Review by Richard Lambert, 3 Stars

Great songs, West End lighting rig and full scale video all combine in this one-off concert from ENTERTAINERS touring FAST LOVE across the UK. It looks tremendous and fans of George Michael and WHAM! had a blast at this concert at the Adelphi, on top of the lighting rig for resident musical “BACK TO THE FUTURE”.

The lighting used great colour choices with the usual effects packages. Not theatrical in style, more rock n roll where the singer is in a Follow-Spot while the lights rove around. Often roving the audience.

The video content fairly standard in nature but matching the mood and style of the songs set list. Blackouts in-between. Haze and fog effects judicously used.

Anyone taking photos or videos of the concert was in for a treat – this is one show that looks fantastic on mobile phones! With the 5 piece band mainly dark and in silhouette, similarly the backing vocalists, it possibly looks better on the mobile phones than in real life.

The audience encouraged to be mainly on their feet and dancing throughout made it a little difficult to watch and see the stage however, without any dancers, and dark musicians, it didn’t matter so much if you couldn’t see. Large scale sound processing enabled a big sound throughout.

A definite must-see for fans of George Michael!
