“She Looked Quite Glam”: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes First Public Appearance Since Cancer Surgery: Attends Concert Celebrating Herself

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared in public Monday night, her first public outing since her lung cancer surgery last December. Ginsburg, 85, attended a concert celebrating herself titled, Notorious RBG in Song, that featured her daughter-in-law, soprano Patrice Michaels. Attendees said Ginsburg looked, “glam”, “magnificent” and “great”.

One man who said he spoke with and was hugged by Ginsburg said she looked “resplendent”.


No photos appear to have been posted yet of Ginsburg tonight. A few photos from the concert were posted.

The concert took place at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. It was sponsored by the National Constitution Center which aired a livestream of the concert.

Fans in attendance reported Ginsburg looked well. NPR Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg gushed that Ginsburg looked glamorous, “Spotted at a concert by her daughter-in-law, the notorious RBG out for the first time after her surgery in December! She looked quite glam , RBG in song”

Attorney Joe Palmore said Ginsburg “looked great .”


Jeffrey Rosen, President of the Constitution Center said Ginsburg looked “magnificent!”



Ginsburg will likely not attend the State of the Union address Tuesday night as she has a history of boycotting those given by Republican presidents, reported the Washington Post, which also noted that Ginsburg’s appearance at the concert was low-key.

“Ginsburg did not speak, and many in the crowd did not know she was there. She sat in the back, and most saw her only as they left the performance. Michaels did not announce her presence.”

The Notorious RBG in Song concert will be held again in Chicago in May. Featured in the promo photo below is RBG with Patrice Michaels.


UPDATE: Still no photos, but a confirmation from a spox for the Supreme Court.

The AP reported no photos were allowed, and that Ginsburg’s son said she is walking a mile per day.

“The National Constitution Center, which sponsored the concert, did not permit photography.”

“James Ginsburg said before the concert that his mother is walking a mile a day and meeting with her personal trainer twice a week.”
