Calum Scott Received a Standing Ovation at Danforth Music Hall, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, August 26, 2022



It was a sold-out crowd for Calum Scott’s headlining show of his Bridges North American tour at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto. Known for his breathtaking audition of his rendition of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015, Calum has gained a significant following since. So it was no surprise that the sold-out audience was itching to hear his remarkable voice live.


Jamie Miller was the opener for Friday’s show. Jamie showed off his incredible voice with a mix of original songs and notable covers in his setlist. The crowd was captivated by every sound Jamie sang. He entertained the crowd with his personal stories behind his songs while getting the crowd to sing along to the covers of Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” and Adele’s “Someone Like You.” In the end, Jamie Miller left the audience impressed with his set and got them warmed up for Calum coming up next.

After the lights dimmed dark, the backing band came onstage while a recording of Calum Scott played where he described the meaning of his sophomore album, Bridges. Calum came out shortly after, which was followed by a loud cheer. From the moment he opened his mouth from the opener, “Rise,” the audience was in love at first sight. “I’ll Be There” and “Cross Your Mind” was followed, which was the perfect start to uplift the crowd. 

Calum was left speechless with goosebumps as the crowd cheered loudly after performing “Biblical.” After that, he admitted that Toronto is the best show he’s ever performed out of all the cities he’s been to. That special moment was followed by his “crying and conquer” set that showed Calum’s personal and vulnerable side. The set’s highlight was “Boys In The Street,” a cover by Greg Holden that honoured his journey of coming out and others who are still struggling to come out. Calum was left in tears towards the end, but it left a roar of appreciation from the crowd. Next, the cello player hugged Calum after “Bridges,” which talked about his mental health struggles in his 20s. A wonderful moment came after when he was given a gift by a fan that featured the UK and Canada flags merged together.

The energy was back when Calum performed a cover of Maroon 5’s “This Love” and his worldwide dance hit with Lost Frequencies, “Where Are You Now.” The night couldn’t end without his most notable hits: “You Are The Reason” and the cover that started it all, his rendition of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own.” The crowd loudly sang to every word, which kept him smiling from beginning to end. The sold-out crowd gave Calum a standing ovation that got Calum shocked and in disbelief. It was an unforgettable show that had energy and emotions from beginning to end. Myself and the whole crowd can’t wait for Calum Scott to come back to Toronto for many more shows!
