Charming! Alan Cumming at The Eccles Center (December 31, 2016)

Alan Cumming is truly a charming and professional performer.  His show feels like the audience is just sitting in his living room, listening to him sing songs with his friends. Alan says he was hesitant about doing a show like this because it made him so vulnerable, as he didn’t have a character to hide behind like in a theatrical production. Everyone was glad he came over this fear and put his heart into this show. Alan definitely made new fans and matched the goal tattooed on his arm: “Only Connect”.

Cumming is a fantastic story teller. He tells a great story about his former tattoo.  After being in a relationship for a wild two weeks, he and his boyfriend got tattoos of each other’s names near their crotch. After they broke up four months later, Alan considered changing his Raven tattoo to say craven or ravenous. But in the end, he decided to have it completely removed.  Alan met up with his wild ex recently and he had to ask about the tattoo. The ex-boyfriend changed it to say balance! “If I could bring a little bit of balance to Raven’s life, then it was all worth it!”

Cumming’s stories naturally blend into songs as he explains their personal meaning to him.  His amusing tale that leads up to the song Ecstasy which is about a Trojan condom commercial is quite funny!
