Sing with Mike Dignam!

Mike Dignam impressed at his gig at the Institute in Birmingham last night, which was packed with a number of the young musician’s highly dedicated fans.

The Preston-born singer/songwriter came to the UK’s second city as part of his tour across the UK on his ‘Sing With Me’ tour.

Dignam entertained the enthusiastic crowd with a range of songs that feature on the various EP’s, he has released throughout his career this far, including ‘Keep Up Lady’ and ‘Young’.

Though the setlist was expected to be an acoustic performance, fans were thrilled to find Dignam performing with a band. This fact didn’t change much though as fans continued to sing and clap along with the fantastic tracks (as they did with the support acts), while all standing in a very relaxed environment with a shared enjoyment of the performance.

After holding a competition to allow various fans or undiscovered musicians to support him at different shows during the tour. Birmingham voted and received two great musicians in the form of John Adam and Natasha North, who both completed amazing acoustic sets, which the fans happily listened to.

Dignam, who has recently finished a tour with Tich and another support slot during 5 Seconds of Summer’s UK AND Australian tour, made sure to entertain the fans by playing a number of his older and more well-known tracks, including ‘Great Escape’.

We would definitely recommend seeing the talented young man live as his tracks are incredibly catchy and will have everyone singing along.

Brumotions gives his performance 4/5 Microphones!
