‘At least I can see the faces of the smaller crowds’ 💙 James Blake live at Alexandra Palace

On Tuesday 17 May, James Blake ended his Friends That Break Your Heart tour at the Palace, where he used to congregate with his mates in adolescence ‘doing legal things… behaving myself’.

‘I actually just wanted to play everything. So that’s what I’m gonna do.’ – James Blake

The Enfield-born musician treated his fans to an endearingly wide retrospective of his career – from his early EP days to the debut of new song The Death of Love, and even a surprise appearance by slowthai.
