Mon 1 Nov – Imogen Heap

She opened with my favourite of her songs, The Walk, and I wasn't impressed straight away. I think it was a combination of the fact that I absolutely love the recorded version, plus I think she was still getting in to her stride (in her defence, she had only just woken up, having spent all night and day working on her score).

But she soon had me absolutely enthralled, and I found myself falling in love with tracks I usually skip. And with her.

She is incredibly funny and likeable, telling low key stories between songs and bopping around the stage all the time. She even got us engaged in a singalong, which gets my vote every time. She was very giving as an artist, and based her set list on songs selected by the fans on her website (plus a few of her own favourites).

Highlights for me were Aha and Say Goodnight And Go. The vocals on Headlock, for me, got pretty lost among the backing, but I have to say she has some amazing musicians on stage with her, and the staging was beautiful and eclectic.

All in all, I had a great time. I was curious to discover how her songs would hear live - considering that they are highly produced and usually pretty high pitched! But she totally delivered. I loved it!
