After ten weeks of live-streaming gigs on Instagram to keep the nation’s spirits lifted, Sophie Ellis-Bextor has now closed her Kitchen Disco.
Sophie has always been a generous sort. Former staff at the Middlesbrough branch of HMV remember the time she once popped in to browse records when she was in town for a gig. The manager asked if she wouldn’t mind nipping into the stock room to sign a few copies of her CD, which she cheerfully did, but put down her shopping and forgot to pick it back up when she left.
A few hours later, Sophie’s aide returned to collect the bag and gave all the staff free tickets to her concert the next night as thanks for looking after it. Even though they’d been going through her shopping and playing with all the skimpy knickers she’d bought.
