NIK KERSHAW AT "HERE AND NOW" BIRMINGHAM NEC
Sat 11th Dec 2004 - Review by Charmaine Haughton
See the pictures
I saw the 'Here & Now' show last Saturday and had a great night. The show was real fun and Nik's set was far the best, with Limahl probably coming second in performance and showmanship.
It was great to see how Nik hidden his negative views on these kind of shows and the NEC crowd really warmed to him. His dry wit was also greatly received. A bonus was the finale of 'Feed the World'. It was funny seeing Nik wearing a Santa's hat and jumping around like my 4 year old, something I would never expect Nik to do :-D but glad he did.
We hung around for a short while after the show and I was fortunate to meet Nik & Limahl for the first time. Nik was really nice and I was quite overwhelmed, I could not think of all the things I wanted to ask him...i got Nik Fright...
I managed to ask him things that you already know. He confirmed that the universal deal would definitely happen and that they would be taking over his website. There would be a tour at some point after it was all finalised. Sorry I could not find out more, to be honest I was not prepared for meeting him, as my pals wanted to see if they could catch Limahl..Well what a bonus that I got Nik'ed.
Like the rest of you, can't wait until he does his own tour and I would hope the 'Here & Now' tour has helped people remember that Nik is still around and very much still part of the Music Industry. The H & N tour programme does mention he is currently working on a new deal with Universal...fingers crossed hey.
