‘I

Look (UK) - - SUMMER'S NEW -

love do­ing gigs like this, every­one here just wants to have a good time,’ says Katy B when we meet for her Re­nault Twingo Ac­cess All Ar­eas show. We had only just found out that we were go­ing to see Katy (much to the ex­cite­ment of the Look of­fice). We were picked up by a 70-strong fleet of Re­nault Twin­gos and driven to a se­cret lo­ca­tion to watch one of Katy’s first per­for­mances of the year – and hear fresh ma­te­rial.

At the venue, sound­checks are hap­pen­ing and we’re able to ex­plore. There are makeup booths for us to get a painted pout (much like Katy’s) and a games room. When we meet the singer, she tells us about her new al­bum Honey and why she prefers these in­ti­mate per­for­mances.

‘I love it when you go and see an artist and they re­ally talk to their fans,’ she says. ‘Per­form­ing’s an op­por­tu­nity to thank them and I love go­ing from a crazy big gig to an in­ti­mate one.’ We leave Katy to warm up her vo­cals and man­age to squeeze in a dance off in the games area be­fore pop­ping into the Re­nault Twingo Ac­cess All Ar­eas pho­to­booth be­fore the show.

Katy kicks off her in­cred­i­ble set with a high en­ergy ren­di­tion of Lights On, be­fore launch­ing into al­bum ti­tle track Honey in front of a 200-strong crowd. Af­ter belt­ing our hearts out we’re ex­hausted and ready for bed. Bring on the next gig!
