Rudimental performed what looked like a returning show on O2 Arena on 3 March. The band started their first UK tour promoting their second album “We the Generation”. Main single “Never Let You Go” – which is a kind of a slow starter – emerges into a common, up-beat Rudimental chorus that the audience was thrilled to meet.
Not many might know that Rudimental in fact co-wrote Ed Sheeran’s track Bloodstream, and their live version – even though not featuring Ed Sheeran himself – did not spoiled the happy atmosphere; the East London musicians’ endless energy was just enough to keep the crowd tuned during their live show.
The band’s stage performance could spot the more popular music artists who have been appearing on the stage much longer than these quite new boys, and this is all supported by a number of professional vocalists and skilled band members all being on that stage.
For the first, time Rudimental performed on the scene in 2012 with their debut album “Home”. Ever since, the British electronic band has collaborated with such popular stars as Emeli Sande, Foxes and Becky Hill, promoting drum and bass into the popular charts. The band has gained main popularity after the release of “Feel The Love” single, which was the number 1 in the UK charts with its powerful vocals from John Newman.
Rudimental has ended the show with the anthemic “Waiting All Night” single, probably the best way to finish the performance to over 20,000 exultant audience. Fireworks, confetti and the gleeful echo of sing-a-longs as band left the scene demonstrated that these four boys have a large fan club, most of all when they realized to sell out all the tickets across the UK within a short period of time.
