A wonderful homecoming gig

Rizzle Kicks, Brighton Centre, December 6

I HAD seen Rizzle Kicks earlier in the year at the Brighton Dome but seeing them again reminded me how great their debut album Stereo Typical is.

Again the boys had three support acts – Running Dogs, Little Nikki and Mikill Pane. Little Nikki is the best support act I have seen in a very long time.

The album, Stereo Typical, provided most of the songs for the evening. Their hits When I Was a Youngster, Even on a Rainy Day, Travellers Chant, Down with the Trumpets and Mamma Do the Hump were performed.

Mikill Pane also came on stage to perform his song, Work, which features the duo.

The very popular Ed Sheeran’s song You Need Me, I Don’t Need You, was performed with Harley playing the guitar.

Mamma Do the Hump was the last song of the set, which had the whole audience doing the dance that goes with the track.

The lads went off the stage and Jordan came back on wearing a rather fetching orange and blue onesie for the encore. Dreamers and Down with the Trumpets were the final tracks.

The Brighton boys have become so popular that a night had to be added at the Brighton Centre. This was a fabulous homecoming for Rizzle Kicks and they seemed to have loved every minute of it.
