Madeleine Peyroux: At the Dunstan Playhouse

Madeleine Peyroux played Adelaide’s Dunstan Playhouse on the 8th and 9th June 2018 ahead of the release of her new album ‘Anthem’. Which is due in August.

After Adelaide, Peyroux will play Melbourne’s international Jazz Festival, moving on to dates in Canberra, Sydney and Perth before flying back to the US for a national tour from September.

Peyroux’s style is unique. Being compared to Billie Holiday early in her career, she has developed her own distinct song delivery, which is both compelling and beguiling to witness.

Moving comfortably between English and French. Peyroux treated the enthralled Adelaide audience, with numbers from her vast repertoire. Beginning with her first number ‘J’ai Deux Amours’ alone on acoustic guitar before being joined on stage by her four piece band.

Delivering the Leonard Cohen classic ‘Dance me to the end of love’ in her own inimitable style Peyroux took us through songs by Bob DylanYou’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go’ and Serge Gainsbougs ‘La Javanaise’, before playing songs from her forthcoming album ‘Anthem’. Getting the audience singing along with ‘Honey Party’ with its very unique piano solo. Before delivering a groovy ‘Everything I do Gohn be funky’. Finishing the night with ‘Fun out of life’.
