Gipsy Kings get the Festival dancing

THERE was dancing in the aisles, the stands and even on passing boats when the Gipsy Kings headlined the Henley Festival last night [Saturday].

THERE was dancing in the aisles, the stands and even on passing boats when the Gipsy Kings headlined the Henley Festival last night [Saturday].

The group opened with their 1995 single A Ti A Ti then performed the fast instrumental Rumba Tech, in which each of the guitarists took turns to play solos.

The audience sat watching through the first two or three numbers as other people were still making their way to their seats.

However, they soon got into the spirit and were on their feet throughout the rest of the show.

There were massive cheers towards the end of the set when they played their 1987 hit Bamboleo and most in the crowd were singing along.

The band left the stage but returned for a two-song encore, finishing with their signature cover of Domenico Modugno's Volare.
