On the eve of the release of her new album ‘Other’, ALISON MOYET delivered a stupendous performance at Hackney’s Round Chapel as part of Amazon Prime’s series of filmed intimate concerts. The evening started with Ms Moyet as her own support act, courtesy of a Q&A moderated by journalist Pete Paphides.
It was triumphant performance from ALISON MOYET with interesting facelifts of her solo hits, a welcome airing of YAZOO evergreens and best of all, excellent new material. More Inside ›
