Review:- "Paloma Faith at Liverpool ACC"
THIS fantastic British singer, songwriter and actress,
Faith, who comes
from the London Borough of Hackney, looked at home in Liverpool as she delivered
retro and eccentric style to a very receptive audience, on 30 March 2015. Due to
a scheduling issue at the Liverpool ACC, the date of her return to the City had
to be moved, but this did not put her, or her fans, off! Commenting on this
hiccup she said to the media and to her fans:- "Sadly, Saturday night was
postponed due to reasons beyond my control, but you're Liverpudlian and you
treat Monday nights like Saturday nights anyway!" and that is just what
happened! The night started with support act Vintage Trouble, an American
blues/rock band, who had come all the way from Los Angeles, California They soon
got the place warmed up in true Hollywood style. Then, as if she was on the set
of a Blockbuster Movie set, the 33 year old
came out on stage looking
stunning in an amazing dress that oozed style and class. Since her arrival, just
5 years ago as a chart topper, she has not lost her way, making hit after hit.
With After taking some time out
Paloma is returning to the charts with a new
album, producing singles like:- 'Can't Rely on You' and
'Only Love Can Hurt Like This'. The album has had input from a legendary roster of music icons,
singer-songwriters and producers: Pharrell Williams, Diane Warren, John Legend
and Raphael Saadiq to name few, anticipation was high, and she delivered and
then some! The show she put on included songs from her platinum selling album:-
'A Perfect Contradiction' also her new single:- 'Ready for the Good Life'. After the
sell-out performance ended she tweeted:- "Thank you for last night Liverpool!
And thank you to everyone who came to this tour it was such a moving…"
attended, please do let us know what you thought of her act. One of the odd
things on the night was that she also spoke in the show about the importance of
voting at the next election. This was mostly well received, but a few did
comment on Facebook in a negative manner, like Kenny Newmarch who said:- "Was
great, but political ramble spoilt it for me, more songs next time please", but
you can't win them all. In our view, it was well done and we agree with the
comment:- "It is important to vote" and more Celebs should remind people to do
it!" Over all, both on Twitter and on Facebook, the abundance have commented
positively, saying that the event was "Amazing" even our photographer, Jo
away buzzing with delight after the show! "For now we are left with fantastic
Paloma, we look forward to your return to our City..." as one of her
many fans told us! Please email us with your views to:-
