Patti Smith wows audience in an unforgettable performance

Punk legend, wordsmith and artist Patti Smith, met and indeed exceeded all expectations for her one-off show at the DLWP last Friday. With only one other UK show this year taking place in London, this performance had the added bonus of including music as well as her astounding poetry, and her appearance at our prized south coast venue is one that won't be forgetten.
You could hear a pin-drop during 'Wing' and her hair-raising vocals drifted across a spell-bound crowd for 'Ghost Dance'. For the encore she urged the crowd to stand up and come to the front, then blasted out 'People Have the Power' and unexpectedly ended with her classic version of 'Gloria', much to the pleasure of the crowd.
