Robyn – Venue – November 19, 2010
The capacity crowd at Venue was treated to an all out dance party for Robyn’s hugely anticipated show. From start to finish she danced, sang and had the audience right along with her every beat.
Taking the stage dressed like she was set for a stroll along a fjord in a jacket, cap and platform hiking boots she stood out beside her white lab coat wearing backing band. She soon started shedding the outer layer to reveal her own white over shirt then finally a Star Trek-esque cat suit, ready for non-stop dancing.
The 90 minute set featured mostly songs from her recent Body Talk I & II albums with a couple of her 90’s era hits. This was pure pop at it’s best, no frills, no gimmicks, just music and lights and dancing. She was definitely not dancing on her own, the audience and Robyn danced from start to finish, it’s no wonder she needed to stop to eat a banana half way through! The energy from the room was electric and contagious…I defy anyone to not have had a good time! From the buzz generated by this show, I’m sure when she returns to play a bigger room it will sell in a heartbeat or should I say with every heartbeat?
