What people are saying about Grimes
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hannah Banana from Amazing! I've loved Grimes' music ever since I heard Visions, and adore her latest offering, Art Angels, which I would rate as my favourite album of the year. Finally seeing her for the first time this year was every bit as amazing as I could expect, with her array of phenomenal hits and energetic dancing; I fell in love with her all over again. I only wish I could see her perform again very soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bunny from Honestly the best unexpected night out We thought we were going to see Lana Del Rey because Grimes toured with her the year before, somehow I'd gotten it in my head that it was Grimes and Lana performing like before. We did eventually realize before the event that it was just Grimes but decided to go anyway so's not to waste a ticket. This turned out to be the best beat pumping, energetic, exciting and beautiful live show me and my friend had ever witnessed! Grimes has such energy on stage despite her shy and bashful presence that comes when she apologizes and thanks the audience, (which adds to her charm), in between songs. A cross between rock, rave and pop this was the most fun i'd had in months. Highly recommend to anyone up for a good time, and the crowd was full of lovely people!

Rated 5 out of 5 by grimygrimepit from Acid Dream Claire Boucher is a dream. Watching her on stage shows she's a pure performer as well as an artist. She's made of light and black crystals and sometimes bleeding vulnerability, but she can scream with so much velocity she can make you want to lose your mind. You don't; you lose your body instead. You go wild. In between that bone jarring energy she drenches you with thick space fuzz, and you go into slow hypnosis. She looked just like a girl in a grungy t-shirt, with candied hair and girlish laughter, but when she talked to the audience she was never just being cutesy; she was just talking to us. None of that drugged remoteness that seems synonymous with on stage authenticity. She dances like a gorgeous demon. Sometimes you just had to pause to watch her. You guys on the balcony? You really missed out. This isn't opera, y'all. She said y'all. TOO MUCH. She played a beautiful new song and we're going to be in the video. LOVED IT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ohplums from GRIMES=FUN Really enjoyed the gig, it was a late christmas present for my boyfriend. She gave it her all, despite being ill which i think added to the spirit of the night. Lots of dancing, plaits and dyed hair. Sea of glitter and moving bodies! Was awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ObiMarshKenobi from Grimes & Hana First time in four years since Grimes has visited the UK and what a change has occured in that time! For the new lp Art Angels she learnt to play a few more instruments, and was playing guitar for the first time on a few numbers, as well as juggling between synth, vocals and samples/beats. In the mean time her stage presence become more assured, and she' s more vocal than previously, as well as more free from the restraints of previous tours due to having a wireless microphone now, as well as support act Hana backing her up on vocals/guitar and drums throughout Grimes set. The set listing was a good Mix of Visions & Art Angels (the only two of Grimes LPs which live material is drawn from). Hana was a unexpected surprise, having not heard her music prior to the tour, i was immediately hooked and enjoyed every moment of her set, including a cover of "Here comes the rain again" (Eurythmics), a brave move for any artist, I would recommend Hana for any fans of Purity Ring, the more ambient side of Grimes, set closer "Chimera" is a good place to start.
