Watch George Ezra Play ‘Budapest’ at KROQ’s Red Bull Sound Space


George Ezra KROQBritish singer/songwriter George Ezra recently performed a few songs at the Red Bull Sound Stage for Los Angeles’ KROQ, a set that included the hit “Budapest” from 2014′s Wanted on Voyage.

Armed with just an acoustic guitar, Ezra’s strong voice delivered the rumbling song with all the depth and passion for which he’s become known. Ezra also engaged the crowd during the part that featured a guitar solo in the plugged-in version, asking if the audience could just imagine it.

“Budapest” was one of Ezra’s breakout hits, as it reached No. 3 on the U.K. Singles chart, No. 2 on Billboard‘s Hot Rock Songs chart, and No. 1 in Austria and New Zealand.

You can check out Ezra in action below and click here for his upcoming tour dates.
