Sheffield's finest play to a star-studded crowd

Taking to the stage at the city’s 3,000 capacity Hammerstein Ballroom, the band performed a string of hits from both their albums – their 2006 debut ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’ and new record ‘Favourite Worst Nightmare’.

Watched by a crowd that included The StrokesNick Valensi, Nikolai Fraiture and Albert Hammond Jr, We Are Scientists, Amanda de Cadenet and Regina Spektor, the band played a blistering set.
