On Thursday 17th January of this year, we officially experienced Miguel's KaleidoscopeDream (concert) a.k.a #KDExperience, at HMV Forum London. The queue outside tailed around the venue and on-to surrounding streets, anticipation was high for
27-year-old Miguel's second sell-out UK show.
The wait for the main man 'Miguel' was not long at all. The band was in full swing, the lights were going crazy, Miguel comes on, jumping, twirling and shoulder shaking...and then no sound comes out of the mic. The mic finally comes on but the badass performer that he is, say's 'okay, i'm gonna pretend i didn't see you and you're going to pretend you didn't see me...lets do this again, the lights turn off, Miguel disappears...the band start playing again, the lights go crazy and Miguel comes on just like nothing ever happened.
The show’s production was highly impressive – lazers shined into the crowd and the stage was covered in futuristic red light.
His vocals were exceptional, with his Prince-esque falsettos sounding particularly great. The band was tight, the energy was high and Miguel looked like he was having the time of his life on stage. However during the show Miguel slowed things down and proposed a toast "To each and everyone one of you pursuing something special" and continues (see below). This also explains why 'we as fans' can resonate with this talented man. Nothing beats the personnel touch!
The night climaxed with Adorn (his most successful single to date) as the audience took ownership of the song, over singing Miguel who jumped off the stage to embrace the roaring audience. He eventually returned to the stage pulling the notes from deep within as he jumped into the splits then left the stage. Undoubtedly Miguel is a great showman with an outstanding voice. He kept such amazing energy throughout the night. It has to be one of the best concerts i have ever been to!!
