EX-JLS MEMBER ASTON MERRYGOLD BRINGS HIS HEADLINE TOUR TO ORAN MOR, GLASGOW
First up was American artist Ryno, who is described as ‘Electric Indie Pop’ and came all the way from New York City. Only having 20 minutes to perform, he warmed the crowd up (which was already pretty full) by singing a few well-known covers as well as his own stuff. Even though there wasn’t much interaction from the crowd, he still powered through his set, showing how much he was enjoying performing to the Glasgow audience.
Next up came another American singer, Jack Vandervelde. This time Jack took to the stage with just his guitar although this did not temper the audience’s reaction to him, with the crowd cheering and clapping as he entered the stage. Jack sang a lot of well-known covers mashed together, which got everyone pumped up for the main act to follow.
Finally, it was time to prepare for Aston himself to enter the stage. DJ3D warmed up the crowd with one of Aston’s dancers, playing the latest hits from the charts and dancing around the stage for the 10 minutes before Aston was due to come on. With the crowd entertained from the previous acts and majority of them sporting Aston Merrygold merchandise, it was obvious they were excited and ready for him to enter the stage. The music slowed and got louder, before a countdown from 10 began and Aston entered the stage. Of course, like expected the crowd went wild. On came his 3 dancers and the 4 of them began to dance to a thought out choreographed routine with DJ3D still on stage playing backing tracks for Aston to perform to.
