Live Review: One Ok Rock & Crown the Empire - O2 Empire, 13/12/2017
One of Japan's hottest musical talents, One Ok Rock took over London's O2 Empire earlier this month, and we can sum it up in one word!
BLOOMING SPECIAL! (Okay that was two, but it needed it!)
With support coming from Crown the Empire, who managed to hold the room together despite the audience being solely a dedicated One Ok Rock crowd. Their mix of melodic rock was met welcomely and were a fine selection to warm up the evening for the main headliners.
The lights dim, and Empire is made to feel like a stadium, as the crowd erupt in applause.
One Ok Rock spend the evening taking us on a journey of something spectacular, while in the same process making the venue feel so intimate, like as if they are playing a show just for us. Their track 'We Are' is the stand out of the night, turning the venue is a mass sing-a-long as it feels up with thumb lights which everyone seems to have.
Their performance is tight and flawless throughout, and we would love to see what this band could do on something bigger. It is not even a case of potential, they are already there and ready to take it on.
So come on lads, lets go bigger!
