Flooded with his supporters, fellow artists and even hosted by his own sister, Knucks’ first headline show was history in the making. Hoxton Bar’s secretive venue was the rendezvous for a night filled with good vibes, reloads and an unforgettable performance.
Gracing the stage to ‘Big Kahuna’, it seemed like Knucks was the ringleader and this indeed was his circus. With the crowd uttering every lyric, he could’ve sat down and made himself a cuppa if he really wanted to. But of course, the north west native grasped this made it feel like it was a family barbeque, with a sing a long, rather than a concert.
Performing bangers off of his new EP NRG105 such as ‘Gwen Stefani’, ‘Rice And Stew’ and ‘Wedding Rings’ (which all received wheel ups), he also surprised fans with special guests such as Oscar #Worldpeace and Wretch 32. Debuting the unheard ‘ShowFace’ featuring Miraa May, fans were already more than content. Cue the ultimate crowd favourite with a live saxophonist, ‘Vows’ drove the crowd into an absolute frenzy which ended the night on a high.
As his first headline show, it is highly evident that Knucks knows how to control a crowd so well you’d think this wasn’t his first. With the audience already knowing all the words to and EP you only released a week ago, it is clear that this gentleman is for sure destined for greatness.
