The atmosphere was alive as a full house of fans awaited Kids in Glass Houses to entertain them on Saturday, May 8th when they played the Rock City in Nottingham.
To kick it all off, Spycatcher and General Fiasco took to the stage, proving to be worthy support acts by taking turns at getting the crowd psyched for the main act.
In a recent interview with The Linc, General Fiasco revealed that they were thrilled to be supporting such an act, and they deserved the spotlight as they got the crowd singing along to their every word.
“When our agent booked this show, we thought he was an idiot,” Aled Phillips, lead singer of Kids in Glass Houses, tells the biggest audience that they will play to on this tour, “but we’re glad that he did!” Once the band began, it was easy to see why so many of their tour dates were sold out.
When the lights went down, almost ten minutes before the band was due on stage, the crowd started cheering, jumping, and generally setting the tone for an electric evening.
The band’s latest album, “Dirt”, has been out for just a month but the crowd sung along to every word, even when Phillips started to sing “Hollaback Girl” in the middle of “Fisticuffs”.
The band had a thrilling energy commanding the stage, feeding off the crowds’ high spirits, and stopping in places to hear them sing back their lyrics.
The set list consisted of both old and new songs, with every one of them exciting the crowd in the opening bars. At one point, Phillips held out his microphone so that the crowd could sing into it, and everyone came together to sing in unison – a highlight for the front man it seemed.
After a set of 12 songs, the band left the stage to roaring chants of “We want more”, and the crowd were not going to rest until they got what they wanted.
The band returned for an encore, singing a few favourites including “Saturday”, and left with the title that they are certainly a band worth seeing live.Tweet
