Sade: International Centre, Harrogate

William Shaw, Smash Hits, 4 December 1985

SADE ADU may have a most entrancing set of vocal chords and a face to match, but somehow this evening never really got off the ground. Perhaps it was the audience's fault: Harrogate is famous for being the poshest place in the north of England and the people here did seem a particularly genteel bunch. A lot of furry animals must have died to keep some of them in coats, and they all look far too well behaved to show too much enthusiasm.
