Rated 5 out of 5 by Kenoo from Tickling the grey Tickling the grey John Grant kicks off his concert at the Octagon Sheffield striding on stage arms raised in the air and welcoming the crowd. He has a curious way of making you feel that he is personally addressing you as he looks out over the audience. A few songs later he opens up to people saying how happy he is to be back in Sheffield the 'centre of the universe', home to the likes of Cabaret Voltaire, the Human League, ABC and Heaven 17. I'm not that familiar with John Grant's music; I don't know the lyrics off by heart unlike most of this audience. As the evening progresses it becomes apparent that this is to be an intimate and painfully honest insight into Mr Grant's life. Love is the common theme; when heckled by a few of the more vocal people in the audience John retorts 'All I know is that I love you'. A point raised more than once over the course of the evening. This Sheffield crowd obviously love John to bits, shouting out to him between numbers. Although at times their comments are met by his uncomprehending bemusement. 'Ay up love' he says to the delight of this South Yorkshire audience. As the night progresses John loosens up; his initial stiffness and reserve melting away as he dances in silhouette and focuses his attention on his fellow band members, forgetting the audience for a moment. The highlight comes with Sheffield's own Richard Hawley joining the band on stage midway for a couple of numbers. But what about the music? The stand out moment was no doubt the band's thumping rendition of Queen of Denmark. I love the pomp and symphonic grandness of Glacier, the 80's electropop rhythms of Pale Green Ghost and You Don't Have To, the Numanesque synth opening of Voodoo Doll, and the poignancy of Caramel and Marz. Ending the night with a four number encore at the keyboard this proved to be an emotional, rocking, blow your socks off gig. There was a whole lotta love radiating from the Octagon Centre for a Thursday night. Photographs: @sarahgibblondon

Rated 5 out of 5 by beckymoo from AMAZING!! Was full of a cold and not feeling up for going out at all. John grant was outstanding and as always the Albert hall was such a good venue for it - probably my favourite in Manchester. I reckon it's going to be a very high contender for gig of the year

Rated 5 out of 5 by murdoc from 2 incredible, passionate talents This gig blew me away. Soley's performance was one of the most captivating, engaging and touching I've ever had the pleasure of attending, her soft voice complementing the multitude of instruments that she played really invigorated me and for that to then be followed up by a fantastically powerful, energetic and incredibly fun performance by John Grant and his band that struck a perfect balance and made this a really great evening!
