It was only a couple of months ago that we were shoe-horned into the Mountford Hall in Liverpool as singer-songwriter George Ezra played an intimate gig in the city as a precursor to this Arena tour. From that gig alone, we knew how special George Ezra was but, tonight, in the vastness of the First Direct Arena, the chart-topping star really stepped up to a new level as his voice and songs filled the Arena and left this sold-out crowd absolutely spellbound. Our photographer Graham Finney was lucky enough to find a space in the Arena and brought back a few photos of the show.

Check out George Ezra’s video for “Blame It On me:

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
