MANSFIELD, Mass. - Howard Jones performed on the same bill with Berlin and Boy George and Culture Club on the Letting It Go tour at the Xfinity Center.
The 80s pop hit sensation, Howard Jones, with his synth-pop music sound that was a staple of the 80s radio and MTV era, came right out on stage with a vibrant greeting to the audience, with a “Hello Mansfield… Hello Boston… and Hello all of Massachusetts”, and went right into his 1984 hit “Like To Get to Know You Well.” Following that Jones took a seat at his keyboard, and began with another familiar 80s classic, “Everlasting Love.” The conclusion of this song was met with swells of cheers from the audience. Jones sounded as great as he did on his studio albums, all the while he looked like he was having as much fun as the crowd was.

Introducing the next song, Jones said that this was his first single that was released forty years ago, “New Song.” Jones expressed his appreciation for everyone for sticking by him through all the years. Following up with “Life In One Day” which kept the crowd on their feet. Jones performed a cover of Kajagoogoo’s “Too Shy” before heading back into the Jones collection. The night continued on with “No One Is to Blame,” “Celebrate It Together” and “What Is Love”, which was met with a standing ovation. At age 68, Jones commanded the stage during his entire set, leading the audience through journey of his timeless music. But there was time for one more song to close out his set with, “Things Can Only Get Better.”
