If you pay attention to the dates on the blog then you’ll know this is seriously past due for the A to Z challenge. I made it one of my goals, though, to finish the letters so here is my letter “S.”
Sade is one of those singers like Adele, who does not tour very often. When she came out with her “Soldier of Love” CD we were hoping she would do a show near us.
John Legend was the opening act, which was a pleasant surprise. His first song was a cover of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep!” We had some real Legend fans around us who kept shouting, “Sing it, John!” “That’s right!”
Sade took FOREVER to come out. We had heard rumors that she was slow to start her shows but we were beginning to get frustrated. All that changed, however, when the first beats of “Soldier of Love” started and she rose from underneath the stage.
She sang songs from the new album and also lots of her hits from other albums. She had a really good backup band. When she came out for her last few songs after a costume change, she wasn’t wearing shoes! I thought that was pretty funny.
Unfortunately, because she was so late in starting the show, we had to leave before the encore or we would miss the last BART train home. Still, it was a great show and she has not done a big tour since then so I’m glad we went.
Even though the challenge was over a month ago, you can still click over to the main A to Z Challenge page to see what other participants have come up with for this letter.
I have one more letter left, “V,” and then I really will have finished the A to Z!
