Only in Brisbane
With the Brisbane Festival done and dusted for another year I will have to add this to my list of highlights for the year. Where else in the world would you get a free Chris Isaak concert - with a crowd turn out in the 1000's - all in a place where the artist performed his last Brisbane concert less than 6 months ago. Goes to show how big the guys fan base is and with a concert of the quality presented you can understand why. Chris and the guys (got to love Kenny!) played for the entire advertised time - 8.30pm - 10.00pm and then capped it off with a 5 song encore! Wow. Have to say that the rendition of Return to me got me - will have to try and track down a copy of the Baja Sessions album based on the strength of the performance. Pure honey....as if I wasn't melting already. Have always had a soft spot for Chris and his work, but am well and truly ga ga now.
