Coming onstage to rapturous applause, the six-piece kicked off with ‘Showdown’ before going on to play an extended version of ‘Fasten Your Seatbelt’ from debut album ‘Hold Your Colour’.
Frontman Rob Swire was animated throughout, jumping around the stage and telling the crowd to “come on!”, “crank it” and “‘ave it!”.
Finishing with ‘Granite’, Swire thanked his fans and informed them that this was the band’s 150th live appearance, to which he celebrated by telling them to do a cheer starting from the back and ending at the front.
