60 seconds with Brett Eldredge – C2C edition
Back to the UK after a three year spell, Brett Eldredge is ready to take C2C by storm ahead of his Main Stage appearances in London, Glasgow and Dublin
So Brett, how are you feeling for C2C?
Yeah, I feel great about this. It feels like my first day at school or something! I’ve never played to this level in the UK or the Europe – we’ve played some big clubs here, but it’s so good to see how big country’s grown here and to be a part of that and to be singing in front of 20,000 people with new fans and new energy is just so exciting.
It’s been three years since you were last in the UK, what can we expect from the show?
Well I’ve figured myself out a lot more since last time! Last night I walked by KOKO and thinking about how many miles I’ve travelled since the last time I was here and how many hundreds of shows I’ve played.
I feel like my live shows were really special then, but I was really finding and honing in on my craft and I think that a place like this makes me inspired to try new things even more and to have different moments in the show because there’s a very high level of respect here for the music and I love that. I’m going to bring the biggest musical moments I possibly can up there out on stage.
Are there any surprises we should look out for this weekend?
That’s a good question…I’m always planning surprises! I don’t have a specific one yet, but I’ve actually surprised myself at shows recently as I’m going way more off the cuff than I used to and I try to feel the crowd out a little bit more.
Sometimes I switch the song order up a little bit if I feel people want to be a bit more upbeat, or if everybody’s really feeling emotional, I’m gonna go deeper. I really like that. I don’t know where it’s going to go, but I like that I don’t know where it’s going to go – I just know it’s going to be an incredible show as I’ve been waiting so long to play C2C.
