And the band also hark back to the past at a storming first night at the Astoria...

The Futureheads delighted a sold-out LONDON crowd by showcasing new material – and harking back to their very beginnings.

The group played the first of two sold-out nights at the Astoria – and introduced new song ’Areas’.

The North-East four-piece also delighted the crowd, which included TV presenter Edith Bowman, by playing ’Ticket’ from their 2003 ’1-2-3- Nul’ EP.
