Grace Jones live in London 1980 by David Corio

Grace Jones by photographer David Corio, Drury Lane Theatre, London, October 1980

Photographers notes:  The ‘Nightclubbing’ LP had just come out and ‘Pull Up To The Bumper’ was being played on every dance floor. The show started with band members arriving onstage sequentially wearing Grace Jones masks. The crowd cheered everyone of them, each time believing Grace had arrived.  The quintessential disco diva finally appeared – dressed as a gorilla. She quickly changed into a masculine sharp suit, then a bronze Issey Miyake Plexiglas bustier that fitted like a second skin. Everyone was spellbound. This was one of the most memorable shows I have been to – dance rhythms mixed with a heavy reggae backing and Grace even played the accordion on one song ‘I've Seen That Face Before’. She was wonderful. At the end of the two-hour set she was overwhelmed with bouquets. She left the stage by scaling the PA stack and acrobatically climbing up into one of the private boxes.
