I’m going to try my best to keep this post short and sweet; however, when it comes to discussing a band with the two main members, who have such a bromance – Alex Turner and Miles Kane – how can you not feel extremely excited!
The Castlefield Bowl is an amazing, outside venue and has an amphitheatre-style about it, which gave such an overwhelming atmosphere to TLSP’s sold-out performance. The excitement in me was rapidly building, as I have really wanted to see them live ever since I had heard their first album ‘The Age of the Understatement’. It was the best feeling to listen to Turner and Kane, alongside their band members, at an outside venue, in Manchester – it felt like I had been transported to a festival-like gig in the middle of a major city.
When I thought my night could not get any better, a special guest, armed with a guitar, appeared on stage – it’s JOHNNY MARR! During the set, Marr joined TLSP for an exclusive cover of a song by Johnny Marr’s former band The Smiths – ‘Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me‘.
The Last Shadow Puppets’ performance was more than ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect‘ – if the electric covers of David Bowie were not enough, the string quartet added an extra unique edge to this well-loved band.
