The Enemy had already racked up a pretty impressive gigging CV before they hit Corby on Saturday night. They've played a six-night stand at the now-defunct Astoria, appeared on the 2007 NME Rock And Roll Riot Tour, supported The Rolling Stones and Kaiser Chiefs and headlined Godiva festival in their hometown of Coventry.

Fans get up close and personal in Corby during The Enemy's five-date intimate tour, during which they aired a couple of tracks from their new album 'Music For The People'. Speaking to NME.COM about the record recently frontman Tom Clarke said: "We decided to go right back to basics with the recording and do it all on tape rather than computers which is how the vast majority of modern records are made, and as a result it sounds huge, like a proper old school rock record."

The Enemy's recent tour of 'secret' and tiny UK venues was a far cry from what they're facing this summer, as they head out in support of Oasis on their UK summer stadium tour - which includes a three-night stint at London's Wembley Stadium.
