Having embarked on an extensive tour across mainland Europe for the past two months, making stops in vibrant cities like Lisbon, Budapest, Oslo, and Brussels, Alberts went on to traverse the coastal landscapes of the UK.
As the lights fall, a carpet of mist engulfs the stage. At the centre, a small platform adorned with an antique rug and the instruments Ziggy would soon bring to life awaited him.
It would soon be evident that crafting an intimate atmosphere was paramount to Ziggy’s vision for the evening, hence the stage setup that exuded warmth and cosiness, inviting the audience to feel right at home as dim fairy lights dangled from the roof.
Out walks Ziggy Alberts, dressed in a white button-up shirt, standing alone yet commanding the attention of the entire venue.
Launching straight into one of the standout singles from his last album, The Sun & The Sea, instantly captivated and set the tone for the evening of music and storytelling to follow.
The 28-year-old’s music reverberated with electrifying energy, confidence, and above all, an undeniable sense of feeling. Each note he played carried a captivating story within it.
And that’s what he excels at so greatly as a storyteller and a poet. Throughout the evening between tracks as he allowed himself to set up, fragments of spoken word monologue filled the room, taken from his latest EP, A Postcard From London recorded at Abbey Road studios.
These moments added a unique dimension to the performance, further immersing the audience in his narrative world.
An array of cherished tracks from the past decade followed suit, including Days in the Sun, Heaven, don’t get caught up.
Shifting effortlessly between the keyboard and an arrangement of different guitars, at one point laying his guitar on his lap for percussive tappings on getting low.
With each track, thunderous applause and cheering followed the Queensland-born singer.
It was evident that his journey, starting over a decade ago as a street busker and leaving his job to pursue music in Byron Bay, had shaped him into the performer he is today, capable of captivating any crowd.
Now, with the Eventim Apollo sold out—a venue with a capacity of 5,000—he acknowledged this as perhaps his most significant overseas headline show, one that would be etched in his memory forever.
Before playing the hit single Together, taken from his second newest album, Ziggy delivered a heartfelt message.
He reminded everyone of the beauty that lies in our differences—our diverse backgrounds, religions, and cultures—and urged everyone to celebrate them, saying that tonight was proof that people from all walks of life can come together.
In these magical moments, Ziggy reminded us of the power of music and its ability to unite, inspire, and evoke deep emotion.
His ability to connect with his audience through his honest and introspective songwriting resonated long after the final notes faded away.
Ziggy Alberts’s latest album Dancing In The Dark and ew EP A Postcard From London is out now.
