The standard is Essex
David Essex: Live At The BIC, Bournemouth
Wienerworld DVD: WNRD 2579
With a career stretching back almost 50 years David Essex: Live At The BIC, Bournemouth is an excellent reminder of the standard Essex set across a number of genres that far exceed his recording legacy.
Recorded during his ‘Secret Tour’ in 2009, he has never delivered a bad set, and the selection contained within this release concentrate on his hits and the current album.
Always appearing relaxed and at ease, the look in his eyes shows the need for confirmation
that he is delivering what the fans have paid to hear, and he takes nothing for granted. Packed with the favourites ‘Imperial Wizard’, ‘Silver Dream Machine’, ‘Hold Me Close’, ‘Rock On’ and ‘We’re Gonna Make You A Star’, there is absolutely no way this performance could fail to satisfy his legion of fans.
Well filmed, with good quality sound, this is a must-have purchase for those who either saw, or missed this tour.
