A DBS Visa Platinum Evening with Elaine Paige

I attended the last performance of Elaine Paige's concert tour with Shuquan yesterday. The concert was WOW!! Worth every dollar I spent, even though our seats were damn far away from the stage. She's a really versatile performer and has a sense of humour too. Britain's First Lady of Musical Theatre indeed! The songs included classics from past musicals, Gershwin and some recent stuff as well. She cracks some jokes along the way, my favourite part is when she was thanking the sponsors and she said, "It's DBS.... right?"

The band of about six people playing the music was also really cool. Some of the members take on multiple roles. The percussionist on the left also plays the flute and saxophone solos. The pianist is also the conductor and musical director.

One thing I noticed about the audience is that Singaporeans are a lazy lot. They only stand up when Elaine Paige walks to their side of the stage. Otherwise, they clap in their seats. I must admit though, that we were really enthusiastic in giving applause, it went on for a really long while.

Maybe I should buy her CD when my allowance comes. Watching a good concert is really therapeutic; it made me temporarily forget the onslaught of duties awaiting me in Khatib Camp.
