The Enid at The Union Chapel, London - live review
Venue: The Union Chapel, London
Robert John Godfrey rejoins The Enid for his 70th birthday celebrations
Robert John Godfrey, diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2012, may have given up performing as a regular member of The Enid, but that doesn’t mean he’s retired. In fact, he’s here onstage, to share his 70th birthday with many of his fans – or “fellow travellers”, as he calls them.
Such is the love for The Enid mainstay, and his music of matchless symphonic beauty, that people have travelled from Japan, the Emirates, Turkey and Canada. The fact that it is also the farewell performance of drummer Dominic Tofield, the driving force behind this year’s album Resurgency, adds to the sense of occasion.
