British icon Mimi Webb performed at Academy 2 in Manchester on Sunday night, presenting her greatest hits (so far) followed by a Q&A with her devoted audience.

The packed crowd lapped up performances from her debut album, Amelia.

She played hits including ‘Red Flags’, ‘House on Fire’, and ‘Good Without’, all of which have recently been in the UK Singles Top 20.

Mimi last appeared in Manchester in front of 13,000 people at AO Arena for Hits Radio Live.

Her Q&A began in the second half, giving the audience an opportunity to speak with her and ask the questions they’ve been dying to.

Which song from your most recent album is your personal favourite, a fan enquired of Mimi? “The title song ‘Amelia’, the album is about two people. Amelia, the countryside girl, and Mimi, the girl that gets to travel the world and play all these shows,” she told the adoring crowd.
