I never got round to posting about the London show. She was sensational, vocally impeccable (I think it was all live vocals?), fully living her popstar fantasy. A relatively simple stage/production which they used very effectively, budget might not have been huge for this tour but her sheer talent completely made up for it.
My favourite thing was seeing her beam with joy at the crowd's reaction to the 'put your hands up' part of Bad Friend. I mean going from a cute fake crowd effect in your song to seeing it play out in real life to a sold out Brixton Academy must have felt fucking amazing.
Speaking of the crowd, this was probably my favourite audience at a concert ever, they were fantastic before, throughout and after the show. Such a positive energy in the air which helped make the heat more tolerable. The This Hell sing-off was iconic!
A very touching speech introducing Send My Love To John where she practically told us she *is* our mother almost brought me to tears.
What a night!
