Introducing Jamie T on stage, Maccabees frontman Orlando Weeks described him as a “hero” and said “he’s proper.”

Prior to Jamie T’s arrival on stage The Maccabees had focused mainly on their new album and played songs including ‘Kamakura’ and ‘Something Like Happiness’ from the record. Signalling the start of the new material, Weeks said: “We’re going to play some new songs now, if that’s OK.”

Meanwhile, guitarist Felix White took on the job of warming up the crowd and asked them to jump when the intro of ‘Can You Feel It?’ kicked in. Prior to ‘Precious Time’, meanwhile, White said: “Do us one favour, if you know this fucking sing it loud.

Orlando Weeks also took time out to dedicate a song to last night’s headline act Florence + The Machine. “Who saw Florence last night?” he asked before playing ‘Pelican’ and describing those who did as “Jammy gits.” The Maccabees and Florence + The Machine have a long history with Weeks describing the artwork for the band’s first album, ‘Ceremonials’.

Florence Welch, watching in the crowd, was caught by an NME photographer. See below for the image.
