After an 18 year hiatus, the original line-up of the legendary En Vogue returned to London for a sold-out show at the indigO2 last night.
That Grape Juice was in the house and can vouch for the fact that the ladies blew the roof off! See for yourself; peep their performances of ‘Don’t Let Go’, ‘Free Your Mind’, ‘Never Gonna Get It’ after the jump. Interestingly, the ladies also performed ‘Riddle’ (with Dawn, who had left the group when the song was released).
Don’t Let Go
Free Your Mind
Never Gonna Get It
Real, pure, and raw talent. Despite all being over 40, Cindy, Maxine, Terry, and Dawn, put on a show many a young starlet would find hard to top. I mean, though just 22, I can see that they simply don’t ‘make’ acts like this any more. While I’ll save the “real vs processed talent” rant for my head, one can only hope new artists really understand the importance of working hard to be great at what you do. For, it’s the very reason the En Vogue’s and co are still thrilling audiences and making a living. Real talent lives for ever and inspires others. New hair colours and autotuned vocals? Not so much.
