Talented British singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone brought her Deep End Tour to London on Friday night and the atmosphere in the venue was truly euphoric. O2 Academy Brixton was filled to the brim for the sold-out show and when Holly took to the stage the audience made sure to let Holly know how loved she was. This was Holly’s largest headline show to date, following on from her show at O2 Forum Kentish Town earlier this year.
Humberstone and her 3-piece band put on a phenomenal performance from beginning to end, and the audience was truly in awe. She kicked off her set with two fan favourites “The Walls Are Way Too Thin” and “Vanilla”, which had the entire audience singing the lyrics back to her. Holly then went on to slow down the night with her heartbreaking track “London Is Lonely”, a song which debuted at her London show last year. Holly invited each of her support acts to join her on stage for special renditions of two of her tracks. Benjamin Francis Leftwich joined her for a lovely version of the song “Friendly Fire” and Adam Melchior joined her for an enchanting performance of “Deep End”. The setlist for the night included many songs from Holly’s latest album Can You Afford To Lose Me? including lead single “Can You Afford To Lose Me?”, “Overkill” and “Please Don’t Leave Just Yet”. To close the magical night the talented musician performed three of her most loved song to date, “Falling Asleep At The Wheel”, “Sleep Tight” and of course “Scarlett”. The audience went crazy one last time by dancing and singing enthusiastically to the singer, it was a beautiful way to end such a great night.
