Don’t give up on The Maine!

Last night, The Maine returned to the UK and impressed their highly dedicated fans at their show at the O2 Academy2 in Birmingham with an incredible performance!

The American band from Arizona came to Birmingham as part of the UK leg of the 8123 tour and two of our Brumoters got the chance to catch up with The Maine’s bassist Garrett Nickelsen and lead guitarist Jared Monaco, the interview for which will be available on October 13th!

The group consisting of Pat Kirch, Kennedy Brock, John O’Callaghan, Jared Monaco and Garrett Nickelsen (Left to Right) entertained all the fans that had packed themselves into the venue, with a range of old and new tracks, including ‘Misery’ and ‘Kiss and Sell.’

But before the lads graced the stage with their amazing performance, Nick Santino (ex-frontman for A Rocket to the Moon) and Lydia wowed the crowd with their support sets.

Although it was his first ever tour in the UK, Nick Santino had no nerves seeming to hold him back as his incredible stage presence held the audience’s attention throughout the entirety of his acoustic performance.

Lydia took the stage next, bringing with them an unbelievable amount of energy that left the crowd wanting more as they made sure to sing the lyrics back to the ecstatic group.

Then came the moment everybody had been waiting for, The Maine finally took to the stage causing the venue to erupt into cheers, obviously excited to see the lads pop across the pond once again as they broke out into a number of old and new tracks.

The lads’ energetic set featured a number of fan favourites and the only time the group slowed down was to interact and chat to their ecstatic and loud fans (though many ‘accent’ issues arose, like when lead singer John O’Callaghan mistook the words “Pretty Good” as “Grand Canyon” when speaking about their home state).

The highly talented band made sure to perform their hearts out and ensured that all those attending the event were thoroughly entertained, which rang true when the lads began to discuss a potential album release next year!

The Maine rounded off their incredible performance with a track from their first studio album in 2008: ‘We’ll All Be’, for which, both Nick Santino and Lydia graced the stage once again to help The Maine out and end the show with a bang!

We definitely recommend going to see The Maine live as they have the talent and an impressive setlist, which should have another few hits joining in as the lads are set to hit the recording studio next month! We have no doubts, that like they did last night, the group will keep you thoroughly entertained and leave you wanting more!

The group, consisting of Chris, Tyler, Danny and Cameron (Left to Right) made sure to keep the energetic crowd entertained and wanting more with a range of songs from their EP: ‘Anywhere’, including ‘Good Time Girl’ and ‘Not Another Song About Love’.

The impressive set also contained a number of hilarious sections where the band and the crowd laughed along with one another – like when the lads spoke to ‘god’ who was watching the show from above to hear the boys perform their ‘Grocery Store Rap’.

Although the group entertained and impressed with their relentless energy and catchy tunes, attendees were stood waiting for an hour for the first support act to arrive – though it is speculated that another support act skipped out on the show.

The group, more popularly known for supporting McBusted during their gigantic tour across the UK, sold out the venue with a range of older and newer fans who shared appreciation over the talent of the group and the electric atmosphere showed how ecstatic they were to see the boys live!

Hollywood Ending started their magnificent set with one of their first singles ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ and rounded it off with their newest single ‘Freak Like Me’!
