Concert Review: Estelle at the Commodore
I had been rather excited about the Estelle show at the Commodore for quite some time and last night didn't disappoint... well... not too much anyway. My biggest annoyance: the doors opened at 8, show didn't start until almost 11. We weren't keeners, getting there at 8, but we got there just after 9 and had to wait around for ages. Maybe I'm just getting old and can't stay up past my bedtime on a week night. Or perhaps if the opening act was more than just a couple of dj's, I wouldn't be so whiny.
But, c'est la vie, on to the actual concert. Estelle has the kind of voice that sounds like butter, melted butter. If butter had a sound, that is. It's so rich and smooth. I could listen to her sing for hours. Singing, mind you. I could barely understand a word she said when she spoke to the crowd and I'm usually quite good with British accents.
Estelle came with a full band, who we were inadvertently checking out in the crowd while we waited for the show to start. They were hot. Mmmm.... love hot chocolate. ;) They put on a lively show. Lots of energy. Loved the rendition of Coldplay's 'God Put a Smile on Your Face'. It was G.O.L.D. But was a little disappointed when she broke into her hit song 'American Boy'. It just wasn't the same without Kanye and she only sang a snippet. Oh well... the rest of her performance made up for that. We left before the encore - like I said, I was ready to turn into a pumpkin.
PS. Estelle's dress was hot. If anyone knows what she was wearing please let me know.
are you civilized?
