Hands down one of the best gigs i've ever been to. I didn't think i could love Jordan and Harley anymore than i did prior to the show but behold, i absolutely bloody love 'em.
As the lights dimmed to reveal the boy's band made up of a drummer, a trumpet player, a guitarist and Jordan's dad as the bassist (how cool is he?) a musical interlude echoed around the venue. Waiting in anticipation, the crowd looked on eagerly to see the familiar snapback hats and slogan tee's that are often associated with the trend setting duo. Applause and cheers erupted as I began to wave my hands in the air like i just didn't care upon the sound of "RIZZLE KICKS" booming from the speakers as Jordan and Harley bounded onto the stage. Their energy fuelled entrance was immediately reciprocated within the crowd as everyone and their mother rapped along to Prophet (Better Watch It).
After performing a couple of songs from the album, the well known guitar riff of Ed Sheeran's hit You Need Me I Don't Need You resonated through the tightly packed audience as we tried our best to get closer to the boys. Using his confident stage presence to his advantage, Jordan got everyone to sing along to the chorus as Harley showed off his guitar playing ability. They made the song entirely their own by re-writing the lyrics and we loved it. Succeeding this energetic performance in which everyone needed a breather, the atmosphere relaxed as Rizzle Kicks sang out their latest single Travellers Chant and we swayed our arms in synchronisation. Far from breaking the lively mood, this more gentle approach to a song only proved to us how diverse the band's music is.
To the crowd's disappointment, Jordan then went on to announce that they were about to perform the last song of the evening. But this news was soon shunned as the crowd immediately began jiggling our arms to Mama Do The Hump. Although Jordan dancing and taking his top off may have encouraged me to scream that little bit louder. He so hot.
Wait, i know what you're thinking "What about Down With The Trumpets?". Well, after everybody stamped their feet and cheered "Rizzle Kicks! Rizzle Kicks!" for more, the show was closed with Stop With The Chatter and Down With The Trumpets. It was fantastic.
Show done, we then made our way outside to the tour bus, obviously not without buying a jumper that will most likely glued to my body for the next week or so, hoping to see my beautiful boys. Other than one of my friends throwing themselves at Kirk from TOWIE there wasn't much action on that front. After about twenty minutes of waiting and seeing the delivery of four pizzas, we decided it was time to go.
