Back in London town to bring some nostalgic indie anthems of the late noughties and beyond, Leeds very own The Pigeon Detectives brought a celebratory, crowd-pleasing performance to the O2 Forum in Kentish Town. One which took the roof of the Forum in fun-filled, frantic fashion, full of staple Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging meets Gavin and Stacey era indie anthems that still stand up as iconic tunes to this day, plus some newer material too.
Making their unexpected live return at this year's Reading & Leeds Festival as a last-minute booking to fill the Main Stage West two days prior to their Saturday mid-afternoon slot, Surrey pop-rockers You Me At Six were no late arrival, but rather the headlining act at the O2 Forum Kentish Town on the band's first full UK tour back since ‘Back Again’ world tour and the groups deserved Gunnersville Festival headliner slot back in 2019, in a world where live music never got stopped in its tracks.
There aren't many shows that are guaranteed to be a good time, but The Front Bottoms is one of them. Even if you end up losing your Oyster card and getting beer spilled on your new skirt, their heartfelt and upbeat punk could literally cure any blues. Tonight we see them headline the O2 Forum Kentish Town in London and one thing's for sure: no matter how big they get, they'll always put on an amazing, sincere show.
