Kele goes solo at Reading
NME tent gets ravey before the sun sets
Alex Fahey - 29 August 2010
"My name is Kele, thank you for coming to watch me," he began, "I'm not going to lie, I had
an awesome time at Leeds yesterday." The inevitable boos ensued before Kele won the crowd back over with the simple, "I knew my friends down
South wouldn't let me down."
'Everything You Wanted' was given an early airing to great response from the crowd as the band and female backing singers thumped through the single.
"I'm not sure if you know this but I have another band who are really quite good," Kele explained over loud cheers before the band started into a housey re-working of Bloc Party's 'Blue Light'.
Kele keeps the crowd buoyant by then going straight into a slowed vocal version of 'The Prayer' and Bloc Party hit 'One More Chance'.
Such is the nature of the album ‘The Boxer' it means that there is rarely a lull in the set and the crowd danced with their hands in the air from the front to the back of the tent in what was a trance soaked solo set.
Reading Festival 2010 continues with sets from Blink 182, Roots Manuva and many more.
