Busking Report – Kings Cross (Pitch 1)

Published 24 November 2017 in London, UK

I had high hopes for Kings Cross on Saturday. At midday, it’s a very busy station.

I was only there from 12:00 to 13:30 as I had plans after my session at 3, so it was less than usual, but it wasn’t as

Some notable moments

The first tip

Thankfully the trend of getting the first tip in the first song continues - Breakfast At Tiffany’s, about 50p! Woop!

The biggest tips

Another trend continues: during Torn, I earned about £3.50 from 4 different people!

The best performance

Probably my first rendition of Get Back of the day was the best. I love singing that song, it’s easy to get super into it and really shouty and emotional.

How to improve

I probably shouldn’t overdo the busking. At the end of the session I was pretty nackered after having done two the previous day also. My fingers were well and truly spent!
