After reading Patti Smith’s Just Kids, the profound portrait of her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe, I’m eager to see Smith in person (with her son) for the first time. Of her last show the Guardian said, “a standing ovation ends an insightful, surprising and very entertaining glimpse into a true artist’s heart”.
From the Cadogan: “Patti Smith ranks among the most influential female rock and rollers of all time. Ambitious and unconventional she has been listed amongst TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world as well as one of Rolling Stone’s 100 greatest artists.
An evening of words and music will see Patti charm as much as challenge, dignified during her readings, but primal in her rock performance. 35 years of transcending artistry landscapes alongside long term collaborator Tony Shanahan and son Jackson Smith, prepare for an evening of seeing a true artist, poet, revolutionary and musician.”
