Lostprophets cover Duran Duran

Band also invite Enter Shikari onstage

Lostprophets continued the series of Shockwaves NME Awards shows last night (January 15) with a blistering performance at London Astoria.

The Welsh heroes played a series of hits from their back catalogue before they invited St Albans rock’n’ravers Enter Shikari and openers Kids In Glass Houses onstage for their encore of ‘Burn Burn’.

Their set, which featured a series of tracks from their recent album ‘Liberation Transmission’, also featured a cover of Duran Duran’s ‘Planet Earth’ and Nine Inch Nails favourite ‘Sin’.

Speaking to NME.COM after the show, singer Ian Watkins expressed his glee at finishing their live campaign with an intimate gig.

He said: “It was fucking awesome. I think that’s what was cool about it. When you get back to a venue that size you just remember all the old gigs and get in that mindset and just have a fucking laugh. It was one of the most fun shows I played in a long time. It wasn’t planned out.”

Lostprophets played:

‘Everyday Combat’

‘Can’t Catch Tomorrow’


‘Town Called Hypocrisy’

‘Planet Earth’



‘Last Summer’

‘New Transmission’



‘Start Something’

‘Going Underground’

‘Last Train’

‘Shinobu Versus Dragon Ninja’

‘Burn Burn’

The band have now jetted out to San Diego to start work on their fourth album.
