GRACE IN ITALY On Friday, 11th May Grace gave a live concert in Pompei, Italy! Francesco was lucky enough to see it and give me this description: "The venue was an ancient Roman theatre (an open space), very suggestive... Grace arrived, carried by 4 'Roman Slaves' on a chariot. She was wearing the white Issey Miyake cap-vest in the shape of a star (the same she wore in other concerts). She opened with 'Slave To The Rhythm' then changed to perform 'La Vie en Rose' with a Philip Treacy hat (the violet one she had on the Ibiza concert) and the same jacket she wore at the last Philip Treacy fashion show in London. (The stage had the 'usual' black stair and she had two people on percussion and guitar and the backgrond singer). I was very surprised she sang 'La Vie en Rose' in a very high key... After that, she changed in the long black gown with the red border to perform 'Libertango'. Then she performed "My Jamaican Guy' sporting a 'dread locks' wig and other change of costume. Next was "Warm Leatherette" (with the guitar played with her microphone!). At the end of this she changed in the 'Iron Armour' costume, to sing "Pull Up To The Bumper" and went into the audience dancing... She went out again for an encore and sang 'Hurricane' saying that this was her new single out in September!!! She was in top form, physically and vocally, she was very slim and seemed to enjoy herself very much! At the end of the show she presented her band (amongst them her son!)."
