Plus Bombay Bicycle Club, Big Pink and Drums play London

The Maccabees were joined by Edwyn Collins on stage last night (February 20) as they brought the Shockwaves NME Awards Tour to a close in London.

Playing at the O2 Academy Brixton, the Brighton band welcomed indie legend Collins to sing on a rendition of his former band Orange Juice‘s 1983 post-punk classic ‘Rip It Up’.

Prior to The Maccabees‘ set, which as well as ‘Rip It Up’ featured crowd favourites ‘X-Ray’, ‘No Kind Words’ and closer ‘Love You Better’, The Drums, The Big Pink and Bombay Bicycle Club played.

The Big Pink‘s Robbie Furze was in a particularly energetic mood, stage diving into the crowd during ‘Dominos’.

Later, as The Maccabees‘ set ended, the three other bands on the bill piled onto the stage to help them bring ‘Love You Better’ home and end the Shockwaves NME Awards Tour for this year.

The Maccabees played:

‘William Powers’
‘One Hand Holding’
‘All In Your Rows’
‘Wall Of Arms’
‘Dinosaurs’
‘Precious Time’
‘Young Lions’
‘X-Ray’
‘Can You Give It’
‘Toothpaste Kisses’
‘First Love’
‘No Kind Words’
‘Bag Of Bones’
‘Rip It Up’
‘Love You Better’
