adam ant @ bloomsbury theatre
am 24.09.2007 hatte adam ant seinen grossen auftritt im bloomsbury theatre. ich war leider nicht dabei 🙁
nichtsdestotrotz habe ich euch hier eine review und videos zu bieten. antmusic for sexpeople!
zuerst die review…
adam's first headlining appearance in the uk for almost 12 years and it was as if time had stood still.
confident, witty and engaging as he entertained fans for two hours non stop, with the same energy and charisma he had 30 years ago. a smartly dressed adam in all black, topped with a back trilby hat, walked on stage to a standing ovation, accompanied by his life long friend and classical guitarist, dave pash, immediately had the theatre in fits of laughter by saying, "thank you very much, good night!".
he began by reading and reminiscing, from what is his favourite part of his autobiography, the early days of his life. it was a very relaxed humorous talk, often accompanied with laughter and light banter between dave and other school friends in the audience, if you think a book reading could be a boring thing to do, you'd be wrong, it was just as exciting and entertaining as any part of the show.
between readings, adam would perform acoustic versions of some of his work and cover versions:
- young parisians*
- never trust a man (with egg on his face)*
- catch a falling star [perry como cover]
- softly as i leave you [matt monroe cover]*
- dog eat dog*
- stand and deliver*
- desperate but not serious*
- vive le rock*
- [encore] goody two shoes*
(*) video vorhanden!
adam continued reading and performing, interacting and joking with the audience with no signs that he'd been away from the stage for 12 months, let alone 12 years. for an encore adam and dave walked back on to perform "goody two shoes", thanking everybody for coming and recognising that fans had travelled as far as the usa and australia to see him. just as he had walked on, he walked off to another standing ovation, whistles, cheers and chants of "we want more", which continued on for what seemed an eternity.
once more, a thrilled adam returned to the stage to take a bow, followed once more by dave pash to perform another encore, repeating "never trust a man (with egg on his face). it was obvious adam was extremely comfortable on stage and just as happy to be there as anybody in the crowd, leaving everyone in audience with the promise of more from adam ant.
…und dann die videos…
