Emporio Armani Live in Manchester

Emporio Armani Live

Emporio Armani Manchester

In October 2010, Armani opened a stunning new retail space in Manchester’s freshly-facelifted Spinningfields and on Thursday night the store hosted “Emporio Armani Live”.  Where better to hold an event showcasing talent from established and up-and-coming artists than the home of music?  Ok, so I may be a little biased but you have to admit us Mancs have an amazing musical heritage: The Smiths, The Stone Roses, Oasis, Badly Drawn Boy, Elbow, Dove, and The Chemical Brothers to name just a few.

By pure coincidence I was in Manchester over the weekend so when I received the invitation I was particularly happy to be able to accept, and as Chris was joining me on the trip up north I also managed to wangle him an invitation (thanks Anoushka!).

Due to previous commitments we were only able to pop along for the last hour and so just managed to catch the last two performances: first of which was JP Cooper, who totally blew me away, and Egyptian Hip Hop, who finished off the night.  The other acts were Polarsets and Josh Bray.

The store was packed – it seemed everyone was really enjoying the music and having a great time supping on Ciroc vodka and munching on canapés (of course).  It’s a real shame we couldn’t have gone for the whole event as we had so much fun!

Here’s a short clip of JP Cooper performing “My Father’s House”.  If this guy doesn’t make it there’s something wrong with this country and it’s shameful X Factor addiction (yes I judge you all now that I don’t watch it anymore!).
