"I can't hear you," says Sharleen, holding the microphone out to the crowd for them to sing bits of a song here and there. I'm no gig-guru, but I'm pretty sure I pay for my ticket so the performers sing the song for me rather than the other way around. Normally I cringe at this behaviour but by the end of the gig I am doing what I am told and singing with aplomb! Therein lies the power of Spiteri -a show-woman who has the chops to back up her cheeky stage banter with stellar vocals and an oasis of stage honesty in a desert of jaded pretence found with so many performers today. Ninety minutes of why we still love this band in the comfortable seated arrangement of the Eventim Apollo... middle-aged heaven!
