Having purchased the tickets ten months previous (so has to be sure of getting a seat). My husband and I were excited to finally arrive at the Nottingham Royal Concert Hall to see Caro Emerald, otherwise known as Caroline Esmerelda Van der Leeuw. Her outstanding performance was faultless throughout. She wowed the audience with an electrifying mix of old and new songs, all delivered to perfection in her off- beat, and relaxed style.
The supporting band were extremely talented, creating a mix of light jazz and pop music with a distinctive style. The concert hall was packed and as the shyness of the audience ebbed away, many were on their feet, dancing and clapping. When Caro announced that it was her birthday, the crowd roared their greetings as everyone sang the birthday song.
This was my first Caro Emerald concert, after encouragement from my husband who attended her performance last year at the same venue. I will certainly be keeping a check on the website for her return to Nottingham.
