At The Lexington in London last night (27 July), Two Door Cinema Club treated 200 fans to a special Glastonbury warm-up in collaboration with XFM and Ford SYNC, in aid of children’s charity War Child. Here’s singer Alex backstage.
The band have got used to playing far bigger shows in recent times.

Taking the stage just after 8.30pm, the Northern Irish band ran through much of their likely Glastonbury set, mixing the best of their debut album ‘Tourist History’ and last year’s follow up ‘Beacon’.
The show was a rare chance for fans to catch the band in a small venue, the likes of which they haven’t played for a while.
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.”
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’.
