Upon the release of his debut album, Ten Tonnes has embarked on a UK tour that has almost hit sold-out status. After releasing his singles – “Lay It On Me” and “G.I.V.E.” in 2018, he gained popularity with a new crowd. ‘G.I.V.E’ had it first radio spin 2nd August at BBC Radio 1.

Doing a gig at one of my favourite venues in town, Riverside, Ten Tonnes packed the place out. Zuzu was the support artist for this gig, and I was a little late but caught the last half of her set and loved it. She had such an energy and engaged with the audience, as well as doing a cover of ‘Truth Hurts’ by Lizzo, the ultimate girl anthem that is for sure to get anyone (especially me) singing. Definitely worth checking out if you love a bit of feminist pop with a kick.

Ten Tonnes took to the stage at around 9pm, and walked onto Sweet Caroline playing, a stint that the crowd found pretty funny, and was soon playing ‘Lay It On Me’, a song with a chorus that got the crowd going. Playing a total of 15 songs in total, it was a lengthy set that kept everyone happy. The songs that stood up to me were ‘Nights In, Nights Out’, a heavier, punchy tune, a cover of ‘Build Me Up Buttercup’ from The Foundations, ‘Better Than Me’ a rock pop anthem and the encore of ‘Lucy’.

The atmosphere was full, with everyone bopping along and a few even attempting to mosh at the soft rock, and Riverside’s sound quality was as great as usual with meant the gig sounded incredible, exactly like the album.

Definitely check out Ten Tonnes if you like a good sing, songs I’d suggest to check out are ‘G.I.V.E’ and ‘Born To Lose’.
