Limahl Live – KajaFax Reports
The KajaFax team have just returned from a fabulous weekend of music in Scotland….and what a fabulous weekend it was!
The weather was patchy at best, and we did get a little wet on the Sunday show, but other than that we could not have asked for more. Each and every artist was superb – standout performances being given from Jimmy Somerville, Roland Gift, Marc Almond, ABC, and Adam Ant.
We are however here to discuss Limahl, and we start with his set list for the day. We posted last week what we thought might be on that list, and despite Limahl mischievously trying to throw us off the scent, we were not too far wrong!
The performance, introduced by compère ‘Doctor’ (from Doctor and the Medics) was:
Ooh to be Ah
Inside to Outside
Only for Love
Hang on Now
Never Ending Story
We were fortunate enough to be at the event as guests of Limahl, and were given the privilege of going backstage to have a few words with him just after his performance. Steve and I took the opportunity to get a group photograph of him with the KajaFax team, and also had a quick chat about the day’s performance and of course the KajaFax website. We learned that festival performances differ from the norm in so far as there is no full sound check prior to taking the stage, and that this can sometimes throw up some unexpected technical difficulties. It seems that today was one of those days, although the crowd would have been unaware of it other than a slight delay prior to the beginning of the set. Whilst those last minute fixes were being applied, the fans were treated to a short ‘a cappella’ performance, so you could say the glitches worked in our favour 😉
The opening song was ‘Kajagoogoo’ and regardless of any technical issues that may have been going on behind the scenes, so far as we could hear, things were going perfectly. The band were tight and Limahl’s performance and on stage presence was both energetic and as ever vocally flawless. He bombarded an appreciative crowd with hit after hit and treated us to a fantastic performance of Inside to Outside which has never before been performed live and was a true highlight for every fan. With a repertoire of songs like that in his armoury, surely a full length solo gig should be in the diary?
Steve and I would like to extend our thanks to Limahl and the Rewind tour management team for their help and support in both bringing us to the event and making us feel incredibly welcome backstage.
All that is left to show are the images from the day, presented in this gallery…..
