‘Northern Lights’, the fan favourite being sung before the band came onstage hit the spot perfectly and the crowd surged forward leaning heavily on the barrier reaching out for the briefest of opportunities to touch a hand or a leg as the three lads worked tirelessly at the front of the stage.
All in all, a great night out and proof that a well performed acoustic show is as powerful as a full electric set, if it’s done well.
We were learning so much watching those bands, you know what I mean? Going, “that’s how you craft a song, that’s how you get 80,000 people to put their hands in the air and sing along.
Desperate to squeeze one last band in before heading home, a scan of artists and venues delivered the opportunity to see another band that I’d been meaning to see for several years. Young Guns have a great reputation around London and yet either as a headline or support act, I’ve never managed to catch them live.
