Two Door Cinema Club played one of their “best gigs ever” for the first of two nights at London‘s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire last night (September 22).
The Northern Ireland three-piece played a host of tracks from their recent debut ‘Tourist History’, including all of the singles which got much of the crowd singing along.
The band also debuted a new song for their London fans which flame haired singer Alex Trimble said was untitled, but had the working title ‘La Nouvelle Chanson’ on their setlist.
Welcoming their fans early on, Trimble said: “It’s a pleasure to be back in London, it’s been a while. This is one of the biggest headline shows we have ever played, so thank you.”
As the show moved on, he became and more humbled by the crowd. “It has taken so long to get here, a year and a half ago we were on the bill with four bands and we were first on. I can’t quite believe we’re the last band on now,” he said before introducing ‘Kids’. “I have been quite nervous all day about it, but you have been fine. Lots of red wine calms the nerves too.”
As the band wrapped up the show with ‘I Can Talk’ the four-piece showered the crowd in white and red ticker tape.
Signing off, Trimble added: “This is one of the best gigs ever for me, personally, and to see you dancing like this is amazing. Thank you so much.”
