Radio City Live Gig Review
Review by Jo Forrest.

THIS was my 1st time at Radio City Live and there was a definite party atmosphere going on. The audience was filled with families and fans young and old eagerly waiting for the show to start. Olly Murs was 1st up, the cheeky chap of pop who found fame on the X Factor and also co-presents it, when he was runner up in 2009, has seen his career go from strength to strength. The audience were soon on their feet dancing and singing along as he performed a few of his hits, finally finishing with his latest single:- "Kiss Me." 

Next up we had OMI, a Jamaican American singer who managed to keep the audience on their feet with his best known hit to date:- "Cheerleader."  Fleur East followed next with some impressive vocals, another runner up from the X Factor, who 1st competed on the show back in 2005 with a member of the girl group Addictiv before launching her solo career in 20142 and returning to X Factor in 2014.

Ben Heanow completed the trio of X Factor competitors for the evening and was the winner of the shows 11th season in 2014. The 30 year old had the audience singing all the words to his debut single:- "Second Hand Heart."  After a short break The Vamps were up next. This band who were found on Youtube have had a phenomenal success over the last couple of years. They have just released their second album and completed a world tour this year. They whipped the audience in to a frenzy, with pyros and singing 5 of their hits before finishing a sadly al to short set but not before reminding us all they will be back in Liverpool in April 2016. 

Next up were Sigma, who certainly kept the part going with a trio of their hits including:- "Glitterball", "Changing" and "Nobody to love."

Final band up for the night were Scouting for Girls, who delighted the audience with a few of their hits. I don't know whether it was an impromptu decision, but Roy Stride decided to run around the arena seeing how many high fives he could get. The audience was ecstatic as he lapped the floor with the security trying to keep up looking panic stricken.

Radio City put on a brilliant evening with a great line up, the audience was kept dancing and singing the whole night. If you haven't been to one of these shows yet, then you are definitely missing out on a fabulous fun filled night. Tickets are now on sale for 2016, make sure you get yours.
