Review: Miles Kane headlines Camden’s Roundhouse

Spirits were high as punters poured into Camden’s Roundhouse for Miles Kane’s headline show. 

First came a 30 minute set from newcomer Brooke Combe, her powerful vocals soaring through a cover of ‘Why’d You Only Call Me When Your High’ much to the audience’s delight. Brooke’s voice captivated the crowd, as she sang to them, “Do I impress you?”. The answer is yes, very much so, and we can’t wait to see more from this artist. 

Miles Kane had utilised the round venue, with mirrors circling the stage, looking similar to a retro jazz bar, the vivid red of the set reflecting at all angles. Coming on to the Rocky theme tune and chants of “Miles, Miles, Miles Fucking Kane”, he dove straight into some of his biggest hits, ‘Don’t Let It Get You Down’, followed by ‘Rearrange’ and ‘Coup De Grace’, the audience going crazy for him right from the start. 

Brooke Combe returned to stage to cover Ike & Tina Turner’s song ‘Nutbush City Limits’, the two musicians’ voices complementing each other beautifully. 

Miles treated fans to a Last Shadow Puppets track before welcoming out legendary singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae who performed ‘Nothing’s Ever Gonna Be Good Enough‘ with Miles much to the audience’s delight. 

The big hit of the night was ‘Don’t Forget Who You Are’ which was reprised not once but twice due to the audience continuing singing the track. The catchy melody circled the venue during the encore break, and Miles Kane sent the crowd into a frenzy, giving them exactly what they wanted by playing it again. 

A natural performer, oozing charisma and talent, Miles Kane knows how to put on a show, and does it with elegance. He belongs onstage, and this gig was further proof of that.
