Earlier this year when Gotye and Kimbra visited Toronto, we were absolutely blown away. Nearly 7 or so months ago, at the Kool Haus, it was proven to us that Gotye had star power and definite talent. Over the summer everyone on the planet (or close enough) became familiar with his hit “Somebody I Used To Know” only closely being taken over by Carley Ray‘s “Call Me Maybe” for track of the summer. If you’re interested in what we though before Gotye in concert before he took over the charts, see out last review [here]. For this time around, keep on reading!
We knew he was talented, but what we didn’t know was exactly how many instruments he had command over. Jack of all trades, Gotye, proved last night that he was born with more than just a set of pipes. Gotye played for a not so filled Molson Amphitheater in Toronto Thursday evening, however Massey Hall may have been more appropriate for the ambiance, crowd and time of year.
The night was chilled at a cool 14 degrees, leaving the audience in a subdue, conglomerate-like state. While the venue choice was questionable, Gotye personable banter lightened the mood as the night went on. Halfway through the evening, he requested people get closer to the stage; sparking the needed light that set fire to the rest of his set. Finally relieving the tension, Gotye played his hit song Somebody that I Used to Know, saving it until the second last song of the night, and the crowd ate up every minute of it.
