200 lucky fans attend the Glastonbury warm-up in aid of War Child
Two Door Cinema Club last night played a unique one-off show at The Lexington in London to 200 fans, at a special Glastonbury warm-up show in collaboration with XFM and Ford SYNC, in aid of children’s charity War Child.
Taking the stage just after 8.30pm, the Northern Irish band ran through their entire Glastonbury set, mixing the best of their debut album ‘Tourist History’ and last year’s follow up ‘Beacon’. Having recently played to 11,000 people at Alexandra Palace, and due to command the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm this weekend, the show was a rare chance for fans to catch the band in small venue, the likes of which they haven’t played for year.
Lead vocalist and guitarist Alex Trimble told the crowd, “I feel like I need to keep my wits about me tonight, in case one of you comes up here and does something, you’re all so close,” before launching into ‘Do You Want It All’.
The show was run as a benefit in aid of children’s charity War Child, who work on the ground in some of the world’s most dangerous countries, helping to put the lives of children affected by conflict back together. The gig culminated in a run of their biggest hits, closing with ‘What You Know’.
