Emeli Sande with support Calum Scott



On friday 21st October 2017, Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena was entertained by one of the UK's best selling artists of the past decade, Emeli Sande, and her incredible support act, Britain's Got Talent star Calum Scott.

The arena was full and the atmosphere electric. Britain's Got Talent alumni Calum Scott opened the show, with high energy, crisp & powerful vocals serenading Cardiff with some of his own tracks from his up coming debut album. A personal highlight being his next single "You Are The Reason" which was both emotional and captivating, alongside a surprise cover to Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud. Of course the crowds went wild as he thanked them for and quote "one of the best gigs I've ever done!" And continued to belt out the hit that started his career "Dancing On My Own". Calum is without a doubt an artist to watch out for over the coming years - raw talent.

Emeli Sande... one woman, one voice (not too discredit her amazing band and backing vocalists) and one amazing show that tore the roof off Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena! She didn't need any fancy costume changes or huge pyrotechnics, she simply sang her heart out, and genuinely loved every minute of gracing her stage.
Singing an eclectic mix of songs from her hit albums such as Hurts, My Kind Of Love & Heaven along with some surprises along the way including unique covers of Janis Joplin's Piece Of My Heart and Naughty Boy's Wonder!
A perfect middle section to the show saw Emeli even more stripped back and raw as she took to the centre of the arena and her B stage for an acoustic set. Here using pure emotion the arena sang along with her to ballads such as Clown, Read All About It and her duet with Labrynth "Beneath You're Beautiful" with some vocal help from her guitarist. This middle segment was a personal highlight and showed Emeli's distinctive, rich vocals at their best.
Rolling out hit after hit Emeli finished with high energy belting out the track Next To Me and new song Little Bit Longer as her encore. It's clear to see why Emeli is one of the best selling UK artists of the decade and without a doubt going to be entertaining us for quite some time ahead.
Cardiff loved you Emeli,
Diolch!

Many Man

Many Man
Written & Performed by Tobias Weatherburn  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Tobias Weatherburn triumphs in Spilt Milks production of Many Man, taking us on a rollercoaster of emotions as he explores the multiple personalities of a man searching for happiness by creating a new persona each time life fails him. Many Man is a journey of a man searching for the better version of himself and ultimately wanting just to be the man he was born to be. From the start we thought this one man show would be something of a comedy stand up. There was much laughter as Weatherburn described his characters life and got all philosophical on life in general and each time the character transforms himself into a completely different persona it's done so cleverly and with lots of humour. It's not until each persona fails and breaks down that we see the dark and tormented side to his complex character.  Weatherburn delivers impeccable comic timing and nails a number of accents which keep flipping the show fro…

The Addams Family | Wyburn and Wayne Cardiff Times

Frightfully Fabulous Family Time! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Cooler than the Kardashians, more twisted than the Trumps, The Addams Family have descended upon Cardiff Bay for twelve nights of music and mischief on their UK tour of the Hit musical.
Even before the show started I was in awe of the ghoulishly gothic and gorgeous set and then the lights dimmed, the fingers start snapping and the magic begins as the kookiest family of them all take to the stage. The Addams Family have graced our TV and cinema screens for over 50 years and this production has a perfectly cast ensemble to play the iconic death obsessed family that everyone loves. Les Dennis is fantastic as Uncle Fester, he has some great numbers in the show and his lovable character brings much giggles. Samantha Womack and Cameron Blakely are superb as Morticia & Gomez, they pay great tribute to every actor before them that played these roles possessing all the chemistry and charisma that made these parents the most devilish yet deliciou…
