Marianne Faithfull perform at the Barbican Hall in London's glitzy Barbican. She was essentially promoting her recent album Horses and High Heels but also taking a gambol through her career.
Stu has always been a Faithfull fan - she has all the right credentials; wild child of the 60s, great croaky voice and a woman with a 'history'.
The show was good - almost two hours of straight stand up and belt them out performanaces. She was in good form too - acting really excited to be there. She said, "I have a scan tomorrow so I'm smoking furiously in case they make me give up". Let's hope that's not prophetic.
Stand out tracks of the night were; Working Class Hero, Why Did We Have To Part?, That’s How Every Empire Falls, Back In Baby’s Arms, Prussian Blue, As Tears Go By, Broken English and of course the wonderful The Ballad of Lucy Jordan.
