Paloma Faith brought her tour to Glasgow's own SEC Armadillo and although the venue is a seated one, she soon encouraged viewers and fans to stand up in their seated spaces and dance as much as they wanted, without upsetting anyone around them. She seemed slightly nervous at the start of her set and had some unfortunate issues with lighting but after getting her vocal chords warmed up she was dancing around the stage in her leather dress and giving us a reason to have come out to see the show. Showing us how to be a rockstar mother with a six month old sleeping backstage.
Paloma brought her iconic song "Crybaby" to us and that was when the crowd really started to get into it. I would like to think that everyone in the venue had started to sing at that point, masks or no masks. Her crowd engagement was another reason many came to see her, from fans dressed in glad rags and drag to those who were sporting her merch t-shirts, she made sure to smile and wave all around the room so that everyone felt welcome.
She followed on with acoustic songs such as: "Stone Cold Sober", "30 Minute Love Affair" and "Stargazer" which she mentioned was a tribute to the late Prince. The pace picked back up with "Angels Watching Over Me" and "Picking Up The Pieces" which were two crowd favourites as even more people started to stand up to dance, and even filled out into the isles between rows. At one point I am pretty sure security was trying to tell them to go back to their seats but if Paloma says dance, they dance.
Unfortunately, it looked like she had to postpone the next day of her tour due to catching the same infection her little one had but I am sure she will be back and performing on stage in no time.
