Drake concert coming up on 1st april:
Following Drakes previous show in Manchester, he will be gracing our City again this April with the follow up. Definitely one to look forward to as the previous was night that will be long remembered by all that attended. Both Drake and J Cole (supporting) put on great performances with enough energy to power a small island. It was definitely one for the sing-a-long/ rap-a-long crew, with the audience reciting Drizzy's lyrics back-to-back.
The queue outside was the longest we have ever seen for a concert, there must've been at least a full mile of human traffic, and it was looking like the majority of of fans would not be catching Drake until the encore. The organization in the Apollo did well as it seemed everybody made it in on time before J Cole's performance.
Drake put on an amazing show, whereby the audience can feel they really got there monies worth! Thinking back it felt like he performed enough songs to fill two entire albums, as he didn't stop once for the full 90 minutes. All of the sing-a-long features were in there including What's My Name - Rihanna, Bedrock - Young Money etc, and the favorites from the Thank Me Later album such as Fireworks (ft Alicia Keys) which was accompanied by a surprising firework display, Light Up (ft Jay Z), Find Your Love, Over, Up All Night (ft Nicki Minaj) etc.
Drake made a real effort to interact with the crowd, and predictably paid special attention to the female fans in the audience!
All in all it was an incredible show, with his band really bringing the songs to life!
For a first international tour, Drizzy definitely has set the standard high, and we can envision his next one being in arena at least twice the size of the 02 Academy. The upcoming show in April is in a much larger venue, supporting artist are still unknown...this is going to be a big one, watch this space...eeek!
