Describe in a Tweet: Get working on some new tunes La Roux

What Happened: La Roux came on stage and immediately lowered any expectations that the audience had by stating that she was "unwell with a sore throat" and would not be very good today. Not a good start to the set and not entirely true as it turns out.

For an artist with only one album with a couple of, albeit massive, hit singles this arena was far too big for the star at this stage of her career. The lesser known album tracks were too downtempo and were not received well by the audience. However, when 'In For The Kill' was dropped near the end of the set the audience were reminded of why they where there in the first place.

Crazy in Love: An extended version of hit single 'Bulletproof' sounded amazing live and really united the crowd.

99 Problems: La Roux is a star in the making and has a good live persona but was held back by her lack of hit singles. Roll on Album Number 2.

Oxegen Rating: 6/10
