HOT: Goldfrapp, Royal Festival Hall Southbank
Listening to Alison Goldfrapp's sexy voice, especially while seated in the sleep-inducing Royal Festival Hall, was like slowly sinking in a warm soothing bed of feather down. But it was getting me all sleepy after a hard week at the office, and the white-robed string section (except for the guy in white tennis shorts playing the guitar!) and Polyphonic Spree-style choir didn't help. Luckily one brave soul started dancing in the balcony corridor, and then he was joined by other excited fans who had obviously been itching to dance, and the whole place turned into a glam pop disco worshipping at her little booted feet. My final thought: How many clown outfits does Goldfrapp own?
