Will Young cracked jokes on stage on the last night of his 'Love Revolution' tour in Hammersmith Apollo in London last night (29.11.15)
Will Young ended his 'Love Revolution' tour with a joke-filled set at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Sunday night (29.11.15).
The 'Love Revolution' singer hugged people in the front row, plucked camera phones from waving hands to take photos of the packed auditorium, and branded himself an "over-excited pop-vicar" on the closing night of the UK and Ireland tour.
Addressing the thrilled 5,000 strong crowd on his choice of ensemble - which was a black, floor length jumpsuit that flapped around him as he jumped and sauntered across the stage - Will quipped: "I'm wearing ... What is it? It's like a cassock, I'm an overexcited pop vicar with a top knot!"
Armed with just a mic stand and a trio of incredible backing singers, the 36-year-old pop star - who is known for his passion for wearing female skirts and dresses - opened the enigmatic set with 'Brave Man', followed by 'U Think I'm Sexy' from his new album '85% Proof' and continued to tear through a list of hits old and new such as 'Light My Fire', 'Gold', 'Runway', 'Like a River', 'Changes' and his recent hits 'Love Revolution' and 'Joy'.
Will took time out to chat to fans on several occasions and mused that he had "mixed feelings of sadness and joy" that the 20-date tour was at its end, and mimed stuffing his face with doughnuts, because he had had so much fun and needed to "console" himself.
The star even asked the crowd to choose his next track, to which many cheered and shouted "Jealousy", however, Will called on his congregation of fans to have "patience" and left them waiting until just before the encore to sing the hit.
Meanwhile, glitter rained down on the former 'Pop Idol' winner as he belted out 'Light My Fire' and he later frolicked and crawled along the sparkly stage.
Will ended the night with two encores, during which he belted out fan favoured track 'Leave Right Now', but ended the night on new hit 'Promise Me'.
The catchy tune - which is sure to be a hit thanks to its current sound and distinct drum 'n' bass beat - had everyone up dancing and made sure the night ended on a high.
