Last Friday night S and I went to review the Step’s concert in the CIA in Cardiff. I was an amazing night, not only was I surprised by really good customer service (the first time I have received the tickets without any problems!) but Steps and their 2 warm up bands were awesome.
A great party was had by everyone in Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena while watching Steps and their friends on Friday night.
Shockolady was the first act on stage and one of her highlights was a disco version of Bennie and the Jets, including disco light boots.
The next act was former Miss World, Kamaliya who entertained us with Ibiza inspired dance anthems. Not just a pretty face, Kamaliya knows how to present a song that makes you get up and dance. This she demonstrated to perfection on her new single Arrhythmia when she was joined on stage by 6 dancers that displayed athleticism gymnastics.
Then it was Steps turn to take the stage. Their opening act included A Deeper Shade of Blue closely followed by a Steps Dance section enabling the audience to learn new dance routines to old favourites Last Thing on My Mind and Better Best Forgotten.
All 5 members of Steps individually showcased their own voices in a solo section. Highlights included Lee’s performance of Moves like Jagger and H singing Don’t Stop Believing.
Steps were also supported on stage with 10 phenomenal dancers whose movements ranged from classic Steps disco pop to flamenco dancing and even dancing on roller skates!
Other Step-tacular highlights included When I Said Goodbye showcasing how strong their voices are and a Better the Devil You Know mash up with Judas by Lady Gaga.
The concert ended on a high with one of my favourite all time songs One for Sorrow followed by Steps new cover version of ABBA’s Dancing Queen and the BeeGee’s classic Tragedy.
