The Vaccines @ Manchester O2 Apollo

Embedded image permalink
Second row! Yessss!
Despite the large circle pit that streched from the left to right side of the Apollo it was incredible!
I had seen them twice before but never at one of their own gigs - Once at Radio 1's Hackney Weekend and supporting Arctic Monkeys. They came on quite late (for the Apollo anyway) at like 9.45pm which meant they only did an hour set, which was disapointing because we had to wait ages after the support acts finished at 9pm.
They had a few support acts, one of which was Deap Vally who I have been loving for the past few months. They really put on a solid performance for a fairly new band. The set was short but it got the crowd really pumped. The Vaccines came out and the crowd went insane - well we were just relieved they were actually coming after that wait. They started strong with No Hope and then into Wreckin Bar and Tiger Blood right after. One of the best parts of the night was All In White. It was powerful and took over the crowd. Everybody was singing along. The night ended with the brilliant Norgaard. Although the set was shorter than most would have liked, it was an amazing set by a band that won’t be playing the Apollo next time round, they'll be onto the arena!
Plus, I definitely got eye contact with Arni, result!
