hampton Beach Ballroom Casino on Saturday night, just ahead of her 30th birthday on Sunday (May 23). People who saw the first said Jewel was at the top of her game and said it was a “rocking show,” but those who saw the second performance report a bizarre scene. Witnesses said Jewel went on a tirade of insults from poking fun at fat people to others with no teeth. At one point, she asked the audience to yell requests and then told them to “shut the hell up.” Gloria Dion, who attended the show and now wants her money back, explained, “I saw her live in Boston and it was the greatest show I’ve ever been to. I don’t know if she was having a nervous breakdown or what. She told everyone to stop looking at her teeth and look at her breasts.” Jewel was on stage for about an hour and played only four to five songs. Halfway through the show, Dion said Jewel began to talk about Zoloft and Paxil for about 10 minutes.
