Stormzy review, London O2: Grime’s most versatile voice delivers a blistering performance that was two years in the making

“Tonight’s my f***ing night,” Stormzy proclaims to a packed-out O2 arena on Sunday evening. He isn’t wrong. The south London rapper has been headlining festivals and selling out shows for so long, it’s hard to believe tonight is his first time playing the London arena. “I’m home,” he grins to an audience already on their feet. After all, it’s their night too. The majority of the 20,000 people in the stands purchased their tickets over two years ago. Delayed for two years, Stormzy’s tour for his second album, Heavy Is the Head, is finally underway.That record won over any doubters...

Stormzy review – shock and awe

A superstar-size stage show very nearly distracts from the colossal charisma of the south London rapper. Hip-hop has a soft spot for statistics. On Audacity, a track full of pique at the impertinence of his critics, the rapper Stormzy lists the capacity of the venues he played on the tour for his debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer, as evidence of his supremacy in UK grime. “5,000 capacity,” it goes, “spread that over the UK and then add it up and get back to me.”

Standing aloft a disc suspended by chains from the roof, hovering over the heads of a roaring crowd at Newcastle’s Utilita Arena amid bursts of pyrotechnics, Stormzy looked like the closest thing British pop has ever come to a superhero. Six foot five and bulging with muscles, the charismatic powerhouse led the frontline on a show packed with more special effects than a Marvel blockbuster.
