Really getting caught up in the lively atmosphere at the venue, at one stage the former reconnaissance officer in the British Army donned a full military gas mask before leaping from the stage and crowd-surfing, relying on his fans to keep him aloft.

Backed by a top class band, he played all his smash hits from his Back to Bedlam album which earned him worldwide fame, including You’re Beautiful, Goodbye My Lover, 1973 and Bonfire Heart,

Blunt’s first album sold over 11 million copies worldwide and You’re Beautiful was number one in the UK, the US and a dozen other countries.

By 2013, Blunt had sold over 20 million albums worldwide and he has received several awards, including two Brit Awards and a Grammy nomination.
