Rebecca Ferguson wows London Palladium crowd with soul-baring, spectacular show
Rebecca Ferguson's Superwoman Tour hit the London Palladium in the capital's West End last night (November 1).
The singer-songwriter's comeback was met with great roars of approval from the audience. As she made her stage entrance, dressed in a shimmering gold and black minidress and dramatic armless cape, the applause was deafening.
Rebecca sang tracks from three of her self-penned albums:
Songs from the latter included:
'Don't Want You Back'
Not many singers could get away with ditching their stiletto heels during their set and still look every inch a superstar, but then Rebecca is not like many singers.
Her witty banter in-between tracks, was a candid unveiling of what drove her to write certain songs. She revealed 'Stars' was about a crush, but joked: 'It only lasted all of two weeks, like most of my crushes.'
As she interacted with the audience, some of the concert-goers yelled: "I Love You!" and "Marry Me!" whilst others got up and danced vivaciously to her fearsome vocals.
When it came to introducing one of her songs, she admitted it was the most difficult to sing live because it's so emotional. In fact, she's only managed to perform it on tour once. The song was 'I'll Meet You There'. As Rebecca sang, her rendition was flawless, but her pain performing it became evident as she turned her back to the audience to hide her face and our attention was diverted instead by a young ballerina named Eleiyah Navis, who danced gracefully across the stage to the emotive lyrics.
Last month, Pressparty went through the 'Superwoman' tracklisting with Rebecca and she opened up about the track: "I can’t sing that song ['I'll Meet You There'], I won’t sing it. It’s too raw. It’s hard physically to get through, without being in a mess."
Towards the end of the set, Rebecca told the audience whilst smiling: “I want to say 'hi' to Sam. The X Factor are filming here tonight.”
The X Factor contestants in attendance were Matt Terry, Freddy Parker, Brooks Way, Gifty Louise and Simon Cowell’s protégée, Samantha Lavery.
The finalé consisted of Chaka Khan's 'I'm Every Woman,' which got everyone onto their feet, and the album's hit single, 'Bones'.
With four top 10 albums and a string of sold-out shows to her name, Rebecca Ferguson is currently enjoying a wave of much-deserved success, so it's not surprising that she decided to celebrate with family and friends at London’s Mahiki nightclub after the gig.
