On Air Manx Radio Breakfast Ben Hartley & Sian Cowper | 7:30am - 9:30am

China Crisis

Friday, September 3rd, 2021

7:30pm - 10:15pm
The Gaiety Theatre, Douglas

RS Promotions Presents: Liverpool Band CHINA CRISIS who are to perform their classic album “Flaunt the Imperfection” LIVE in its Entirety with their Full Band, alongside their greatest hits collection and fans favourite tracks.
Flaunt the Imperfection was the third China Crisis album for Virgin Records, released to international critical acclaim, selling more than a million copies worldwide and including hit singles “Black Man Ray” and “King in a Catholic Style” amongst its 10 tracks. The album was the first work (but not last) produced for the band by musical icon Walter Becker (Steely Dan) who became both a friend and collaborator as well as guide and mentor and whose recent passing makes these performances especially poignant for band and audience alike.

The founding duo behind China Crisis, Gary Daly and Eddie London, will be joined on stage by a stellar band of musicians hand-selected by them for these momentous performances; they all look forward to making Flaunt the Imperfection Live a very special evening for those attending.

The top 10 Album, released in 1985, lasts around 45 minutes, but with lead singer Gary Daly introducing each track with often hilarious anecdotes about the recording sessions and big-name producer Walter Becker of Steely Dan, you can add around another 30 minutes to the set. After a short interval, the band will perform a set of their greatest hits,
such as “Wishful Thinking”, “Arizona Sky”, “Christian”, “Tragedy and Mystery”, “Working with Fire and Steel”, and “Hanna Hanna”.
This Special One-Off Gig is not to be missed!
Around 2 Hours of China Crisis Greatness!
