Hey guys! So last week, I was lucky enough to see Emeli Sande in concert. I’m not a particular fan of hers but I do like a lot of her music so I thought it would be a fun experience and it definitely was. She had such a beautiful, unique voice and she had great stage presence. I really enjoyed her mixture of soulful ballads and upbeat hits and it was nice for a change to not walk into a concert knowing every single lyric of every single song. I was introduced to some new music of Emeli’s that I’d not previously listened to and I had an awesome time overall. So in today’s post, I’m going to be revealing all the details from the Hull Emeli Sande concert.
This Emeli Sande tour focused on the songs from her new album ‘Real Life’ and her chart topping past hits. I’d heard quite a lot of her older songs such as ‘Read all about it’, ‘Clown’, ‘My kind of love’, ‘Breathing underwater’ and ‘Heaven’ but the first time I’d ever heard pretty much all of her new songs was in this concert. It was pretty crazy to hear some of the older songs live since I can remember loving them and singing along to them when I was younger. I’ve always loved ‘Read all about it’ because of the strong message it portrays. It’s so important to use your voice to express yourself and to never be forced to be someone you’re not because you are uniquely you and there is nobody else in the whole world like you.
I loved listening to the newer songs too and there are definitely some that stuck with me. I connected with ‘Same Old Feeling’ because I think there’s always one person you always feel the same around and always like no matter how long it’s been and I have definitely experienced that before. ‘Human’ really resonated with me too because I feel like it perfectly summed up what it is to be human. We’re all different and we all have ups and downs but we just have to keep moving despite what life throws at us. I loved that Emeli played the piano whilst singing some of her songs because I think it’s such a good instrument to portray emotion through and I feel that it’s an under represented instrument in the music industry as I’ve seen very few artists actually utilise it in concerts.
Emeli herself seemed very grateful and humble and thanked her fans and the band who was playing with her in the concert. She explained some of the backstories of her songs and gave an important message before she sang ‘Read all about it’. She said we need to stick together and look after each other no matter the circumstances and use our voices to speak out and express ourselves in a positive way. The vibe at her concert was such a good one and I really enjoyed myself overall.
Thank you for reading this post! Have you been to a concert recently? Let me know in the comments! There’ll be another post out soon but until then bye for now!
