George Ezra performed live for the third time in Toronto this year on April 20th at The Danforth Music Hall. Ezra opened for Sam Smith and Hozier prior to his own sold out headlining concert.
Throughout the show Ezra told many stories of what inspired his music and the places he has ventured to. The connection between the audience and performer was palpable and it made the night that much more special. The laughs and stories shared were a bonus to a night filled with great music.
The audience sang along to hits such as “Budapest” and “Barcelona” and was wowed when Ezra sang “Leaving It Up To You” as he nailed the high notes without his usual choir. The range and talent in the 21 years young artist was outstanding.
Ruen Brothers opened the show and played as if they were straight out of the sixties. Although it was a short set, they had an energy that was infectious. One of the highlights of their set was their cover of “Miss You” by The Rolling Stones. It was as if for a moment we were living in a different era.
Ezra has definitely created a name for himself in the city of Toronto over the past few months. As if three shows wasn’t enough we want more, make it four!
