You’re right DevonGreenOwl Phil Collins did a fantastic ‘drum-off’ during the Invisible Touch tour.
After the opening, he made a big show of hunting around the stage before picking up a crib sheet, unfolding it slowly, and reading very deliberately “Hola”. The crowd loved it.
On the other hand, all Tina Turner could do was very occasionally give a totally disinterested “ Alright”. Sting spoke to the audience in Spanish and did a couple of numbers in Spanish as well.

Oh I forgot The Pogues as well..... that started well enough but didn’t finish that well, as by the end of the concert they could hardly standup

Well, he was an actor before he ever played in bands! He played the Artful Dodger in the London stage show of Oliver when he was about 12 I think. I always hated the way that the Gallagher brothers in particular vilified him. It wasn’t his fault that he was so bloody popular in the 90’s! :cool:
