Review: Tinie Tempah, Civic Hall

Tinie Tempah was disturbing Wolverhampton last night where he started his tour.

The crowd was as loud as Tinie Tempah’s silver suit as the singer rocked Wolverhampton like an earthquake.

The rapper last night delivered the first of two shows at the Civic Hall and provided his 1,000-plus fans to a dazzling spectacle.

Opening with I’m a Lover Not a Fighter, he thrilled the crowd, sending fans into a frenzy.

Tinie stressed there was symbolical importance to his music, telling the audience before performing Wonderman of the need to ‘dream big and aim high’.

Album tracks from Demonstration follows and the pace quickens up. The intro music to Written in the Stars is then played. The screams are deafening, and out come the smartphones. The high energy that Tinie emits continues, with the songs Earthquake, Frisky and RIP.  Cleverly, he wins the adulation of the crowd by changing his hit Miami 2 Ibiza to Wolves to Ibiza.

For the finale he returns to the stage in his trademark red jacket to perform Pass Out, the song which put him on the world stage.
