MTV Gig Highlights Of The Week: Isle Of MTV Malta, George Ezra, Ed Sheeran & More
Another big week...
Team MTV have been taking on some hard tasks this week, having to jet off to Malta for Isle of MTV and being forced to go watch Ed Sheeran at one of his huge shows at Wembley Stadium.
But, we managed to get through it all - so here are some highlights of what gigs the team have been checking out this week...
George Ezra @ Summer Series at Somerset House
The 22-year-old crooner turned a grey, windy and not very summery evening outside into something way more amazing. And judging by our five star review, you can bet he put on one incredible show. - July 13
Chronixx & Zincfence Redemption @ Summer Series at Somerset House
On a cloudy summers evening in London, Chronixx brought a little bit of Kingston, Jamaica to the filled courtyard of Somerset House. As the Zincfence Redemption band played and Chronixx seamlessly went from hit to hit, it was clear that while it may be the first time reggae has come to Somerset House, it won’t be the last! - July 12
Ed Sheeran @ Wembley Stadium
Ed 'proved himself to be one of the greatest singer-songwriters of our generation' during the second show in his three gig stint at Wembley Stadium. Yep, Wembley Stadium. But no matter what the venue, Ed is still the same as he always has been, which is probably why this show was such a smash. - July 11
Leon Bridges @ Notting Hill Arts Club
Soulful Leon Bridges brought real southern charm to Notting Hill Arts Club. It felt like a memorable trip back to better times! - July 10
Gary Clark Jr @ Summer Series at Somerset House
"Exuding effortless cool, the bluesman tore through his set with the kind of raw charisma and power embodied by the rock and roll greats of yesteryear. With the crowd completely under his spell, the Texan steered us through dizzy highs and heart-rending lows - seamlessly blending the energetic, relentless funk of tracks such as ‘Bright Lights’, with his trademark soul-stirring blues."

Gabrielle Aplin @ Wilton’s Music Hall
Former MTV Brand New artist Gabrielle Aplin showcased her brand new album. Whenever you manage to fill a venue on the day the London Underground is shut down, that’s the signs of an artist people really want to see, and Gabrielle definitely made it worth it! - July 9
Years and Years Album Launch @ One Mayfair
Years and Years took over One Mayfair to launch their brand new album ‘Communion’. Between the bands strong live performance, amazing album tracks and Patron’s generous distribution of beverages- A night and an album to remember! - July 8
