Burt Bacharach and Joss Stone, London, July

It's interesting that it would appear the two shows on July the 16th and 17th at Eventim Apollo, formerly known as Hammersmith Apollo, are being billed as 'Burt Bacharach and Joss Stone' rather than being promoted as Bacharach shows with Joss Stone merely as a special guest. Knowing Bacharach's present disenchantment with the recording industry, I suppose there's not much hope that by July they may have a joint venture to promote in the way of a new album.

Joss Stone singing 'In between the Heartaches' at the Royal Festival Hall a few years ago, the performance that very obviously impressed Bacharach and led to them performing together.

Despite the billing I can't imagine that the format of these two concerts will vary too much from when Joss Stone last performed with Bacharach in 2016, when she was introduced mid-way through what up to that point had been one of his standard shows, sang 9 or 10 of his songs with a lot of banter in between and then left the stage for Burt to continue till the end with the movie medley.

I have it on good authority that the band appreciates Ms. Stone's musicianship and think generally highly of her.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is.
