White Lies play first of two sold-out shows at FAC251

Trio raise the roof at the 450-capacity Manchester venue

White Lies played the first of two sold-out shows in Manchester last night (February 13), at FAC251 – The Factory.

Performing their 2009 debut album ‘To Lose My Life…’ in full, the trio also showcased the non-album track ‘Taxidermy’ and B-side ‘You Still Love Him’.

Barely pausing to speak in between songs, the band sailed through their set, rousing the 450-crowd with the likes of ‘Unfinished Business’, ‘To Lose My Life’, ‘A Place To Hide’ and their final song ‘Death’.


Earlier in the night Manchester band 1913 supported with their first gig in almost a year. All dressed in black, the group warmed up the crowd with a set that included their upcoming single ‘Atlantis’.

Meanwhile, White Lies will play their second show at FAC251 tonight (February 14).

‘Farewell To The Fairground’
‘Price Of Love’
‘You Still Love Him’
‘To Lose My Life’
