Since releasing his debut EP in 2018, Yungblud has gone off the rails garnering a fanbase of millions while still retaining a cheeky yet modest personality that makes him all the more lovable as an artist. With many delays, this young star has finally been able to go ahead with his planned Kentish Town tour announced long ago in 2019.
The queues were around the block for this experience, with plenty spending their entire day lined up just to be front row for a night to remember. As one of the first real shows to commence since the slight lifting of regulations in the UK, the crowd were half masked up with their free 'Fleabag' masks and ready to get back to enjoying the thundering bass as he once again hit the stage.
This naturally born performer was nothing but a ball of energy, dancing across the stage and commandeering the crowd like he hadn't even been away for a minute. Gracing thousands with a setlist of older and newer releases, alongside a cover of Machine Gun Kelly's 'I Think I'm Okay' that he partially featured in, Yungblud reminded everyone of how much his older songs can raise the roof alongside the new tracks that only kept it elevated further. Everyone had lifted spirits and lost voices after screaming and jumping, savoring every moment of this show that had been desperately missed. If these Kentish Town shows were anything to go by, we're sure the rest of Yungblud's tours will be just as exhilarating.
