Klaxons stunned the crowd on the first night of the ShockWaves Presents Club NME On Tour at Norwich’s Waterfront last night (September 27).

Playing the likes of ’Atlantis To Interzone’ and new single ’MagicK’, the biggest cheer of the night was reserved for ’Gravity’s Rainbow’, as the audience showed their appreciation for the three-piece by waving glowsticks around.

“It was amazing,” declared bassist Jamie Reynolds as the group came off stage. "What a great atmosphere."

The band also included their cover of Grace’s old school rave track ’Not Over Yet’ in the set, which showcased tracks from their forthcoming album ’Myths Of The Near Future’.

Klaxons played:

‘The Bouncer’
‘Atlantis To Interzone’
‘Hall Of Records
‘Golden Skins’
‘Two Receivers’
‘Gravity’s Rainbow’
'Not Over Yet’
‘4 Horsemen of 2012’

Earlier Datarock had opened the evening with songs from their self titled debut including ’Fa Fa Fa’ and ’Computer Camp Love’.

Playing in matching red jump suits, the band’s Ketil Mosnes later admitted to NME.COM they weren't completely practical stagewear, explaining: “It was really hot under those lights!”

Shitdisco then took to the stage, playing the likes of ’I Know Kung Fu’ and ’Disco Blood’ before closing with new single, ’Reactor Party’.

Following Klaxons' headlining set, the rave didn't stop with members of all the bands head to Norwich nightclub Poo Na Na to DJ.
