The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown - 31st October 2014 - Boileroom, Guildford

I saw The Crazy World of Arthur Brown at the Boileroom in Guildford on Friday night. It was an absolutely enthralling show, without a doubt one of the best gigs I have ever seen. Arthur's voice was amazingly powerful and controlled and he had the energy and dynamism of performers 50 years his junior. His band was superb, uniformly excellent with perfect timing, and with the addition of a dancer, this was a true performance piece. I was lucky enough to be right in front of the stage and able to provide a shoulder when Arthur left the stage for an audience encounter. If you get a chance to see this tour, then do - I can't recommend it highly enough. Halloween 2014 was one of the true musical highlights of my life.
