Strange to go to a gig these days where most of the men are still in possession of their hair. That was the first striking thing about this concert.
The other one was this song – a new one by Amanda Palmer – which was absolutely mesmerising. Wouldn’t have thought a voice and a ukelele accompaniment could have produced such an astounding effect. Audience were open-mouthed in wonder and many came close to tears.
The ukelele doesn’t come across so well on this recording as it did at the O2 but the steady camera hand helps convey the emotion well. Excellent job by belalionne on her YouTube channel
Thanks to Anya in Kyiv for instructing me to see Amanda Palmer. Had no idea what to expect having heard only one song by her.
