Review on the S Club 7 ‘Bring It All Back’ tour at the O2 London on Saturday the 16th of May.
If you were a fan of S Club 7 and other nostalgic music from your childhood, then this concert would have been ideal for you!
They sung all the classics like: ‘Reach’, ‘Never had a dream come true’ and ‘Don’t stop movin’, although I did think they wasn’t going to sing ‘Don’t Stop movin’ towards the end of the show, which I would have been really disappointed about, but thankfully they came back on stage at the very end to sing it!
The only thing that did annoy me a little about this concert was the fact that they decided to do their own solo acts, for instance Rachel Stevens came out and sung some of her solo hits, like ‘Some Girls’ and ‘Sweet Dreams My L.A Ex’. And it felt like they were trying to drag out the show by doing this, plus I also paid to see them all together not singularly!
But hey, this was the only negative I had about the show overall, as the rest of their performance was brilliant, plus I must say they didn’t even look like they had aged slightly from when they had their first hits out. It’s also something you won’t really get to see it again, as they aren’t together anymore, so if they did ever do a tour again I’d recommend buying tickets!
When I’ve seen a concert at the O2 before, for instance Example in 2012, I’ve always found that they never really had anything going on in the background, and it just seemed like an empty stage. However, this really wasn’t the case with S Club 7 as they had everything going on from flashing lights to fireworks.
The only thing I would say is please don’t drink too much at a concert, as it does become an annoyance for the people around you, as the young lady next to me was completely drunk and ended up spilling a bottle of wine all over the person in front of her. So if your one of these people please have a little consideration for others and drink sensibly!
But other than this it was a really enjoyable concert, which I would consider seeing again, as it does bring back all them childhood memories, if you were a fan back in the 2000’s!
If you’re a little scared of heights I wouldn’t get a seat in the highest blocks, as looking down from them does feel like quite a long way and can be a little daunting.
