View Full Version : Grace Jones a possibility?

It looks like she'll be done with her UK/Europe tour at the end of March:

Do we think there's a chance? She's a legend... in certain circles. And we know that men of a certain persuasion would be all over this plus I think she has pretty broad appeal in the Coachella scene.

And she's bigger in the UK than she is here; that always seems to have some sort of strange appeal to the indie/alt scene. You can see from these recent Later with Jools Holland performances that she's still got 'it'! I can't believe this woman is over 60!

Williams' Blood:

Slave to the Rhythm:

Love You to Life:

not that i know of, but Grace Potter (and the Nocturnals) will be there...

Grace Slick would be cool too!

Makes so much sense ! For so many different reasons.

Grace Jones ain't my thing, but I want to commend you for the fact that this post isn't a weak attempt to be funny.

I would watch just to hear demolition man...

I would say yes only if the Governator showed up and they reenacted a scene from Conan the Destroyer. Too bad Wilt is dead.

She's brilliant. I hope so.

Sorry, folks, I should have used the search function before starting a new Grace Jones thread. At least I didn't start a new Bowie thread.... right?

I'm holding out hope on Grace; I think it's a real possibility.

She must do "I Need a Man" if she plays.

I'd be a happy camper if I got Slave to the Rhythm, Nightclubbing, My Jamaican Guy, La Vie En Rose, Pull Up to the Bumper and Williams' Blood. She can sing the phonebook after that.

This would be huge. My cousin just saw her in the UK and said she's never been better. Don't fuck this one up, GV!

Grace Jones would AMAZING! I saw her once in LA years ago and she was incredible. Reviews I've read of her recent performances have been solid. And hey she even has Wendy & Lisa on her new album. W&L: "Is the water warm enough, Grace?" GJ: "Just get the hell in!"
