Maybe Plan B doesn't need a Plan C!

Plan B bringing sweet grooves
to Norwich UEA! 
It was a sold out night at Norwich UEA for Plan B as his complete reinvention from talking morbid just to make you awkward to his chart pleasing soul sound complete with backing band and singers made for a spectacular live show. The support was from Clare Maguire with her mighty voice. She sounds expressive and soulful. A star in the making!

Ben Drew maybe accused of selling out by certain people as he was regarded as the UK Eminem when he first arrived on the scene but you cannot doubt the quality of his second album The Defamation Of Strickland Banks. Songs like Writings on the Wall, I Know a Song Stay Too Long and Love Goes Down get the whole crowd going with some people singing back word for word showing their complete devotion for Plan B. Welcome to Hell seems a bit like tongue in cheek!

He was dressed in a suit looking like he should be on the way to court but somehow ended up headlining a glitzy show at the UEA LCR. With a full video back screen the venue looked like it had been transformed in to something out of Las Vegas. I kept wanting him to go back to the scary Plan B and put more edge into the show. The fury has been replaced with sweet grooves. Maybe Plan B doesn't need a Plan C!
