REVIEW: Leeds Festival – Braham Park, Leeds (24-26 08/17)

August bank holiday means only one thing – Leeds Festival AKA my favourite weekend of the entire year.

Although I wasn’t as enthusiastic about this year’s line-up, it didn’t stop me heading down to Braham Park early on Thursday morning to set up camp all ready for a messy weekend ahead.
When I arrived, I headed straight to Green camp (which has turned into its own tradition), and by 2pm the tent was erected, the airbed was up and the drinking had started – what was now going to be my home for the next 4 days was finally starting to feel bearable.

We sat drinking and playing card games with our new tent neighbours until the early evening before going to explore around the various DJ sets dotted around the campsites. These first few hours had already set the bar high for the rest of the weekend – and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

Friday morning was a relaxing one, I started my day off with a cider and lazed around until 5pm. Eventually I made the trek the to the arena where I sat on the bank and watched Blossoms whilst eating some surprisingly tasty chicken noodles. After a short while Liam Gallagher performed. He swanned onto the main stage wearing a zipped-up parka jacket and took complete control of the crowd. I’m not overly familiar with Liam’s own music but he ended with Oasis’Wonderwall’ – judging by the crowd’s reaction, I imagine that this was the highlight for many people.

Muse were headlining on Friday night but I made the unpopular decision to go and see Halsey and Marshmello instead. I had wanted to see Halsey for a while now and she exceeded my expectations in the NME Tent – her performance was electric and she really knows how to put on a show. I had only recently started listening to Marshmello so it was a last-minute decision to watch his set. I felt like the bass in the Radio One Dance Tent wasn’t as good as it could’ve been and that had affected the overall performance but I still enjoyed it. We had left 15 minutes early to catch the end of Neck Deep’s set at the Lock Up Tent, luckily for us we managed to catch ‘A Part Of Me’, ‘Can’t Kick Up the Roots’ and ‘Where Do We Go When We Go’. It wasn’t my first time seeing Neck Deep and they have remained one of my all-time favourite bands.

Saturday morning started very like Friday morning, kicking off the day with a cider and a game of cards. I made my way to the arena at about 2pmwhere I sat and watched Rat Boy and Circa Waves. Some of my favourite times at Leeds are sat on the grass having a drink and watching all types of people getting on with the day in their own ways. At 5pm I made my way to the NME Tent to watch Anne Marie, Lethal Bizzle and Subfocus consecutively. The energy at this stage is constantly at a high – which is why it is one of my favourite tents. By the end of Subfocus I was shattered, but the evening was still young and there was a lot of fun to be had. We made our way to get food before catching half of Bastille’s set at the main stage, followed by Kasabian. We made our way closer to the front to watch Kasabian and the atmosphere was one to remember. One thing is for certain – no one should underestimate their performance. After Kasabian ended, I grabbed myself some chilli nachos and a beer before I started to head back to the tent, it didn’t take long for me to get distracted by the DJ sets and I ended up dancing into the early morning.Leeds Festival 2017 - Rebellious Noise Review

We kicked off the final day with our new-found tradition of cider and a card game before we started to make way to the arena, the weather had stayed fair all weekend but Sunday was especially hot. We got to the area at 1pm and we were just in time to watch Moose Blood. I have watched Moose Blood perform all around the country but it’s a band that I never get bored of watching. Although they were on stage early in the day, they still had a decent crowd.
After Moose Blood we watched The Pretty Reckless whilst sat on the grass again. After The Pretty Reckless finished playing, we went over to the Dance Tent to watch Lany. I have been listening to Lany’s debut album on repeat since it was released in June 2017 and their set was really laid back and chilled.

Leeds Festival 2017 - Rebellious Noise Review
It was time for the final two performances of Leeds Festival 2017Major Lazer and Eminem. Major Lazer hit the stage at 7.30pm and didn’t stop putting on a show until they were over – A mix of new and old remixes kept the energy within the crowd high and the atmosphere was lively. It was a great set up for Eminem who was coming to the stage at 9.30pm.
As it got closer to Eminem’s set, the crowd was getting noticeably crammed in – thousands upon thousands of people flooded around the Main Stage ready to see the King of Hip Hop perform. Half way through the set we decided to move further back, but this was a challenge, Eminem was by far the most popular set all festival. There was people who couldn’t even see the stage because they were so far away that were still standing and singing along. Although Sunday evening is always a bit sad as it means that the festival is coming to its end, it was certainly a great finale.

