Jeff Bridges Premieres New Songs at Private LA Concert

Actor-turned-musician Jeff Bridges has an album coming out in August, and he was good enough to share a few tracks Tuesday night at the Troubadour. FishbowlLA managed to score an invite to the private concert, and arrived just in time to hear Quincy Jones introduce Bridges as “my baby brother.”

The Bridges family was in attendance, and the highlight of the night had Jeff singing “The Man in Me” to his wife Sue. Pierce Brosnan and album producer T Bone Burnett were spotted in the crowd, and standing just behind us were actors Ryan Reynolds and Olivia Wilde, looking cozy.

It’s not entirely A-list caliber stuff, but it’s still the kind of celeb smorgasbord that few other American cities can rival.

At the Lotus end of the show floor, the unholy trifecta of Sharon Stone, Billy Baldwin and KISS member Paul Stanley helped unveil sparkling new automotive offerings. Sorry to say, but if this were a movie, it would go straight to VOD. Other celebrations were a little more high-brow.
