Review: Miguel Live At The Forum, Plus The UK’s Daley

January 18, 2013 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

Last night was a great night for soul and rnb as American singer and songwriter Miguel took to The Forum stage in Camden, drawing his UK tour of Kaleidoscope Dream to a close.

Reminiscing with the crowd as he stated his appearance marked a year from when he first performed for the HMV Forum’s crowd, he went on to make a toast to all, wishing good prospects and achievements for the future, as he showed reaching those goals can sure become a reality.

Performing with as much passion, energy and emotion as you hear on his recorded tracks, some would even argue Miguel did more than bring the contents of his two albums (All I Want Is You and Kaleidoscope Dream) to the stage, but brought the songs to life, as he set the mood for songs such as ‘Candles In The Sun’, ‘Girls Like You’, ‘How Many Drinks?’ and later teased the crowd with ‘Adorn’ before giving the full version later on in the night.

From the personal and intimate times, to a switch up of upbeat, two stepping moments, the night was a great blend of a highly impressive discography from the star and just when you didn’t think it possible, he continued to up the vocals to a higher level, arguably sounding even better in person than he does on your digital copies or cd. Definitely an act worth seeing live.

Opening for Miguel was upcoming UK star Daley. Performing a mash up of his own material such as the singles ‘Remember Me’, ‘Alone Together’ and ‘Those Who Wait’, audience members also got to hear his range and creativity on the likes of Maxwell’s ‘Pretty Wings’, Frank Ocean’s ‘Thinkin’ Bout You’ and Usher’s ‘Climax’.

To find out more about his experience on tour with Miguel, 2013 prospects and the early steps of his career, you can catch our interview with the man himself in issue 12 of L’ART next month.