Overall, Leeds 2017 exceeded my expectations and my personal highlights were Halsey, Neck Deep, Major Lazer and Eminem. Leeds 2018 can’t come quick enough.

REVIEW: STATE CHAMPS, NEWCASTLE O2 ACADEMY (19/09/2015)

State Champs announced their first UK headline tour a few months back and it was certainly the talk of social media, especially as people started to create theories as to who was going to support. Once it was officially announced that Knuckle Puck and Roam were supporting I could already tell it was going to be a killer night.

I travelled to Newcastle’s O2 academy to see them perform, Roam were first on stage and the room was already filling up. I was relatively new to Roam’s music as I first listened to them a month or so before I saw them live, nevertheless, I still fell in love with their melodic pop-punk vibes. As Roam were going to be followed by Knuckle Puck, and of course State Champs I went into the gig feeling like they were going to be almost unknown to the room, but the amount of people moshing and singing to their lyrics actually surprised me- they were definitely more than just a warm up act. Roam are one of UKs up and coming pop punk bands and I’m sure they’re going to gain a lot more success and recognition in the next few years. I wouldn’t hesitate to go and see them one of their own headline tours.

KP

Knuckle Puck was next and I’m no stranger to seeing them live, they’ve toured with some of my favourite bands, played festivals like SlamDunk 2015 and they’ve never seemed to disappoint yet. Each set they play is always rough and ready but unforgettable at the same time. Again the amount of fans already in the crowd was amazing, but not surprising considering the release (and popularity) of their long awaited debut album, Copacetic, which I reviewed a few months ago. As I say in all my KP reviews, ‘No Good’ is always a personal highlight of their set and one that seems to be enjoyed by the entire room.

After a short set change it was time for State Champs to hit the stage. I spent the evening watching from near the back and it was amazing to see the crowd from that perspective as I’m usually amongst the action. With a mix of material from their older albums, especially The Finer Things and newer material from their upcoming release of Around The World everyone seemed so captivated and the room sung back in perfect timings. There was no doubt that their older songs was a lot more popular but that’s probably just because of how successful that album was- it was definitely the album that gave State Champs a good name.

Personally, I’m not really a fan of encores unless I’m in a huge venue as I don’t really see the point in them, but when State Champs came back on stage after they ‘left’ to play Losing Myself and Elevated (which was by far the most popular song amongst the crowd) it was very well received. The room was tiny so it made the entire experience a lot more enjoyable and intimate. I’m very excited to be able to hear State Champs new album in full in the coming months.

REVIEW: Moose Blood, The Brickyard 09/09/2015

When Moose Blood released their first material in 2013 they certainly made an impact on the UKs emo scene, quickly attracting fans from all over the country, they toured alongside the likes of Gnarwolves and then eventually embarked on a tour of their own in aid of their debut album, “I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time”. I first saw Moose Blood in January when myself and a few friends made a 4 hour journey to London’s Borderline venue. It was their biggest gig to date and there was a surreal atmosphere in the rather small room, next time I saw them was Slamdunk Festival North, then Leeds Fest and now they finally came and played my local venue, a rarity to say the least.

11996957_1633502900264443_1338663325_n

Moose Blood finished their tour in Carlisle and I was somewhat nervous about it- crowds at The Brickyard never seem to be as enthusiastic or enjoyable as other gigs and it’s actually quite embarrassing, but this time was different. I finally thought The Brickyard was making a good name for themselves, the room was full, the crowd was singing as loud as they could and mosh pits were opened during nearly every song. They started their set with Cherry, a slower, calmer song that most bands would usually play mid set after the crowd had gone wild from the start. As they progressed through their set the crowd got more and more into it, as did the band. They played all their most favoured songs like Boston, Anyway, Gum and Swim Down which the entire room loved. One thing I liked about the evening is that they played Kelly Kapowski, a song they usually miss off the set list but all-in-all was very well received.

Eddy (lead singer and guitarist) is also one of the most polite band members I think I’ve ever encountered, after nearly every song he thanked the crowd for their continuing support- it really makes the band seem worthy of the success they’re gaining. The only downside to the night was that their set was very short, about 40 minutes of Moose Blood and roughly an hour and a half of support (which the majority of the crowd were less than enthusiastic about). Moose Blood are a must-see band and I’ll always try my best to see them on tour. Their stage presence is captivating and (in my opinion) their sound makes them one of the best emo bands on the scene! I’m very excited to hear new material they release in the future.

