Live Review: Enter Shikari at London Alexandra Palace

It was an amazing night at London Alexandra Palace as three of the best bands the UK has to offer took to the stage. First of all, the venue is like no other with a brass band welcoming fans towards the room Enter Shikari was playing. Astroid Boys took to the stage first as the grime/rock outfit totally made an impact on the crowd with the likes of Dirt and Razz from their debut album Broke. Their presence on stage was superb throughout the set and you could just tell that they deserved their spot on this iconic stage. These boys have plenty of potential still and were the perfect opening act on the night.

Next up was Lower Than Atlantis as they played the likes of Had Enough from their latest album Safe In Sound and Get Over It. Lead singer Mike Duce certainly knew what he was doing up there and engaged with every single of his fans providing amazing vocals. With LTA recently announcing a UK tour, it is no wonder why these guys are tipped to be one of the biggest bands in the UK.

Last up was Enter Shikari and as soon as you saw lead singer Rou Reynolds take to the stage you just knew you were in for a good night. The St Albans band lived up to their name as began with The Sights from their latest album The Spark. They also played a lot of older songs such as Anything Can Happen in the Next Half Hour…¬†mixed with the likes of Airfield from their latest release which provided the perfect mix. The lights at the venue were particularly impressive as it really felt almost futuristic at times. Enter Shikari ended on Live Outside during their encore which is a track that’s been a real hit for them this year and arguably created extra fans across the country. Overall it was an incredible night of British talent and each band deserved their spot at the magnificent London Alexandra Palace.
