Would be very good, but ...
on 4 March 2011
This could have been a great concert with some great numbers from the Rat Pack. RW's voice is good, strong, and in-tune and he carries off these well-known standards with flair and polish. Musically I could not fault him. The band and dancers are really great to work with too. On a big sound system the sound stage is really good and with blu-ray on an LED screen, the effect is almost like being there at the Albert Hall.
All of this could have warranted five stars. But, I personally don't like the regular use of the 'F' word he uses between numbers. Why also the need to light up and smoke a cigerette on stage at one point? Neither adds anything to his performance and just insults the audience. These things, plus a couple of crude remarks about his supporting female dancers bring it down to three stars in my book.
I don't think that one would have seen or heard Messers Sinatra, Martin and Davis doing any of these things.
