Lucinda Williams: Shepherds Bush Empire, London
Tim Cooper, The Independent, 15 November 2006
EVEN BY THE tardy timekeeping standards of rock'n'roll, 16 months is a little long to keep your audience waiting. Originally scheduled to play here in July 2005, Lucinda Williams pulled out with throat problems just days after the bombings of 7 July. But never mind. All is forgiven as soon as she sets foot on the stage to a heroine's welcome, all tight jeans and black leather, looking like the sexiest 53-year-old alive.
