Review… Diana Vickers, Deaf Institute


Playing to a full house at Manchester’s Deaf Insistute, Diana Vickers left no seat unoccupied as everyone got up on their feet and watched her belt out her pop-folk tunes from her up and coming album Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree, out at the beginning of May.

Replacing her shoeless performance with some killer heels, and the awkward ‘claw’ replaced with the occassional touch of her neck, she looked like she was loving every minute! Whipping out tunes left right and centre, with the occassional trumpet play, Diana also did an amazing rendition of Snow Patrols’ “Just Say Yes”.
Finishing on her new single “Once”, she had the audience in sync as her dedicated fans sang the chorus with her as they all lifted one finger in to the air! Although a touch sweaty (maybe a bit of an understatement), she didn’t let her dedicated fans down, staying after to sign t-shirts and pose for pictures.
All in all, i’d say the Blackburn-born lass has well and truely earnt herself the title of a crackin’ solo artist!
