“It’s a great pleasure to be here. My pleasure is tinged with anxiety – like a young bride on her wedding night,” quipped Nick Lowe near the start of his show in The Egg’s Swyer Theatre. “I’ve been in this position so many times, but you still feel like you’re on the edge of the unknown…. There are so many things that can go wrong.”
But really, other than a microphone that needed adjusting to better accommodate his lanky frame, there was little wrong with Lowe’s Egg performance – the opening night of a solo tour in support of his latest album on Yep Roc Records, The Old Magic.
