British DJ Bruce Fielder known professionally as Sigala, Is on his first headline tour in the UK and it’s a sell out at Manchester Gorilla.

The stage fills with Sigala’s entourage, musicians, dancers, singers, the crowd is screaming as the lead MC shouts ‘Manchester you’re not loud enough’ the crowd know they are in for a party.

Drum’s roll for Fielder’s entrance. First up they hit us with number one single ‘Easy Love’. Gorilla tonight, is a huge party straight off.

The Sigala singers and dancers are dressed in vibrant African themed outfits, giving a carnival feel to the show. New single ‘Ain’t Giving Up’ is one of the first highlights of the show, the vocalist covering Craig David has a piercing voice and wows the crowd.

Half way through Fielders set his entourage leave the stage we are left with him and lead MC, he moves to the front of the stage with a laptop and spins a 30min mash-up of old and new club hits. Gorilla’s dance floor is filled with beach balls and the party continues. Fielders seemed to be having the best time of anyone there.

The stage becomes a carnival again when his entourage return for track ‘Give Me Your Love’ the crowd are a little disappointed that John Newman couldn’t make it up for the Manchester gig, however a huge highlight all the same.

The crowd didn’t even seem tired out for closing track ‘Sweet Lovin’ when we are joined by Bryn Christopher for vocals. Every hand in the air.

Fielders sticks around on stage after the gig to chat to the fans. The Sigala Carnival pulled out all the stops for the sold-out gig.
