Last night Skepta sold out Ally Pally shutting the room down. He welcomed JME, Giggs, Kano and Lethal Bizzle to the stage. Skepta had previously said “I have been waiting for this moment” when talking about playing at Alexandra Palace. It was his biggest show to date, performing songs from his Mercury Music Prize Album ‘Konnichiwa’ and his well known ones. JME came on stage for ‘That’s Not Me’, Giggs for ‘Whippin Excursion’, Kano for ‘3 Wheels Up’ and Lethal B for ‘Pow’.
Skepta paused the set briefly to say: “Thank you very much to every last person in this building right now, this is mans ends, this is my ends. When I was younger I used to come here and ice skate; I used to come here back in the day and feed the ducks but today we’re here, sold out”. Before performing hit single ‘Shut Down’ he added; “I appreciate every last one of you in this building right now. I got a mad energy burning inside me right now because mans never been in Ally Pally when it’s shut down.” Ending the set, he said; “Today we put the fucking flag in the moon.” Skepta is getting better and better as time goes on and I am excited to see what happens next.
