Gig Review – Little Steven and The Disciples of Soul, Shepherds Bush Empire, 27 July 2018

Okay, confession time. The only reason I went to the Steve Van Zandt gig tonight is that he has a habit of bringing out some very famous special guests. Last time it was Paul McCartney, and given Sir Paul only launched his new album and played the Cavern Club the other day, it was a risk worth taking.

The light was, well, not. The Nikon D4S flatters to deceive but this was a dark show, shot at the limits of what the camera can do which is a shame given how colourful it all was. Anyway, it was over in a flash (not that you can use flash of course), no special guests, and we were out after three songs. He’s very good, don’t get me wrong, but I probably shouldn’t have gone along tonight really.
