SOUL sensation George Ezra brought a night of 'Paradise' to fans at Newcastle's O2 academy with his latest tour 'Staying at Tamara's', promoting the album of the same name.

The Hertfordshire singer-songwriter who rose to fame back in 2014 with his hit 'Budapest' instantly made him a household name and his popularity hasn't diminished, selling out every UK venue on his latest tour.

Ezra's iconic deep and soulful tone reverberated through the crowd as he sang through his back catalogue of classic hits; 'Pretty Shiny People', 'Did You Hear The Rain?' and 'All My Love'.

The singer who brilliant captures easy-listening with pop and blues, filled the night with masterpieces from his two hit studio album's including his newest release 'Staying at Tamara's', of which he explained it's origins.

Not only did Ezra bring a night of incredible music but also a night of reminiscing and a sense of friendship as he conversed with the crowd in between songs, making it feel more like a catch up with his fans than a concert.

Ezra has come incredibly far since starting his musical career but it's evident that he hasn't lost any passion for making music and performing live.

The crowd went wild, screaming over Ezra who struggled to get a word in edgeways at some points, proving that this wildcard certainly hasn't lost his touch.

The room was electric from start to finish and the set hand crafted to ensure both fans old and new could enjoy the show and it was evident they did!

Ezra will return to the North East next year to play Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena and if tonight is anything to go by, it shouldn't be missed.
