I have loved Bryan Ferry's music since I saw him performing "Virginia Plain" on TOTP way back in 1972. The main reason for that? His unique voice, of course. Now I totally accept that our Bryan isn't young any more, and his voice will have weakened with age. He no longer has the power of old, and that's perfectly OK .. we love him anyway, right?
So, I was hugely disappointed to hear his vocals 'augmented' by no less than four backing singers throughout pretty much every song in this show. Yes they are all exceptionally good singers, but ITS FERRY I WANT TO HEAR, NOT THEM! So his voice isn't so strong these days - what's the mixing desk for if not to compensate?
That gripe aside … it's a fantastic set list and a hugely talented band as others have said. The audio and visual quality is excellent …. if only we could have heard the old sod a bit more *sighs*
Still love ya though, Bryan.
