Paloma Faith

In a stunning gold jumpsuit and platform shoes, Paloma Faith took to the open-air stage at Cannock Chase and belted out a wonderful set of new songs and old favourites.

In stunning surroundings, the 36-year-old kicked off her one hour and 45-minute gig with new tracks Architect, Crybaby and Guilty, from her number one album The Architect, which was released back in November.

The mother-of-one was then quick to start chatting with a sold-out audience, of young and old fans, about life, including on motherhood, how being pregnant was akin to being a Russian doll, and how we forget to thank our bodies for how amazing they are.

She later urged fans to join her in spreading an “epidemic of kindness” by being nicer to everyone, and paused her gig, which was part of the Forestry Commission’s Forest Live series of concerts, to allow a fan who had fallen over to be helped before she continued.

Other tracks the audience were treated to, on what was a gloriously sunny Friday evening, also came from Architect as well as her back catalogue, including; My Body, Warrior, I’ll Be Gentle, performed with B.B Jones on the night, ‘Til I’m Done, and Everything is Changing.

Paloma ended her set saying: “I adore you, thank you for coming out” before rounding off with Only Love Can Hurt Like This.

George Ezra will be performing to another sold out audience at Cannock Chase today. You can find out more about the Forestry Commission’s Forest Live 2018 shows here.
