As I mentioned a couple of days ago, New Found Glory brought the Pop Punk’s Not Dead Tour to our shores and Steph and I toodled along to the first of two London shows* in The Forum.
Now, this is going to be a biased review because I bloody love New Found Glory. I thought I should probably throw that out there from the beginning just so you know.
Taking to the stage at about 9.30pm and not leaving till gone 11pm they powered through every highlight of their back catalogue you would want to hear, sprinkled with only a couple of tracks from their new album, Resurrection. It was like the ultimate greatest hits set. Some feat when you consider they now have eight full length albums and a handful of EPs to choose material from.
Hayley Williams of Paramore even joined the band on stage just before their encore for My Friends over You. Bouncing around on stage like a Duracell bunny. It wasn’t just Williams that was full of energy though; the entire atmosphere was completely electric from start to finish.
I bought myself a Nike+ Fuel Band a little while ago, now I know this may seem completely unrelated but I can assure you there is a link here. I achieved my highest Fuel score EVER the day of this show. I think that proves how much I enjoyed it by how much I was dancing! So thanks for that boys 🙂 ha.
Loved every minute of it.
