God of Hellfire on sparkling form
At 72 Arthur is not easing back and cashing in on his legendary status. Instead he is performing new material as well as the (wonderful) stuff from the sixties with enormous energy and power. The band are a perfect foil to the great man, clearly enjoying what they do. It's worth mentioning the new young guitarist, who was superb to begin with and just got better as the evening progressed. Finally, the Crazy World would not be complete without the flamboyantly costumed Angel weaving her dances around Arthur and the rest of the band. There was humour - tonight a bit of politics - drama, surrealism and craziness. An artist, band and performance like no other.
