Nessa Barrett dazzles at her first ever UK headline show


American singer-songwriter Nessa Barrett brought her debut album young forever to London for her first ever UK headline show on Tuesday night. The show was the first of two sold-out nights at Heaven nightclub and the packed crowd could not contain their excitement to see Nessa take to the stage.

Opening the night was producer and singer-songwriter Daniel Briskin, who is known professionally as briskin. Taking to the stage alongside his 2-piece band briskin performed a bunch of his tracks including “In The Middle” and his latest single “Chemicals”.

As light faded and Nessa’s guitarist and drummer took to the stage the audience erupted in screams and began chanting ‘NESSA’. The LED screen began flashing with a cross as the talented 20-year-old walked onto the stage. She kicked off with her dark-pop track “madhouse”, as she worked her way around the stage to greet her adoring fans. Following on from this Nessa went on to perform “talk to myself” and “too hot to cry”, which really showcased the singers strong vocals. The singer went on to perform her enchanting song “god’s favourite”, which has the entire venue captivated. Nessa spent lots of time interacting with her dedicated fans, including collecting gifted cowboy hats from the fans. The majority of the set list was from her 2022 album young forever including “dear god”, “tired of california” and gaslight”.

Last month the singer released unapologetic track “american jesus”, which she debuted on the US leg of the tour, and the track delves into feelings of longing and desire. Barrett also performed the heartbreaking track “noose”, a song which fans do not often get the opportunity to hear live and had the entire audience in a trace. To close such a special night she performed “die first”, another of her latest singles “BANG BANG!” and of course “i hope ur miserable until your dead”. The singer danced around the stage with euphoria as the confetti canons went off and the venue filled with white confetti, it was a perfect way to end her first headline show in the UK. We certainly can’t wait to continue to watch and support Nessa Barrett as her career continues to blossom.
