I love going to gigs. I always have. I love playing and going to gigs. This week has been fun because I got tickets to see both George Ezra and Sam Smith.
The album Staying at Tamara’s was released two weeks ago and that’s pretty much the only album i’ve listened to since it was released. My favourite song off the record is the first song, Pretty Shining People. It always makes me smile. Haha! “Hey pretty smiling people!”
George played at 02 Academy Brixton. It was my first time going to this venue and my first time hearing George Ezra play. The sold out gig was supported by Lily Moore, a singer/songwriter from Brighton. It’s always great to hear a new artist and be introduced to their work. It was great to see live wind and string instruments on stage, and a guitar change after almost every song that was played. Loved it!
I was lucky enough to get my hands on tickets to see Sam Smith back in September at the Hackney Round Chapel. Unfortunately we weren’t allowed to take pictures but instead we got given a signed lyric poster of Too Good at Goodbyes. We got to hear brand new tracks that were about to be released on his album The Thrill Of It All, as well as some oldies too.
Sam played at The 02 Arena in Greenwich. I saw the first of four nights in London. He is such a great artist live. I loved the onstage band and the dramatic stage set. It really completed the show and I didn’t want it to end. We got to hear tracks from In The Lonely Hour and The Thrill Of It All, including Stay with Me, Writing’s On The Wall, Too Good At Goodbyes and Midnight Train.
I love going to see live music. It really brings tracks to life and I would probably say that I enjoy the music more after going to hear them live at a gig.
