Kitt best known for her role as the sassy 1960s Catwoman on televisions Batman says technology in the music industry is taking over and becoming more important than the actual artists.
Case in point: Kitt says if you go to a big arena concert nowadays, youre probably so focused on the lights, flashes, and theatrics of the concert that you overlook the music.
Says the 80-year-old Kitt: At concerts, I have no idea who the hell is singing what. All I know is that theres fireworks overhead and 60,000 people crammed into the arena. Its just not enjoyable anymore.
Kitt, whose entertainment career has spanned more than 60 years, believes the rise of special effects in concerts is ruining the intimacy and salsa shows once had.
Kitt just wrapped up her latest concert tour in London, where she didnt need pyrotechnics to impress audiences, and performed in smaller venues to get more personal with fans.
She adds, Value should be in a performers talent, not in their tricks and money put into a flashy concert.
