We’d cross Bridges for EofE!

On November 15th, EofE returned to Birmingham for their very own headline tour, much to the delight of their dedicated fans, most of which waited over 8 hours to see the lads perform.

The Black Country based band came to perform a sold-out show in Birmingham as part of their Unleashed Tour, which comes after the lads supported McBusted and The Vamps only month before.

The group, consisting of Luke, Nicky, Tom, Reece and last, but certainly not least Dan (Left to Right), entertained the highly dedicated group of fans in the sold-out, packed venue with a range of original and cover tracks, including ‘If Only Your Boyfriend Knew’ and Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’.

However, before the young pop rocks graced the stage with their incredible performance and addicting stage presence, Of Kings and Captains, The Fuse and McFly’s Danny Jones’ sister VIX, all of which wowed the ecstatic crowd with their support sets.

The venue became completely deafening when the lads finally emerged on stage, kicking off with their debut single Lust, which reached number eight in the UK rock singles chart.

The lads energetic set featured a number of incredible tracks, all of which seemed to be fan favourites, judging by the crowds reactions as they erupted into cheers at the beginning of each track and proceeded to scream the lyrics back to the boys throughout.

The incredibly talented band made sure that the crowd were thoroughly entertained with a short rendition of Fall Out Boy’s ‘Sugar, we’re goin’ down’ straight after their lively performance of their own track ‘Kiss me like you mean it’ and a number of other tracks!

EofE rounded off their amazing performance with their newest release ‘Bridges’, which is available to download for free on the bands website – So make sure you check that out and download it while you can!

We definitely recommend going to see the EofE lads live as they have a bright future ahead of them, with a possible debut album on the way and an already impressive arsenal of tracks; no doubt it’ll be an incredible night much like this one!

Everything’s All Right with FutureProof

In a huge send-off to a fellow band member, FutureProof performed a packed Gig/Party at the O2 Islington Academy in London and thoroughly entertained their ecstatic fans, along with other guests who were invited along to perform.

FutureProof, consisting of Kiran, Jonni and their now, ex-bandmate Charles, who will be missed! (Left to Right) entertained the crowd in the middle of the gig – we suppose they wanted to party the rest of the night away to properly send Charlie off – which was well deserved after their incredible performance, which rounded off their UK tour!

Embedded image permalink

Joining FutureProof and performing throughout the afternoon were a number of amazing acts, such as Jake Sims, Canary Swing, Rewind, Tich, In Hindsight, Kingsland Road and the headliners of the party, Loveable Rogues!

The bass-pop trio that is FutureProof shared their relentless energy and fantastic performance with the eager crowd – some of which had been queuing to see the group’s last gig with band-mate Charlie since 8am!

The group made sure to include fan favourite’s ‘Good Vibes’, ‘Party Hard’ and ‘Everything’s Alright’ into their setlist, which obviously gained a positive response from the fans who proceeded to scream the lyrics back to the slightly emotional lads.

Although Charlie has now officially left the group, Jonni and Kiran promised the fans that this will not be the last we see of the lads and we sure hope not!

We definitely recommend that you see these boys on tour at your next given opportunity as they’re incredible live with a number of catchy tunes in their arsenal.

All about McBusted!

After facing their own demons in their own band counterparts and selling out a number of shows across the UK (including three already held in Birmingham alone), the year old band, McBusted triumphed at their fourth and last show in Birmingham!

McBusted – the joint collaboration between one of our favourite group’s McFly and 2/3 of our childhood obsession Busted – performed at the LG Arena in Birmingham last night, much to the excitement of the energetic crowd!

Danny, Dougie, Matt, James, Tom and Harry (Left to Right) entertained the crowd immensely from beginning to end, with an array of Busted and McFly singles, including ‘Air Hostess’ & ‘Five Colours In Her Hair’, a Jackson 5 cover – which featured some pretty smooth moves from the lads, as well as a bunch of much loved innuendos and dirty jokes!

With a line-up of McFly and Busted members, it was obvious that the lads were going to pull out all the stops. However, unlike the previous Birmingham shows, which featured a number of songs on top of a UFO above the sound desk.

That’s right people, McBusted performed on a UFO.

 The last Birmingham show were left to question where the UFO had disappeared to, as many of us had spoken so highly of this section of the show!

However, not all was lost as the Busted boys showed up on stage in a DeLorean (and we’ll forever wonder whether it was the real one… if so, we’re jealous!)

And three inflatible boobs turned up during their performance of ‘Year 3000’ – Probably wasn’t the best show for the young people attending.

The relentless energy from the McBusted group was shared by their highly intense and dedicated fans as everyone in the venue screamed, sang and cheered to their hearts content.

The sixsome rounded off their incredible setlist with McFly’s ‘All About You’ and Busted’s ‘Crashed The Wedding’, which has us oldies reminiscing about the good ‘ol days, while still singing and dancing along.

With a McBusted album on the way, we wish the boys all the best in the future, whether that be in their respected groups or McBusted!

And we definitely recommend that you see them at your next given opportunity!
