Review: Howard Jones delights the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater
Pop singer-songwriter Howard Jones has become quite a familiar face in these parts, and it seems like all of his shows are events not to miss, especially if you're a fan of songs like Everlasting Love and No One Is To Blame. So when he came to the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater last week, it was a can't-miss event for '80s diehards.
Stuck in the '80s had correspondent Sherrie Williams check out the gig, and she writes:
Howard seemed to really appreciate the audience reaction, coming from behind his keyboards several times during each song to sing with the audience gathered in front of the stage, dispensing handshakes and high fives throughout. On three or four occasions, he knelt down on the stage and took the hand of a female concertgoer for a verse or a line of a song. From my spot at center stage on the floor, I was fortunate to be the object of this treatment during the chorus of Like To Get to Know You Well, much to my bliss.
For New Song, Jones strapped on the keytar and led a rousing sing-along. Other songs that received similar sing-along attention were What Is Love?, No One is to Blame, Everlasting Love, Life in One Day and Things Can Only Get Better.
