Live Review: Steve Earle live in Basingstoke
Venue: The Anvil, Basingstoke
Country singer-songwriter turns to the blues after divorce.
When Steve Earle toured here last year the hellhounds were on his trail after the breakdown of his seventh – and longest lasting – marriage, to Allison Moorer. They’re still at bay – at one point tonight Earle checks his watch to tell us he’s been clean for 21 years and one week (what kind of watch tells you that?) – skulking under his sardonic gaze.
