Popular English singer-songwriter Ben Howard brought his doting fan base to Leeds Academy on Wednesday, November 14th.
Leeds Academy was totally sold out. The room was tightly packed with mostly young teenage girls. As Howard entered the place, the piercing screeches from the crowd were almost overbearing. Engulfed in darkness, Howard took centre stage. Smoke filled the air and wrapped itself around him, as a protective shield. Throughout the set, Howard was enigmatic. He proceeded with “Burgh Island” then Under the Same Sun, flowing in to “Diamonds” without any interruptions of chat.
Howard has sold 130,000 copies of his debut album, Every Kingdom, which went to the Top 10 in the U.K. The set list this night included songs from Every Kingdom and his Burgh Island EP.
Great gig. Highly recommend. Crowd pleasers included “Only Love”.
