And that’s what Hoodie Allen did in Cologne on the 14th of this December on his hype tour show. But let’s go back to the start, right?
So first of all, I am in no way a big fan of the venue, have some bad memories from that place but this time it was quite nice because the people were incredibly sweet and respectful.
So that being said, guess who’s also super nice? Right, the Hoodie Guy 🙂
He’s got extremely much stamina and so much love for his fans that he usually stands in the merch booth an hour pre show to sell his merch and meet fans. Also, the first few fans in line usually get a M&G, plus there’s also the concert so yeah, he’s got a lot of love and energy for his fans. However, as there were no parking lots available anymore by the time we’ve arrived we missed out on the two support acts and I also can’t say whether Hoodie stood in the merch booth. BUT, I definitely wasn’t too late for his show and I tell you what, it is amazing that he has a full band, every song sounds so energetic and rocky and that’s how I like it.
He’s done a mixture of all of his records, all the fans’ favorites songs like “champagne and pools” and “small town” as well as a cover of “stand by me”. Slightly gutted they didn’t completely cover “American idiot” because I am pop punk at heart.
The show was incredible anyway, it was so much fun to watch the guys on stage and it was also so much fun to see the fans around me be all happy and smiley. There were 12 year olds, 24 year olds and 50+ ones all singing and jumping along and in my opinion if an artist manages to please all age groups he has to do something right and Hoodie does. His stage personality is so lovely and he’s very appreciative and the good mood definitely was contagious throughout the whole show.
For „”cake boy” he threw cake into the crowd and he also had some bits and bobs for some of the other songs and I personally loved that because the venue is quite boring and he’s brought his toys to make it much more fun and that was very nice!
Hoodie also jumped into the crowd and finished his song with the pit which is probably a highlight for most of the fans. One fan however has probably a much different highlight she got to sing a part of his song and completely nailed it.
It wasn‘t my first Hoodie Allen gig but compared to the one last year it was just so much better and I don’t think that it’s going to be my last show of him.
If you get the chance to see Hoodie in concert do it!
