10cc at the Paladium, London - live review

Live Review

Venue: Paladium, London

Boisterous set of all the hits from Stockport proggers

The Greatest Hits And More tour from 10cc climaxes at a venue whose history is almost as rich as their own. Among the faultless choices of non-hits is Old Wild Men, a forlorn ballad from 1974’s Sheet Music. They introduce it with a wry smile: the song’s a melancholy musing on a band who won’t pack it in, no matter how aged they get. “They’ll play and play to pass the time…” Yet with art rock royalty 10cc there’s always a witty self-awareness involved, and their energy and verve makes a mockery of mortality. To hear this brilliant, boisterous set list is to be filled to the brim with jumping jacks and joie de vivre.
