After a warm up from some amazing support acts, Glasgow's famous 02 ABC2 started to fill up full of excitable fans waiting in anticipation - some head to toe in glitter - for Mabel's arrival. After just releasing her new single "Fine Line" last month, she had lots of new fans awaiting to see her for the first time.
Mabel took to the stage in an eye catching all white outfit and started off with her popular tune "Thinking Of You" from the EP of the same name. The song was very catchy and seemed to be a crowd pleaser. She then went on to perform "Bedroom", which is the song I was first introduced to by Mabel. As she performed she has a personal photographer and videographer running around the stage and venue capturing the night, to which the crowd smiled and posed for.
Before performing her sixth song of the night, Mabel asked the audience who all had been hurt and got them to raise their hands, encouraging them to admit to it before continuing to sing "One shot". "One shot", which as you can guess by the name, was about only giving someone one chance to prove themselves to which a lot of the audience related with.
Mabel's strong vocals pleasantly surprised me on the night along with the bouncy R&B beats considering her young age. She had a wonderful stage presence and it was difficult to take your eyes off her as she danced about the stage interacting with everybody and she made you feel like her friend just from watching her perform. She had two back-up singers, a drummer, a DJ and a keyboard player on stage which gave plenty to look at as there was lot's going on.
