Howard Jones stated, “songs can really lift your spirits & that his work hit a chord with young people who were struggling.“ I agree as this is the reason I have always been a HJ fan. His lyrics resonated in my heart, helped me get above some really tough teenage times & still lifts my spirits to this very day.
entertaining talents of Mime, Jed Hoile.
Jones thoroughly engaged his audience & it was magical to hear his fans
(80’s teens now adults) singing word for word, loud & proud, at times drowning him out, was totally PRICELESS! His songs are filled with philosophy, inner peace, giving fans confidence & encouragement to express their feelings. This show brought a back to the future type feel with tons of fluorescents, so reminiscent of the 80’s, lighting up with every techno, addictive HJ beat we love, making this an extravagant experience.
This magnificent 62-year-old star was rejuvenating & in rare form.
Jones introduced yet another NEW original, The Eagle Will Fly Again from the soundtrack Fly, from the movie Eddie the Eagle based on Eddie Edwards, Britain’s 1st Olympic sky jumper, also found on the current 3-CD release.
after almost 35 years!”
Fans lept from their seats to the stage to experience his NEW Joy & to feel his enigmatic Human Touch both from his 2015 album ENGAGE, interactive is his middle name. These 2 pieces reconnected me to the past where my favorite 2 albums Humans Lib & Dream Into Action left off & he wasn’t done yet. In between songs Howard would inject stories of his childhood or how his songs came to be.
