The applause was so loud and insistent that I had to respond with several encores. I was numb with happiness, when it was over, I knew that this alone must be my life and my world.
Leni Riefenstahl
I don’t walk off and come back for encores. I figure I can add four weeks to my life that way.
Colin Hay
I always give the encore over to chaos, so people can yell out requests and I can hack my way through a song that I don’t really know anymore.
Liz Phair
When I was 4 or 5, I attended my father’s concerts. He very often played Strauss waltzes as encores and I saw something happening with the audience.
Andre Rieu
I quite like the drama of an encore. I think an encore is for those artists who are inclined to do dramatic gestures, and I certainly would say I am inclined towards them.
Florence Welch
I’ve seen nearly every Encores! show. I love the second acts so much because you just see desperation and inspiration in equal measure.
Douglas Carter Beane

Bun E. Carlos
In my concerts, people love when I sing a Latin encore with guitar.
Juan Diego Florez
It’s so much fun to have vocal groups out on the road because we get to see them do their thing, and at the end of the night, we come back, and we all do a big thing together for the encore with ‘American Band.’
Jay DeMarcus
Five or six songs leaked from the original version of ‘Encore.’ So I had to go in and make new songs to replace them.
What I love about Encores! is that it’s a tremendous amount of work in a short amount of time, but it’s just so festive and so celebratory and fun. It harkens back to the old days of just getting together and putting on a show.
Miriam Shor
I do not, as a rule, do encores. When I have finished playing, I have indeed finished playing. I have nothing left; there has been no reserve.
Bill Dixon
It wasn’t just about flashing lights and pinball machines blowing up and things like that. It was about using encores, bringing back the good songs and using techniques that I knew about from rock performance.
