James Morrison plays to a full house at the UEA in Norwich

A sell out crowd packed in to the LCR at the UEA for a gig which took fans from his earliest hits to his very latest releases.

It is five years since Morrison became a real force on the music scene with his debut album Undiscovered which sold two million copies worldwide.

The singer songwriter yelled 'it's good to be back' to the enthusiastic crowd and kicked off with the title track of the first album, which was one of five hits from it.

He followed it up with This Boy from the same album and then set the theme for the night of flowing effortlessly between his older favourites and releases from his new album Awakening.

The appreciative audience particularly enjoyed the sing along numbers, such as Once When I Was Little, Broken Strings, Nothing Ever Hurt Like You, Wonderful World and Precious Love.

Morrison is a musician who really wears his heart on his sleeve and the most moving point of the evening was when he performed In My Dreams, which was written after the loss of his father.

Morrison completed his 90-minute set with a three-song encore, including many fans' favourite You Give Me Something.
