I featured Ollie Wride a few days ago on here, and I’ve been looking forward to this gig since. There was definitely some Freddie Mercury in his show tonight and it was fantastic. It’s obvious there was a lot of planning for tonight, and I even found the soundcheck a bit entertaining… His sound (mix a bit of glam rock with some synth) is unique enough to give him an edge without being gimmicky, and the way he carried his set worked really good! Headrush was song of the night for me. Tons of fun, and a pop star in the making for sure!
