Gig Review: CeeLo Green - The London Palladium ✭✭✭✭



Thursday 26th May - CeeLo Green arrives in London for his first night of his Love Train Tour Pt.2, with a couple of gigs here in the UK.

Kicking off the night were the support act MiC Lowry, a five-part vocal harmony group from Liverpool. What makes the performance extra special, is that the five of them are only accompanied with an acoustic guitar, which means you hear the raw vocal talents of each individual member. Each one of these guys has an outstanding and flawless sound and it is together where the magic happens, vocal arrangements that leave you in awe. MiC Lowry are definitely one to keep an eye out and if you get a chance to see them live you’ll know what I am talking about.

There is definitely something you can’t miss at this CeeLo Green concert, you certainly cannot define the crowd. People from all backgrounds and all age groups. Which certainly should be seen as a massive compliment to CeeLo in the sense that his music can touch all walks of life. 

Pretty much from the first song everyone was on their feet, the Palladium became more like a club, great energetic atmosphere. He belted out tunes 'Closet Freak', 'You The One', 'Bright Lights Bigger City'.

And of course everyone's favourites, 'Fuck You', which seems to be an anthem for quite a lot of people and Gnars Barkley song 'Crazy'. Throughout the night CeeLo also did a lot of covers, from Pussycat Dolls to Minnie Riperton's Lovin' You.

CeeLo clearly happy to be in London, took a moment to let the audience know that he really cared about being liked and knowing that people were still happy to hear him sing and listen to his music. He touched on the negative issues that have happened over the last few years to which he explained where the song came from 'CeeLo Green Sings The Blues'. He also spoke about someone who he a lot of love for and unfortunately aren't with us anymore, to which he sang the song 'Robin Williams'. 

All in all, a great fun evening, lots of energy, laughs and great music.
