Amazing Grace

I saw Grace Jones last year at the Sage in Gateshead and she changed her outfit after each song, chuntering to the audience offstage through her microphone. She had a different hat for each song, including one designed by Chris Levine that created a mirrorball effect when lasers were zapped towards it. At that moment the room exploded with blinding light. It was an extraordinary show.

Andy Warhol created the above image in his typical manner, which, despite its ubiquity, remains a startling and uplifting style.
