Grace Jones was amazing,
spectacular voice, unbelieveable stamina, hula hoop on waist twirling effortlessly for about 20 minutes
costume changes, sparkles spangles, headpieces, skyrise shoes
butt on display that defies her age
high level energy
rocking the stripper pole
forgiven that she called the audience impatient & "Mother F ers" [since when is that a compliment?]
a memorable show
sang the classics
but disappointing it that she started 45 minutes late, and then finish 10 minutes, early with no encore??
could have otherwise seen more of BB King

GRACE JONES!

So obvious that she enjoys her work and interacting with the crowd. She talked constantly to us in the breaks unlike Bryan Ferry who at Leeuwen in Feb barely said a word and refused to play a good number of his past hits.

Grace is eclectic and corlourful, I'd pay to watch her even if she didn't sing, she's just an interesting human. The band was exceptional. Gotta love Grace's pumping bass lines in her material. Saw her at Enmore Theatre 15 months ago and the show is exactly the same. All the big songs are there, but I reckon she's wasting her time with Hurricane at show's end. It's a dud!

Glad there wasn't a full house in the big tent as I was able to get front row after many of the Toots and the Maytals crowd left.

Am considering heading back for Tuesday night to watch her and Elvis Costello. Anyone like to tell me what he was like?

Have you seen the photos of her on stage at the bluesfestival byron bay 2011 in the daily telegraph, they should be put in a sex magazine not a newspaper headline...

Chick .. aged in her 60s.

During Tuesday night's performance of Slave to the Rhythm she sang the whole song while hula hooping. I think it went for around 15 minutes.

Great. I hope she comes back next year.

Mr Dylan, on the other hand, can stay home.

My only question is: where were all her fans at the end of the gig? By the time I stopped by, she was still on stage and everyone appeared to have left the tent.

And the question isn't just one for Grace Jones fans. The same actually goes to John Legend fans. I walked into the tent just before he returned for his encore and was almost able to walk up and shake his hand. There were people leaving before he finished his encore. If you had stayed that long, why leave 5 minutes before the end?

She was entertaining, but my God I feel sorry for her sons that have to stand there and watch their Mum shake her ass like that.

Grace Jones was 45 mins late on Friday, finally appeared looking like Lady Gaga, sang something totally unimpressive then had teh audacity to say to tell the crowd they were impatient. We left then - as did quite a lot of others - and I wouldn't waste any more time on her. Rude people aren't welcome.
