I attended my first music concert of a popular musician, Imelda May, thanks to Mr M 😉 She is an Irish Musician and I absolutely adore and love her style of music. The performance was in London Palladium. It is a compact theatre. I loved the acoustics there.
The performance was opened by Jack Lukeman, who delivered a very powerful and entertaining performance from his latest album, Magic Days. The highlight was his King of Soho song. The audience got all warmed up by his songs and imagine the whole theatre singing the chorus for that song.
By the time Imelda May came to stage we were all revved up. She started her set with her song Call Me from here latest album and slowly and steadily the tempo started to rise. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to her perform live. I love her voice even more now that I know how she sounds on stage. There were quite a good variety, rock, pop, jazz, soul, etc…and she carried it all with elan. The whole band was a delight to watch. They had such a lovely synchronisation. There were also some titbits of information about the songs. And she was very cute and shy when audiences called out how much they love her. A true artist.
I wouldn’t mind going again to her performance. An absolute delight she was. And that this was my birthday gift makes it even more special. 😉 Thank you Mr M.
