Vancouver last embraced a set from OVO SOUND duo Majid Jordan this past summer when they played Safe & Sound Music Festival to the delight of a packed West Coast audience. This past week Vancouver fans sold-out the legendary Orpheum Theatre to welcome back Jordan Ullman and Majid Al Maskati for The Space Between World Tour. Named after their recently released second studio album, the tour sold out in days and had many scrambling to reach for last minute tickets. Fans eagerly filled the venue with the anticipation of seeing their new material performed for the first time on the West Coast.
Opening for the duo was French producer, Stwo who set the mood by offering a set to set an atmospheric mood for the crowd. The Orpheum itself offers vaulted ceilings with intricate moulding that allows sound to rise upwards and resound throughout the hall and providing the perfect background to let Majid’s vocals very literally surround his audience. While tracks like “OG Heartthrob” and “Gave Your Love Away” are great on recording, in a theatre of that structure it felt like a truly cinematic experience.
The standard of music was already high, but the ambiance of the event was something that most of us won’t forget. The entrance of the duo was accompanied by an electric backdrop that glowed and changed colours to the natural progression of the show. Vancouver always welcome the OVO artists with open arms, but The Space Between Tour will leave the singer/producer duo with the challenge of topping a seamless show.
