One of the best shows I've ever been to. I felt like I witnessed something truly special and memorable. It was my first time seeing Ben live and it was worth the wait. The passion and connection to the music really showed through in the performance. I can't wait for next time!! 💜

Big disappointment as an American as the entire concert focused on his new album. And not just that, it was very conceptual as well, not a party atmosphere. American fans only heard of him after he toured his first album, Every Kingdom, and made the documentary, From Austin to Boston, so this was the first chance to see him ever. Unfortunately, he only focused on the new music, and did no songs from Every Kingdom songs at all. That's not what I was hoping for and I'm sure there were others disappointed as well.

The Ben Howard concert should have been billed as the "whatever his new album name is" Experience. At least that way people would be known what they were in for, which was an entire concert focused on his new album. But not just focused on it, it was very conceptual as well, not a party atmosphere. Maybe if the concert had been seated and not standing, general admission, one might enjoy it more. I saw him do this at a festival in Belgium over the summer. And while this may have gone over with European fans, American fans only heard of him after he toured his first album, Every Kingdom, and made the documentary, From Austin to Boston, and this was the first chance to see him ever. However, even if you want to focus on the new music, the least he could have done was Every Kingdom songs for the encore. That's what I was hoping would be different from the festival. But somehow he managed to find 15 more minutes from the new album. How long is this album anyway??? Big turnoff to American fans as you can see from reviews from all the US shows.
Beautiful performance. Drove all the way from Virginia to see him and was not disappointed. I was close enough to see his facial expressions, where you could definitely tell how into his music this man gets while playing. Everything was very calculated and wonderful. ❤️

I really love the music Ben Howard and his band produce. It is beautiful. He is in my top 3 favourite artists. I have been excited for this show since I bought the tickets when it was announced. Although I wasn't feeling particularly well, I decided to go anyway. Ben also wasn't feeling well though. Didn't necessarily seem like he was sick, just maybe had a lot weighing on his mind. He acknowledged that from the stage. His engery was low. He tried his hardest in the state he was in. I think we at times forget that musicians are still humans and just because they're on tour doesn't mean everything is peachy the whole time. There are good times and bad. I still enjoyed myself, but I'm wishing to see him again when he's better.

Wish h played more singe from Every Kingdom and I forget where we where. I totally get that the point is to promote the new music but I was disappointed. I would not see Ben in concert again unless he was going to play all of his top hits
