Miguel Live performance at HMV Forum | Miguel Live gig

Miguel Concert first performance

On Monday night, US R&B star Miguel took to the stage at North London’s Kentish Town Forum much to the delight of the mostly female capacity crowd. Before he emerged, a strong lineup of homegrown supporting acts all had their own chances to shine, warming up the crowd with performances of varying quality. The queue outside tailed around the venue and onto surrounding streets, and anticipation was high for 26-year-old Miguel’s first UK show.

Hot new talent Kaleem Taylor was the first of the support acts to hit the stage, delivering a solid performance, with room to grow. Jermaine Riley and Britain’s Got Talent finalists New Bounce followed, after which there was a short wait until Cleo Sol made an entrance, looking genuinely stunning in an eye-catching dress. The “High” singer ran through a handful of songs with her live band, vocals on-point as always.
