Review

It has taken over 30 years for the orginal cherry bomb to finally reach Australian shores but man did she pack a payload when she finally did. Last night Melbourne witnessed an absolute masterclass in how to do a live show. Yes there was a hiccup during the night (a funny one at that) but we also got to see a show that we will all be talking about for a long time to come.

Cherie Currie, the former lead-singer of the notorious femme fatale rock group The Runaways, made no secret in interviews leading that she was looking forward to delivering Melbourne the show that they had been waiting decades for and she didn’t disappoint. Currie showed clearly that years of experience on the stage has made her one performer that all music fans must see at least once in their lifetime.

While so many artists like to just promote their new music and not perform the tracks from the past that the fans really want to hear… Currie was the opposite. She did throw in the odd new track (especially from her album Reverie) including the brilliant brand new track that she has written for a Suzie Quatro documentary that is currently being made here in Australia, but also revelled in the past. Currie was electric delivering pumped up, energetic renditions of Runaway classics including California Paradise, Queens Of Noise and of course the track everybody wanted to hear her sing… Cherry Bomb. While those three tracks were easily the highlights of the night they were easily matched by her brilliant covers of Nick Gilder’s Roxy Roller and David Bowie’s Rebel Rebel (which was part of her Bowie tribute).

Aside from thrilling the audience with her powerhouse show that made you forget that Currie is now 56 years old she also kept every entertained with some great antidotes between tracks and often had the audience laughing out loud… especially when she forget the lyrics to Listen To My Heartbeat and had to ask an audience member what they were. Was it staged or was it as she put it ‘something we all do when we are older… and you were all here to witness my f**k up’? We’ll probably never know but at least it added to the ‘human’ feel that Currie delivered throughout the show.

The one thing that we left the Corner knowing last night was that she might be 56 but Currie is certainly still the Queen of Noise.
