The Darkness              Ginger Wildheart

The energy in the room is already super charged as Ginger and Co take to the stage, and I can only describe the bands performance as outstanding as the set progresses, I have no words, they are just THAT good.
Speeding through a gleaming set, with the likes of the fantastically odd paced, 'Taste Aversion', 'Over Easy' and finishing up brilliantly with Wildhearts track 'Do The Channel Bop' which the crowd lap up, bounce and sing along to. All in all a stupendously great support to open with.

As we are plunged into darkness, (of course!) at around 9pm, the energy has not subsided any. Justin is the first to enter the stage, with just a single spotlight illuminating the cat suited figure and after a couple of minutes, the rest of the band join him.

It's just one big party tonight, the atmosphere is very light and lively as we are entertained every inch of the way by front man Justin, with his ever so slightly Russell Brand esque campness, you can't help but be transfixed with him. The great tracks just keep on coming in the form of 'One Way Ticket', 'Get Your Hands Off My Woman', where we see Justin do an impressive head stand infront of the drums while Dan power slides past!, the beautiful 'Love Is Only A Feeling' and the lively 'Friday Night'.

The band take the time to chat to their loyal fans in between tracks and round the night off perfectly with 'The Best Of Me', and 'Love On The Rocks With No Ice'.
B A really enjoyable evening from start to finish, that leaves you wanting more!

Ginger Wildheart 4/5
