GRACE JONES @ HAMMERSTEIN BALLROOM: YOUR LIFE IS MY SPORT

Nowadays, the term ‘epic’ is thrown around rather loosely. However, there’s simply no other phrase to describe last night’s mind-blowing two hour set. Grace Jones is a force of nature. I’m still in absolute awe! EPIC indeed.

More photos, the full setlist & a Grace Jones tune AFTER THE JUMP…

(Setlist) This Is Life. William’s Blood. I’m Crying. Love Is The Drug. Well Well Well. Sunset Sunrise. La Vie En Rose. My Jamaican Guy. Corporate Cannibal. Devil In My Life. Demolition Man. Love You To Life. Libertango. Nightclubbing. Hurricane.

(Encore) Pull Up To The Bumper. Slave To The Rhythm.

    The costumes are fantastic! They look like the work of Eiko Ishioka; can anyone confirm that?

    Grace is an ageless 61 years. She was born 19th of May 1948
    She makes me believe that age is not an issue and music and fashion should focus on talent
    not youth obsession.
    She is a true Diva and Icon and her work was and is
    always modern and futuristic.

    I LOVE HER

    I had to sell my tickets due to health issues. This post almost makes up for missing the show! Thank you.
