The support act was Foxes who I hadn’t heard of before, but she was really good and there was an article in the Metro about her the next day so I learnt a bit more. This must have been a great showcase for her, lovely voice and very energetic performance.
Pharrell was sadly late, but absolutely well worth waiting for – he arrived on stage with his trademark hat and we loved him from then on. He was very close to those standing and a couple of times he jumped down from the stage to sing along with his fans, he also pulled people out of the audience to join him on stage, which I’m guessing they will dine out on for years!
I also loved the way that he was quite humble in saying that he couldn’t believe he was at The O2 as it was Brixton Academy last time he came here as a virtual unknown. He then turned the lights up several times so he could see the audience – that would have freaked a lot of people out to see how many people The O2 actually holds! Great stage presence and my friend, who had seen him at Wireless, said he had improved from how fantastic he was then to even more fantastic now! Obviously he sent us all home on a high as his last song was Happy!
Would you be Happy to see Pharrell live on stage too? Maybe you’ve seen another event at The O2 Arena in London you want to tell us about? Let us know by using the comments box below.
