Gig Review and Pictures: Beverley Knight @ iTunes Festival – 25.07.09


Beverley Knight border

Wow!  A quick word on Beverley Knight last night… amazing.  If I am completely honest, I have never been the biggest Beverley Knight fan.  Yes I loved the old skool tracks; Flava of the Old School, Mutual Feeling, Moving On Up, and I fully respected her as a pioneering artists for the UK Soul scene. Her more recent music has been nice, however in my opinion nothing to get over excited about… just consistently good.

Went to yesterday’s gig just expecting a nice night out and a few sing-a-long moments.  What I got was totally unexpected… a powerful, emotional, and energetic performance.  Beverley Knight has a career that spans over two decades and five studio albums, and this experience was clearly on show at the Roundhouse.  She drove through all her greatest hits in an outstanding manner with many spine-tingling moments… damn, she nearly moved me to tears at one point.  A totally unexpected pleasure and she has definately raised the bar!

If you get the opportunity to see Beverley Knight, do not think twice about buying tickets!  Before last night I would never have gone out of my way to see her… now I cannot wait til her next show (and feel a bit stupid for fronting on her for so long) because after missing two decades of shows, I got a lot of catching up to do.  Outstanding!
