Peter Andre announced his comeback last Wednesday night at Under The Bridge, launching his tenth album ‘Big Night’ with an exclusive performance to a crowd of press, 100 lucky fans and celebrity guests that included TOWIE’s Amy Childs, Uri Geller, Linda Barker, and former X-Factor Contestant Sam Callahan.
Backed by a full live band, a suited and booted Andre worked his way through the pick of ‘Big Night’. Set opener ‘Kid’ revealed the extent of Andre’s departure from his pop roots, his sound now a mixture of big band, jazz and classic soul, before launching into ‘New Orleans’, a nod to his trip to The Big Easy that inspired the change in musical direction. ‘Preach’ and new single ‘Big Night’ followed, before wrapping things up with ‘Just a Jam’ and ‘Would you Mind’, the latter descending into a joyous extended jam between Andre, his backing singers and the band. Andre left the stage to rapturous applause, beaming smiles all round, and no doubt some tired dancing feet.
