IT was a wet start to Friday night’s Thetford Forest gig but after a torential downpour the weather and performers soon livened up a damp crowd.
Sophie Ellis-Bexter, appearing in fluorescent pink wellies, fought and won a hard job to inspire the crowd but three songs in, the waterproof ponchos were off, the sun appeared weakly and the first notes of Murder on the Dance Floor brought everybody to their feet.
Erasure, in comparison to their former extravagant style of show, made a somewhat discreet appearance on stage. However their easy relaxed manner soon had their fan’s complete attention ready for their first song Hideaway followed by old favourites such as Ship of fools, Fingers and Thumbs and Always.