REVIEW: Knuckle Puck – Copacetic

knucklepuckalbumIt seems to have been a never-ending wait for Knuckle Puck’s debut album, ‘Copacetic’. It’s been 4 years of EPs and collaborations for the band, but KP are finally back and this time they come with their first full length album.

After listening to the album in full a couple of times I realised Knuckle Puck clearly took the time to fine tune every song and make sure every detail was perfect. They set the bar high with the popularity of their EPs, which allowed them to tour with bands such as Seaway, Neck Deep, Man Overboard, Modern Baseball and play at festivals like Slamdunk and Warped tour. There was definitely some level of pressure to deliver a strong full length album.

They mix quintessential pop punk vibes and then add their own twist, allowing the band to create their own sound – definitely making them original and different from the rest. The growth in popularity for pop punk has certainly worked in Knuckle Puck’s favour but they’ve managed to accumulate fans across the world and create (what I think is) one of the best albums of the year.

‘Ponder’ is a great example of how KP are shaping their own form of pop punk, Joe Taylor (vocals) effortlessly makes transitions between shouting the lyrics and then singing ‘everything is copacetic’ which sounds like a different person completely. Although Ponder is slower and very short it certainly isn’t forgotten about on the album.

Their song, In Your Crosshairs has definitely won some fans over, the way Joe’s vocals work alongside the guitars and the subtle backing vocals it ties together so well to create yet another unusual track.

In KP’s earlier works they focused on creating catchy tunes within relatively short songs but this album demonstrates a mixture of short and longer length tracks. ‘Untitled’ is really different for Knuckle Puck as the song almost reaches 8 minutes and contained a mixture of repetitive vocals and lengthy instrumentals.

It’s fair to say that this album is a big step up from their already popular extended plays and it was a well anticipated album. Knuckle Puck are certainly leading the way of pop punk by keeping the genre fresh, and it’s got me excited to see what other bands like The Wonder Years, Neck Deep and Roam have in store in the next year.

Blitz Kids announce split

Just a few weeks ago Blitz Kids announced they were taking a break from touring to focus on writing new material, ensuring fans they would be back soon. Since then, they released a statement informing people that they have actually decided to finish as a band, much to the disappointment of many. Their upcoming tour has been cancelled and they will be doing a few farewell shows around the country.

The statement was published on the band’s facebook and said,

I don’t want to talk in clichés or metaphor, so I’m just going to come straight out with it. It is with heavy hearts but heads held high that we must announce it is time for us to take our leave.

We have always said that we are friends, first and foremost, before a band. And it is as friends that we have reached this decision to end this incredible adventure that we started 8 years ago. Between then and now, this band has taken us to beautiful places that we’d never have experienced without it, and introduced us to people who we consider family and friends for life.

We’ve worked with some amazingly passionate and extremely tolerant people during out time as a band. They showed faith in us when we doubted ourselves, and they gave us a chance when we perhaps didn’t deserve one. We are eternally indebted to every single one of you.

But none of what we have achieved together would have been possible without you, the fans. We’ve gone from playing to the sound guy and his mates at pubs in Nantwich, to going on tour with our favourite bands, and stepping out on festival stages that we only dreamed of playing as kids growing up. You have taken us on the journey of a lifetime, and we will always love you.

We’re sorry, but the upcoming tour has been cancelled, and tickets will be refunded. We will be playing some farewell shows that will be announced soon. We hope to see you there to celebrate what have surely been then best years of our lives.

So long, and thanks for all the beers.

Never die.

Jono, Joe, Nic and Matt

We at Rebellious Noise would like to wish all members of the band all the best for the future. For more on Blitz Kids, check out my review of their show in Manchester from October last year here.

REVIEW: SLAMDUNK FESTIVAL – NORTH, LEEDS (23/5/15)

This year’s SlamDunk was definitely going to be unforgettable, marking the 10th anniversary of the festival, SlamDunk was determined to make this the biggest and best festival yet. I headed over to Leeds to get involved.

Last year SlamDunk North was held in Leeds University, this year it upgraded to being spread out across the centre of Leeds, main stage was located in Millennium Square with a capacity of 8000 whilst other stages were found in the O2, Leeds Beckett University, carparks and backrooms of bars.

