Live: GEORGE EZRA // The SSE Arena, Wembley
You’ll be forgiven for thinking it’s summer as George Ezra takes the capital with his tropical tunes, sending a blast of fun that you can’t resist.
It’s always bound to be a good time at a George Ezra concert. His summer-infused tunes are made for dancing along to, and with his boyish grin, you can’t help but feel charmed by the pop star. Bringing along a band of brass players and grinning backing vocalists, the sparkling tones acted as the perfect accompaniment to George’s smooth baritone vocals, and you’ll feel all of your worries being melted away under the bright lights.
Intertwining story-telling between songs, he tells engaging anecdotes of staying at stranger’s house (with a particular stranger being called Tamara, explaining the name behind his latest album) and this only adds to his charm. With an electric guitar slung round his neck, his setlist contains a mix of material from both of his albums, appeasing to every fan no matter how long they’ve known George for. Between more tender moments in the form of Barcelona and Song 6, more energetic moments such as opener Don’t Matter Now and Get Away, it culminates in a confetti explosion for Shotgun and you’ll leave the arena full of positive vibes.
