Liza Minnelli still a dead-set legend

WOW! What a concert! We are splitting superlatives (but never infinitives) over the Liza Minnelli concert at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.
We had heard various reports on how her vocal chords were scratchy and that she couldn't cut it any longer.
Rubbish! She gave the concert of a lifetime.
Opening with the old standard Teach Me Tonight, Minnelli appeared nervous and perhaps all the critics were right, but after a couple of numbers and hearing our deafening applause she relaxed, became warm and engaging and sang her heart out.
This woman with the most impeccable bloodlines in show business may have lost a little of the spring in her step, but baby does she know how to put on a show.
Liza, with a Z, is still a dead-set legend.
