The foxy, Finnish, firecracker filled the Forum with a flurry of feisty fretwork on Friday night…...Phew!
Another awesome night from Erja on her quick return to Darlington; featuring several new songs from her new album, due Feb 3rd, as well as digging well into the back catalogue with her cover of Tina Turner’s Steamy Windows, putting the “B” back into “RnB”. Change of Seasons, with it’s bass solo, a highlight as ever, along with Lullaby leading into The Sky Is Crying, and Hand In Hand. All that, with her thunderous Spoonful opening the show and the Tequila party at the end and a haunting People Get Redy as encore.
Change in the backing band, Davide Floreno not on this tour; instead of 2nd guitar, Eja has brought along keyboards, on this night, Antti Ikola, who did a superb job with 9 fingers (and one splinted), as well as Juha Vernona on bass & Kai Jokaiho on drums making her powerful backing band.

When life gives you lemons; don't make lemonade.
Give back the lemons. Why were the lemons free? What's wrong with the lemons?
Do Not trust the lemons...
