The Pigeon Detectives bait Kasabian at Jersey Live

Leeds upstarts taunt festival's headliners

The Pigeon Detectives got the Jersey Live festival rocking this afternoon (September 2) with a frenetic hit-packed set, in which they baited headliners Kasabian.

Yesterday the atmosphere had been relaxed and sedate until the early evening, but Matt Bowman and his band got the crowd cheering and dancing throughout their 15:45 GMT slot, which saw the singer launch himself into the crowd, where he was mobbed.

In a moment of mild controversy, Bowman asked the crowd, “Who have you been looking forward to seeing most – Kasabian or The Pigeon Detectives?”, after playing ‘Stop Or Go’.


The crowd responded by cheering “Pigeon Detectives!” back to him.

Later in the set, during ‘You better Not Look My Way’, Bowman leaped into the crowd and sang while spraying the audience with water as he was mobbed. “You better catch these – I don’t want to be sued” he said moments later, after returning to the stage and hurling full bottles of water into the crowd.

The band ended their set with a frenetic ‘I’m Not Sorry’, leaving the crowd cheering for more as they waved goodbye.

The Pigeon Detectives played:

‘Romantic Type’

‘I don’t Know How To Say Goodbye’


‘I Found Out’

‘Stop Or Go’

‘Caught Up In Your Trap’
