A star-studded audience turned out in force to see The Zutons perform for a triumphant gig in LONDON over the weekend.

Har Mar Superstar, Noel Gallagher, members of Streets, Elbow, The Zutons, and Gorillaz were there to see the Scouse five-piece play Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

The Mercury Music Prize nominees ditched their yellow boiler suits for the night and performed a series of hits from their debut album including 'Zuton Fever', 'Havana Gang Brawl', 'Long Time Coming' and 'Pressure Point'.

The biggest cheers came for hit singles 'Remember Me' and 'You Will You Won’t', which singer Dave McCabe dedicated to the crowd.

The Scouse five-piece also played forthcoming single 'Don’t Ever Think' and new track 'Weekend Scrub' which McCabe said was dedicated to saxophonist Abi Harding.

As the band left the stage they received a standing ovation from the crowd.

Speaking before the show, drummer Sean Payne told NME.COM: "We have been looking forward to this gig loads. It’s been weird getting used to the big places, because we have been used to playing festivals and playing in America. So coming back here is a bit crazy, but it’s good though."

"We don’t know if we’ll be swapping the boiler suits for some Santa outfits. But it is Christmas so it could happen I reckon," Sean joked.
