Last night at the Adelphi theatre in London, Lucie Jones took to the stage for her solo concert, which doubled up as a live recording for her upcoming album – “Live at the Adelphi”.
Lucie had special guests John Owen-Jones and Marisha Wallace. She was also joined on-stage by the London Musical Theatre Orchestra – who was led and conducted by Freddie Tapner.
Throughout the evening, Lucie shared many special anecdotes – but these will not feature on the album, as she told them in-between all the songs. There were some corkers of some stories, which not only made us the audience laugh, but also Lucie herself. It would be unfair to divulge these stories, so if you weren’t at the Adelphi last night, you’ll just have to wait for Lucie to tell those stories again!
Lucie opened her show with “Don’t Rain on my Parade” and closed it with “Bring Him Home”.
Other songs performed included:
- The Prayer
- Children of the Outcasts
- Moon River
- That’s Life; and of course…
- Never Give Up On You
It would be cruel to divulge the full playlist, as it would spoil the album for when it is released in the Spring. As I have just mentioned, we had the joy of seeing Lucie perform her Eurovision entry “Never Give Up On You” again – but this time with the 22-piece orchestra. This arrangement was pure gold and gave us an idea how the song would’ve being performed, had the orchestra still been used at the Eurovision Song Contest.
Here is a reminder of Lucie’s performance from the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, held in Kyiv:
Lucie was asked what is like representing the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest in the Official Show Programme. She had the following to say:
“Eurovision could have gone one of two very different ways for me. The British public are famously very vocal with their opinions on our Eurovision entries and thankfully they were very supportive (THANKS!). We had a great time in Kyiv (Kiev) and the result was better than the UK had had in a long time, so I was thrilled! The team at the BBC were brilliant to work with and were extremely conscious about not putting pressure on me, which was fantastic.”
Lucie had the support from her family, friends, the cast and crew of Waitress, as well as members of the general public. Everyone in the Adelphi last night can safely say Lucie Jones not only gave five star performances, but showed there is a life beyond the Eurovision Song Contest too.
To hear the concert in full on the album – “Live at the Adelphi” – follow @luciejones1 on Twitter, where Lucie will keep you up-to-date with release information.
Simply don’t miss out on the album if you missed out on attending the concert last night in London.
