I've been very busy recently, what with college, college work, work but most importantly on Wednesday 28th November, I was lucky enough to see Ben Howard in concert at the O2 Brixton Academy.
I began listening to Ben earlier in the year after downloading his 'Every Kingdom' album on a whim. Since then, I always have time to listen to his relaxed and chilled acoustic songs. I then bought the tickets for the concert a couple of weeks before the gig whilst my boyfriend was on holiday in Poland. I had to phone him to let him know there were still tickets available. I bought them straight away as he was up for going too!
I tried to find out who would be supporting Ben Howard on his tour but it was quite difficult to find and I had to go by who was supporting him a few months back and hope for the best. Luckily, Willy Mason was supporting him on this tour. However, I had listened to him briefly before the gig in order to see how he sounded. To be truthful, I was over keen BUT after seeing him my view completely turned around and I now still have his songs on repeat in my head. The talent of both acts was incredible and I definitely wouldn't mind seeing either acts again in the future.
I would love to see Ben Howard perform at a festival as I believe that the atmosphere there would be something I would love to experience. Anything to sing the 'Love, love, love' lines back to him again during 'The Wolves'.
