Special guest performance at Alexandra Palace live show
Craig David joined Major Lazer on stage last night (October 17) during a performance at the group’s gig at London’s Alexandra Palace.
Dressed in his now signature white tracksuit, the singer – who has made a recent comeback with a series of live shows and radio appearances – sang an updated version of his debut solo single ‘Fill Me In’, originally released in 2000. His re-working of the song takes in the beat of Jack Ü – aka Diplo and Skrillex’s– summer hit ‘Where Are Ü Now’, and a freestyle rap verse.
Following his a cappella performance, which was met by a rapturous response from the crowd, the Major Lazer trio and their impressive dancers signed off Craig David’s segment with peace signs, before mainstay Diplo resumed his place behind the decks for ‘Get Free’, taken from 2013 album ‘Free the Universe’ which features the vocals of Amber Coffman from Dirty Projectors.
Weaving snippets of modern dancehall pop hits like Sean Paul’s ‘Like Glue’ into a set made up largely of material from Major Lazer’s 2015 album, ‘Peace is the Mission’, Diplo, Walshy Fire and Jillionaire transformed the surroundings of Alexandra Palace into a supercharged EDM rave.
Showcasing impressive visuals, including giant neon animations, crowd surfing, confetti canons and Diplo’s trademark zorbing, Major Lazer were joined by Norewgian pop star, and support act, Elliphant for ‘Too Original’ while, summer hit ‘Lean On’ was accompanied by an illuminated backdrop of the song’s lyrics.
Major Lazer also revisited older tracks including ‘Jah No Partial’, treating their fans to a high-octane gig which culminated with the trio removing off their t-shirts and encouraging the audience to follow suit.
