The show flowed effortlessly, with a tsunami like consistency, without a costume change or a break. Katy B performed with the live band displaying a effortless strong vocal, the relaxed vibe and the three track throw back dedicated to the 90’s babies were highlights of the night, but when Katy performed what she described as “the most sexiest tracks on her album,” she truly shut the place down. Show casing her vocal range, ability and versatility. If Katy wanted to transition into dance music, r’n’b or jazz she would be able to do so authentically as her style and swag is distinctively London and consists of a variety of urban influences. The crowd bubbled and sang along to every song on the album and the ladies truly represented by over powering the guys in crowd noise competition hosted by Katy’s Hype Man. Katy really is raising the bar and representing by giving a memorable world class performance. This is how real artists perform with amazing raw talent, confidence, a willing to collaborate as well as the ability to write and arranging original songs. Highlights included the way in which Katy related to her audience and with an engaging live performances of Movement, On A Mission and Lights on featuring Ms Dynamite.
