Live Review: Aitch at the O2 Academy Leicester

A Friday night in Leicester and upcoming Manchester rapper, Aitch is making an appearance. As part of his Aitch2O tour, he visited the O2 Academy Leicester and the show sold out. I've seen him all over my friends Instagram and Snapchat stories, most of my friends can't get enough of him.

It's not taken long for this 19-year-old to break into the UK music scene, he's already worked with the likes of Stormzy, Ed Sheeran and Wiley. I had the chance to see him at his Leicester show and find out why he's been propelled into fame over the past year or so.

When I arrived, the line was one of the longest I've ever seen - and I'm even talking about arena queues. Everyone seemed buzzed and couldn't wait to get in. As I walked in, the support acts were in full swing, performing and playing absolute tunes that everybody couldn't get enough of. Everyone even sang along to All I Want For Christmas Is You, because who can't help themselves but sing along with Mariah Carey when she's playing?

The place was absolutely rammed but surprisingly, in comparison to some of the other shows I've been to at this venue, the crowd weren't as daring but still, they carried a hell of a lot of energy. A mosh pit happened on multiple occasions and the crowd tried to get Aitch involved but he knew better than to get involved with the Leicester crowd.

With no break between the support and Aitch, you definitely got an evening worth the money. Every person in the venue was looking forward to Aitch. He didn't disappoint anyone. Performing his hit songs Taste (Make It Shake), Keisha & Becky, Buss Down and Strike A Pose, the crowd absolutely loved him. He even performed Take Me Back To London which he featured in the remix of.

During Taste (Make it Shake) he turned off all the lights in the venue and used only people's flashlights on their phones to light the stage. It was a phenomenal performance to watch.

Not only was he animated on stage but Aitch made sure to interact with the crowd as much as possible, remembering his fans names, in awe at those who had his lyrics tattooed and even sang Happy Birthday to a girl who's birthday it was. He seemed to love the moment when a fan threw their underwear on stage too! I've not seen someone so invested in their fans for a long time.

With him rising to fame and definitely one to watch out for in 2020, I'm glad that I got to see him in a smaller venue before he hits the arenas. If you're a fan of grime and rap music, you do not want to miss out on seeing Aitch live.

Until next time...
