The Lights go down and a purple haze of light is cast across the stage as the lads take their places creating a series of silhouettes but within moments chaos erupts with a frenzy of lights resulting in the crowd going mental from the get go, fuelling the band’s energies to go higher and this was just the first track of their set.

The Wildhearts 25 years ago a 16 year old version of me found a band call The Wildhearts and nothing was the same again. I lost count of the amount of times I saw them live, and ‘Earth vs the Wildhearts’ still remains one of my fave albums of all time.
