As Feeder took to the stage, the anticipation reached fever pitch. Launching into their set with the explosive ‘ELF’, they immediately commanded the attention of everyone in the venue. A bold move to open the show with a song from an as yet unreleased album, but it worked so well. From there, the band took the audience on a musical journey through their extensive catalog, blending classic hits with newer tracks seamlessly.

Songs like ‘Feeling a Moment’ and ‘Just the Way I'm Feeling’ resonated with fans, evoking a sense of nostalgia while still feeling fresh and relevant. The band's energy was infectious, with frontman Grant Nicholas's vocals soaring above the driving rhythms and blistering guitar riffs.

The setlist was expertly crafted, offering a balance of high-energy rockers like ‘Buck Rogers’ and more introspective moments such as ‘Tangerine’. There was a heavy dose on new songs intertwined in the show, highlighting how proud the band are of their new work. Whilst we have yet to hear the new record, live these songs worked so well and just increased everyone’s anticipation for the new release.

As the night drew to a close, Feeder treated fans to an encore that was nothing short of epic. ‘Soldiers of Love’ and ‘Just a Day’ brought the evening to a triumphant conclusion, leaving the crowd cheering for more.
