Grace Jones

Conceived by U.K. couture superstar Philip Treacy - [the concert] will be a spectacular union of fashion and rock. Miss Jones will wear costumes by designers Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier and Alexander McQueen while performing the classic songs that have made her an international icon.
Renowned clotheshorse, occasional actress and disco diva Grace Jones will play a rare show at Roseland on October 27, her only current tour date. Tickets go on presale with a password of "JOSHWOOD" on Monday, September 10 at 10AM, with regular sale hitting the next day (9/11) at noon.

I don't know what era you're living in "Anonymous", but the last time she played NYC, she hit the stage at exactly the time announced and sang LIVE for nearly two straight hours. she's smart enough to realize her now-mature audience doesn't disco until dawn any more.

and, she was BRILLIANT. bitch can swat Madonna and that Caca person away with a pinky flick and the stage show isn't likely to be some overblown Vegas-style extravaganza either. it's as it should be, Grace, her voice and FABULOUS costumes!

Naked on stage at Hammerstein at age of 64, what a body!

the unique sugaring gel is all-natural, consisting of only sugar, lemon juice, glycerin & water. it looks like honey! (natural ingredients mean natural reactions, which for most is no reaction at all!)
