Artist: George Benson
Venue: Kallang Theatre
SINGAPORE - At age 70, American jazz icon George Benson wanted to prove that he's still sexy at his latest Singapore outing on Monday night.
Then, Benson - who last played here in 2010 as part of the Singapore Sun Festival - showed that he still had some serious swagger.
Throughout the 100-minute show, the 10-time Grammy winner gyrated, swivelled his hips and lavished the ladies in the audience with lots of attention.
For instance, when a female admirer shouted of her love for him in between songs, Benson responded cheekily: "I heard that, lady. And I love you, too. You're the reason I'm here."
What a smooth-talker.
The Pittsburgh native, who got his start in the 1960s as a jazz guitarist, was obviously having fun.
And he didn't shy away from acknowledging his age.
"I better slow down before I fall down," he quipped, after kicking off the show with a couple of rollicking instrumentals, including Weekend In L.A. (1978).
