I was lucky enough to get two tickets to see Emeli Sande last Monday (April 8th 2013) at The Hammersmith Apollo; for the UK leg of the 'Our Version Of Events Tour'.
I decided to take my mum, as she is just a big fan of Emeli Sande as I am. All week before the show I made sure to play the album once a day, so I could be singing each and every word in the audience. Yes, when I go to see a concert I'm often the one singing and dancing along. I was happily joined by others on the sidelines. I did spot a few artists too such as Ny Official.
Emeli performed all the songs from her album as well as two new songs from her upcoming project. AMAZING! One for her now husband and the other a great inspired by Emeli's life encounters. My favourite being 'Breaking the Law'- which she mentioned was for her sister, Lucy.
Supporting Emeli Sande on the London leg of the tour were acts Sam Smith and Jacob Banks. Both ones to watch. Jacob Banks performed on the April 8th (the night I went) and Sam Smith on the April 9th. How epic Jacob Bank's was. He performed tracks from his free EP 'The Monologue'; 'Rainy Day' , 'Dear Simone'- love at first hear!! To open the show we had an artist named Mahalia she was great a refreshing, she performed tracks from her free EP 'Head Space'; 'No Escape', 'Head Space', & 'Let The World See The Light'.
I Look forward to hearing more music from Emeli Sande, as she is working on her second album. Exciting! 2012 was really Emeli's year winning Brit Awards and being the figure for the 2012 Olympic Ceremonies.
Emeli Sande's special edition of 'Our Version of Events' is out NOW:
