THE TICKET GIG OF THE WEEK
All the stars came out to play on Tuesday when Adele came to town – Saoirse Ronan, Daniel Day Lewis, Yvonne Keating and Síle Seoige (we’ll have what she’s having). The most important star was on stage, though, singing her heart out one minute and chatting personably to the capacity crowd the next. This was the kind of gig where all the ducks were lined in a row, and where classy, no-nonsense soul/pop was lapped up by all and sundry. Highpoint? Someone Like You – easily the most emotive pop song of recent times. Lowpoint? All those chatterboxes at the back. Great gig, though.
