Lisa Stansfield at The Lowry

Lisa Stansfield at The Lowry

Last night at The Lowry was definitely 'the right time' for Lisa Stansfield.

Looking and sounding as good as she ever did,Lisa took the stage with her band of superb musicians and entertained a packed house for some 90 minutes or so without any interval at all.

Bedect in a wondeful Semi-diaphanous full length dress,complete with 'horn'like fascinator,she took control of the stage and her audience, from the very start.

All the hits were there too."People Hold On","The Real Thing","All Woman" and  "Change," all memorable, as was her final song,the global hit , "All Around the World". Most people we spoke to enjoyed the ease with which she moved around the stage and bantered with her adoring and loyal fans. 

With Father's Day over the weekend and her Dad in the audience,this was further evidence of her 'grounded' attitude for which she is famously known.

Special note too must be made about the great acoustic of the Lowry itself,which always complements great,live performers such as Lisa.

We where also treated to several tracks from her forthcoming album due soon.On the strength of the ones we heard,it promises to be a real return to form.
