She kicked off her tour last night in Germany. Seen a few vids today on YouTube and have to say she's sounding amazing, seems to bra show all about her vocal, this is what I want as her last 'Labrynth' tour in 2010 was a big stage production.....I'm seeing her in Manchester on 14th and Liverpool on 15th (bought my BF tix to see her as he loves her too...front row at both dates )

Anyone else seeing her?? And is anyone loving the Glassheart album as much as me!! I do love all 3 of her albums though

Faves are ;
Unlove me
favourite scar
Shake you up
Stop the clocks
Lovebird
When it hurts
Fireflies

I really wish I could afford to have brought tickets. She must be worth the money though.

My favourite tracks from Glassheart are well I've grown to like all of them but especially Come Alive, Fireflies, Shake You Up, Glassheart and Fingerprints.

I have been watching some of the performances on youtube too and she really does sound amazing.

I really hope they film the RAH dates for a DVD.

I loved that she actually played Piano for her performance of Trouble, I like that she is developing herself more musically aswell.

Aghhhh, so frustrated I'm not going to see her now. After seeing her play piano and the drum on stage, it would have been an awesome show. Even better she included my favourite song in the setlist

Hope everybody enjoys it, looks like it would be awesome!!

Some very good songs on the album, despite how low key it seems to have gone down.

When It Hurts, Fireflies and Lovebird

are up there with Yesterday, Better in Time and Crying is Beautiful

Top artist, and I'm a rap fan

Wow, stunning video.

Can't wait to see her in Oxford. Have been watching the vids of the tour on YT and she is looking & sounding brilliant.

Glassheart sounds different, she obviously preferred it before her album changed a little.

This should be posted on the news so everyone can feel like an idiot for not giving Glassheart a chance.

I don't really think anyone's going to feel like an idiot for not giving Glassheart a chance, I have her first two albums but just lost interest after the debacle of delays and rewrites. I also don't really think she has progressed that much musically and struggle to work out what genre of music her albums are. I don't think echo or glassheart flow as albums, whilst I think there are good tracks on each album neither made an impact on me that I would want to listen to them. Hence I don't think echo has been played since the first month it was released and glass heart I had a listen to but never bothered buying it.
The downsizing of stage production is due to financial reasons and poor sales of her music as well as not having huge demand for tickets to sell out huge venues. However I think that works out as a bonus for people attending as the labyrinth tour big production completely drowned out her vocals. Which again wasn't helped by cheap production of Live DVD/CD combo. I really do hope she breaks away from Simon Cowell and Syco records as they are only interested in their own cash flowing in rather than investing in an artist.

Sorry, I got a bit emotional after seeing that performance. I know Glassheart does switch sounds and even genres but as someone who likes multiple genres, this is actually what I love about the album! I like both kinds of albums that flow and those with a selection of different sounds so I'm ok with that. But I get that some people just don't like that. I still think Glassheart should have done better though. But it's likely that many people bought certain songs rather than the whole album which impacted it's sales. But I definitely disagree when you said she hasn't progressed musically. She has, she's singing with more emotion, she has more confidence and she's doing what she wants. I actually hope she sticks to this rather than letting her label take control, although some success would be nice so she can continue this.

That's how I feel. She seems to be expressing herself so much more now that she did at the height of her commercial success. And I think that Echo and Glassheart are both more interesting albums than Spirit, even though they are less popular. She was sold as a modern Mariah/ Whitney etc, but I think her voice has other qualities which she is now exploring.

From what I've seen, with this tour she is really moving forward as a performer and I also hope she gets the opportunity to continue with her musical journey which goes back to before the X Factor. She has far more substance that she is popularly given credit for.

exactly this! I also hope she's given a bit more artistic freedom, but the opportunity to actually promote her music by releasing decent singles. The clips I've seen so far show that she's improved DRAMATICALLY since her last tour, and she seems to really ooze confidence (even a slut drop at one point!!)

I'm really impressed and very interested to see where her next album takes her. I just hope we don't get an album full of cheap songs to try and get a hit, when they've already missed numerous opportunities with her past two albums.

I'm dying to hear I to You live though, that's officially one of my favourite tracks of hers and I really like 'dark' Leona. I'd love for her to cover an Evanescence song on tour at some point! I think I'd pass out from excitement ha!

I lost interest after syco didn't bother to promote echo.
I just think leona can't be bothered and will just work at her own pace which is why she is no longer relevant.
beyonce and rihanna are much more ambitious.

I'm screaming.

I used to stan for her, but when she announced Lovebird, my stan card went straight in the bin.

I don't even listen to her anymore, and I had to unfollow her on social media.

This is so sad, from selling out huge arenas, to this? It sounds like there's about 25 people in the audience, and the atmosphere is as flat as her personality. Teehee.

I'm sorry, but my love for her truly transitioned to dislike. That day she announced Lovebird, I was tempted to go out and buy a steak and some new leather boots as the ultimate F YOU.

I love her voice, but everything about her is so dated, the outfits the high ponytail. Not much movement on stage.

She needs someone to sit her down and give her some real talk, because she could be so much better than this.

Just my opinion

This says it all for me. I would really love to go to more than 1 show, but I am just so happy to be able to get & see Leona live again. For me the Glassheart album is superb, and definitely shows real growth, we haven't seen the best of her yet.

ITA.

She totally needs a fresh break and reinvent herself under a brand new label. Easier said then done of course.
