You Me At Six headlined O2 Academy Brixton last night, as hundreds of fans took over the streets outside the venue, leading security to marshal three separate queues.

Fans had been gathering from early afternoon to see the second of the band's two sold-out shows at the legendary venue, supported by Kids In Glass Houses, The Skints and Mayday Parade.

By 5.30pm, the main queue stretched down the side and around the back of the venue, while a second queue was formed along Stockwell Road and a third trailed from the Academy's front doors out on to Brixton Road. One local resident commented on the commotion: "It's the busiest I've ever seen it and I've lived here for years."

The Surrey quintet’s set drew mainly from their most recent album 'Sinners Never Sleep' with particular crowd favourites including 'Loverboy' and 'Bite My Tongue'. 'Reckless', meanwhile, was introduced by vocalist Josh Franceschi, who told the crowd that, at the age of 21, "everyone is too young to have a serious girlfriend".

The band's next single, 'No One Does It Better', will be released on April 8, while the band will be playing a number of UK festivals, including Download Festival and Reading And Leeds Festivals, this summer.

You Me At Six played:

'Little Death'
'Safer To Hate Her'
'Trophy Eyes'
'The Consequence'
'Jaws On The Floor'
'Take Off Your Colours'
'Finders Keepers'
'The Swarm'
'The Dilemma'
'Liquid Confidence'
'No One Does It Better'
'Stay With Me'
'Bite My Tongue'
