Good grief! I was belatedly reading Panorama (the Saturday arts section of The Canberra Times) today and came across an ad for a Howard Jones concert.
Howard Jones?! What on earth is he doing playing Canberra? And, even more perplexing, The Southern Cross Club! (more widely known for it's jazz concerts rather than acoustic tours of 80s Synthpop stars. An oxymoron if ever there was one)
How can he justify $45 for a ticket when you can see the (reformed) INXS and Simple Minds (plus Arrested Development) at the AIS Arena the night before for $90?
Has anyone in Canberra even bought a Howard Jones album in the last 20 years? (Well OK, I bought a tape of his 12" album last year for 50 cents but I don't think that counts)
And, most importantly, does he still wear those huge colourful fluffy handknitted mohair jumpers? If so, maybe we could arrange a special Stitch 'n' Bitch outing on the night....
