Bastille

All together we share the sound.

waiting for what is to come.

Clapping hands and chanting loud,

now we know what has begun.

The cheering crowd stomp the floor,

the bass now banging at the walls.

Screaming now as he sings Flaws

and laughing while the drunk man falls.

The 1975 @ The Cockpit, Leeds/ 24.01.2013

So, the trip hop quartet were back (with special guests!) to perform once again at the grunge, underground venue, The Cockpit. As you all know, this place is dedicated to hand-picking the best bands out of the glimmering sea of new music, catching exciting new artists at the start of their careers. Yeah, it’s true, the stage has the faded footprints of the Two Door Cinema Club, Temper Trap and Coldplay to prove it. Over the last year, the UK have willingly welcomed The 1975’s mixed genre style with open arms after the release of not one, but TWO EP’s (Sex and Facedown) including ready-made anthems such as The City and Sex. They had already created a buzz around the country after touring the UK with guitar-heavy, cheerful Little Comets but this time it was different, they were back… but headlining.

I guess I should start from the beginning of…

Bruno Mars Concert Review.

Completing his magnificent tour in Manchester, Bruno Mars proves to the city that he is the new king of pop with his highly cheesy yet catchy songs!

The atmosphere of this concert wasn’t what you would expect a common pop concert to be like, with the screaming girls and the banners in the air. The concert edged more on the rock genre, with Bruno slamming on his guitar live, middle aged people sweating whilst jumping in the standing area. The crowd wasn’t full of kids, there was a variety of people which made it interesting. The whole arena was full of energy!

As his fans sing along with one of his calmest songs ‘Talking to the moon’ there is a sudden change in atmosphere as he begins to sing ‘Runaway Baby’ the crowd continue to belt it out, going wild as they do so! The volume in the building was crazy, it was clear to anyone that it was full of Bruno’s hooligans!

Bruno got the crowd going from the second he came on stage, explaining to us all that it was his last night on tour so we should all put our cameras away and have some ‘f***ing fun’ which made the whole crowd laugh, it was brilliant how he brought out his personality in front of such a huge crowd!

His well known songs for example billionaire, just the way you are and the lazy song really got the crowd going and everyone looked so happy, this concert made me realise how much music can affect your mood! You would expect to hear all the screaming girls however surprisingly, Bruno Mars also seems to have many male fans!

The whole evening was full of energy and fun, Bruno Mars satisfied his audience throughout the whole concert which I’ve never experienced before! I never wanted this gig to end!
His hit single ‘Just the Way You Are’ closed the wonderful night, it got everybody singing along and as embarrassing as it is to admit, it got me in tears! It showed everyone how talented he is and you could tell he put so much feeling into the whole night!

He received the chants of ‘ENCORE ENCORE’ by us all, where he performed a mash up of ‘Lighters’ and ‘Talking To The Moon’ the entire audience were pleased with this and the evening ended with everyone singing and dancing along!

A perfect evening, I will never forget it, came to school without a voice the next day. Looking forward to his next tour as his new album ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ will be released on the 10th December 2012!
