Rock City has a spot in a variety of gig goers hearts, it is a particular venue. It’s hosted a few of the greatest bands on the planet and has a pure type of environment that crowds and bands alike feed off – even when the legendary sticky flooring have lengthy gone.
Feeder are a type of bands that love Rock City and every little thing that surrounds it, and it makes us really feel blessed to have this venue in Nottingham once you’re overhearing guys from Dublin saying, “I’m buzzing to be right here tonight, all of the individuals who stay right here have this on their doorstep, man!” It’s the sort of place that bands will always remember whilst they make that subsequent step to arenas.
For the Nottingham date of Feeder’s Tallulah tour, you simply know earlier than it even begins that it may be a banging present. They do not fiddle, and everyone seems to be already singing out their favorite Feeder tunes earlier than they arrive in straight with a brand new one within the form of ‘Youth’, forward of a few of the greater numbers like ‘Lost & Found’ and ‘Feeling the Moment’.
Feeder are in a type of distinctive positions the place they’ve such an excellent again catalogue that no-one would wish to be of their sneakers in the case of placing a set-list collectively. Naturally meaning they’ve not noted just a few massive tunes on this tour, but it surely definitely exhibits the religion that the band have of their new album in the case of the stay circuit – and who can blame them when it crashed into the charts on the high 5?
Three of the seven songs performed from the album, ‘Fear of Flying’, ‘Kite’ and ‘Tallulah’, present the band’s true longevity and their capacity to proceed reinventing themselves. These guys are actually outstanding and the bond that Taka Hirose and Grant Nicholas have is clearly proven on stage. Plus, the brand new stay members breathed new life into the already established tracks.
Hearing ‘Yesterday Went Too Soon’ and understanding it hasn’t been on any present on this tour but offers everybody such a buzz, and when it got here to ‘High’ it would as properly have been an opportunity for Grant to relaxation his voice and let the entire Rock City crowd do the work. Naturally, they “end” on ‘Buck Rogers’, do the compulsory “Good Night Rock City”, solely to re-enter a minute later for an encore that included one other new quantity within the excellent set place, ‘Blue Skies Blue’, and the satisfyingly predictable ‘Just A Day’. The actuality of this present positively lived as much as the expectation and extra.
