My concert number 5 on Ramin’s road to find out took me to yet another city I’d never been to so far: Birmingham. More than 2 hours on the train (I’m really not a fan of train journeys I might add) but I’m so glad I was there to see the show.
Because one thing I can say for sure: This was definitely the best concert out of the five gigs I have seen on this tour. I did miss Alex and the cajón during Ahead by a century but that’s about the only “negative” thing I’ve got to say.
Ramin was on top form despite neck problems and his two guests Louise Dearman and Jonathan Ansell were absolutely wonderful.
I was especially impressed by Jonathan’s Somebody to love – what a voice!
It was nice to hear more of Katie Birkill again. Her and Ramin singing Solitude was an unplanned yet more than welcome addition to the set list.
Speaking of this, I know one of the things people are most interested in is the always changing song list of Ramin’s concerts.
So here you go everyone.
