Eurythmics Songbook @ Royal Festival Hall...


Last Friday night Stuart and I went to watch Dave Steward perform the Eurythmics Songbook at the Royal Festival Hall on London's glitzy South Bank.

Asked by Nile Rogers to perform the Eurythmics hits - and with Annie Lennox not being involved (see others for comments on this) - we weren't sure what to expect.

Would it simply be a karaoke night? We needn't have worried - it was great.

Thumbing through his extensive little black book, Stewart knows a few people in the business to step into Annie's big shoes. And step they did.

Ryan Molloy, Emeli Sande, Beverley Knight, Folami and Kimberley Davis all sang beautifully.

We were treated to all the hits (well, most of them), a dazzling light show, a gospel choir, and the obligatory confetti canon.

By the end we were all up on our feet dancing and singing away.

It was a great night out.
