As most of you know Steve just finished the sold out UK leg of the “Station To Station” Tour with Earl Slick, Bernhard Fowler, Lisa Ronson and other very talented musicians.
The UK shows went down incredibly well (and this is an understatement!!!).
For me personally the guys and girls on this tour aren’t just a bunch of outstandingly great musicians covering Bowie songs. This band manages to make the tunes their own and put their individual stamp on ’em. Bernhard’s voice gives me goosebumps (what a singer!) and Earl’s guitar playing is simply mind-blowing.
Steve does an amazing job playing sax and percussion the way we know and love him for: full of energy, passion, dedication and joy. This man gets better every time I see and hear him play. Sometimes I think: “Wow, he can’t get any better than this!”. And then he proves me wrong the next second: Oh yes, he can!
I know I am not quite objective but I also know that most of you agree that it is almost impossible to take your eyes off of him when he performs. So energetic and powerful.
Each night Bernhard introduces Steve to the crowd like this: “And on ‘things’: our Everything Man, Mr. Steve Norman.” I think he nails it with this.
Right now they are in Japan and already played 2 shows today (yes, 2 shows a day!!!). Same reaction, same enthusiasm by the fans. Very happy for them.
For those of you that had no chance to see Steve play on this tour I recorded a few special moments. One I want to share with you today: The “Win” sax solo Steve played at the 02 Islington in London. What a winner this was…
I hope you enjoy.
