Monday has never been my favourite day of the week (at least since Gossip Girl ended) but somehow Tiff and I have managed to make the past few of them fun!
First, we went to see Jack Whitehall, one of my favourite British comedians, at the O2 arena! It was absolutely amazing. Our seats were close to the stage (and cheap from this website), there were delicious lollipops, and he was HILARIOUS! I actually cried I was laughing so hard. It was the last night of his tour so he pulled out all the stops and was nothing less than spectacular.
Another Monday we went to the Royal Albert Hall for the Teenage Cancer Trust Concert Series. We saw Passenger and Ed Sheeran perform live for a terrific cause in a gorgeous venue!
Passenger had the voice of an angel! He was the sweetest person and singer I have ever seen perform live. I really only knew one of his songs (Let Her Go) before the concert but since then I have listened to his whole album so many times that I know all the words. Keep an eye out for his new album coming out soon!
Wow...just wow. I don't even know how to begin to describe the amount of work, effort, and love Ed Sheeran put into this performance. I mean...wow. I went in knowing a good amount of Ed's music and knew he would sound decent live, but he took it to a whole new level. At one point during the show he turned off all the music and microphones and just sang with his raw voice to all of us. How he did it...I will never know.
Also, he used a foot pedal thingy (I am very technical, I know). This allowed him to play certain parts and then could play them back later while singing another section. I am not explaining it well... it looked very complicated but sounded amazing!! You could just tell he was having the time of his life and at the same time put so much work into it to bring his fans the best music and experience possible.
