Sade Brought Some Soul Back To The Montreal Bell Centre

Written by Patrick Rice on Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

June 30, Sade brought her soulful act to the Bell Centre.

By the time the floor opened up and elevated her to the main stage it was 9:30.

This night was mostly for lovers as couples made up for most other crowd.

I knew this was going to be a great show from the minute she sang her first notes of Soldier of Love.  Her voice was clear, powerful and there was never a distorted sound from her group. She spoke to the crowd a bit letting us know that she felt the love from Montreal, but that’s about all I heard as a scuffle ensued in the row ahead of mine…something about mixed up seats.

The stand out song for me was ‘Is it a Crime’, with the sax and bass player adding a bit more of a jazz tinge to the song than usual, sounded just perfect especially since we are now in the middle of the jazz fest.

Sade did not provide any out –of-this-world dance choreography or pyrotechnics that we’ve become accustomed to from other acts, just her sultry voice crooning her entire catalog for 2 hours was enough for us.

I hope we don’t have to wait another 10 years for her to return to Montreal.