The first thing I headed to was the Neck Deep signing at the Kerrang! tent, I was the first in the queue but I was just the start of a line of hundreds of people. It was the only signing I was able to attend as all the other clashed with different sets I wanted to go to..

Signing

The first band on the main stage was Set It Off and they certainly weren’t short of energy. After recently kicking Austin (Bassist) out of the band I felt like SIO were really trying to prove their success to the crowd, although the crowd was small and quiet it didn’t stop Cody (vocals) from getting them moving. They did an unusual cover of Ariana Grande’s ‘Problem’ and their single Why Worry seemed to be the most well-known song within the crowd.

Set It Off

Cody jumped off the stage a couple of times to come right up to the barrier, he even managed to walk on top of the crowd for a while (until he fell). Overall it was a nice start to the day and showed how much potential the rest of the day could have.

Set It Off 2

After SIO, I made my way to the MacBeth stage where Knuckle Puck were playing, a considerable smaller stage but there was definitely a lot more fans crammed into a small carpark. A lot more people singing back to Knuckle Puck and it felt like SlamDunk was actually kicking off now. Personally No Good made the entire set for me, the way the crowd reacted to this song was different to all the rest and it really got me excited for the rest of the day. Even people at the back started moshing around to it. Neck Deep are close friends of Knuckle Puck and Ben Barlow did guest vocals on Your Back Porch.

Knucklepuck

Beartooth started not long after Knuckle Puck ended so I headed over to the o2 Academy, but with a fairly long queue to get in I didn’t think I’d be able to see all their set. Luckily I got in just as they started, after I saw Beartooth on Thursday night in Carlisle (Check out my review of it here) they were definitely one of the bands I most looking forward to seeing- and they didn’t disappoint. With the biggest crowd I’d seen so far and mosh pits starting all over the room they were certainly entertaining the crowd.

Beartooth

Neck Deep were next on the main stage and I first saw them live at SlamDunk 2014 so I knew I had to see them play the main stage this year. Following the release of their newest single ‘Can’t Kick Up The Roots’ it seemed that many people were hoping to see this live. Neck Deep had the biggest crowd by far and people were singing back louder than ever. When they began playing A Part Of Me the atmosphere changed from being one of the most brutal crowds I’ve experienced to the most relaxed (and even emotional) crowd, people were singing back louder than ever and it was a song that everyone just experiences and appreciates for its simplicity. Laura Whiteside even made an appearance. They never fail to impress a crowd.

Neck Deep

I hung around at the main stage for Lower Than Atlantis. They undoubtedly had a huge following there for them and their set was exciting and really enjoyable to watch. Mike (vocals) took the time out to say that the band really appreciated the amount of support they received after they released their self-titled album as it was a make-or-break point for the future of LTA. The most moving part of the set was when the band left Mike to do Another Sad Song, this was a highlight for me as it is a personal favourite of theirs.

LTA

Moose Blood was held at the smallest stage but it was completely packed out, and totally worth standing around in a room that felt about 100 degrees (not even exaggerating). Moose Blood was guaranteed to be one of the roughest, craziest shows of the day. The set felt more intimate than the others from the day and was definitely one of the most enjoyable. There was no barrier at the stage and it added to the intimacy and Eddy (vocals) even sustained a nose injury after a fan crowdsurfed straight into the mic. Overall Moose Blood are a must-see band and I’m glad I got to see them at SD.

Moose Blood

The last set I went to was The Wonder Years who headlined the MacBeth stage, and it was the best end to one of the best days. The most ‘tame’ crowd by far but by far the best band I saw. Soupy (vocals) was inspiring the crowd throughout the set and they played 15 songs from various albums. They ended the set by announcing they were working on new material and they’d be back soon, I’ll definitely try and head to the next show they do in the UK.

SlamDunk festival is one of the best day-festivals in the UK, the lineup never disappoints and bands from all over the world are attracted. Many of the acts are even friends from touring or writing together so it feels really- connected. I’m already excited for SDF16!

Blitz Kids announce last tour before going on a break

After nearly 10 years of constant writing, recording and touring, Blitz Kids announced their final tour for a long time whilst they take a break – not to worry though, they’re using the time to write a new record and they’ll be back once that’s finished.

Announced yesterday, fans had mixed emotion as many were left disappointed that the tour was so short and major cities were missed off the map. Joey (vocals) addressed this issue with a tweet: “We have amazing fans and I hate disappointing people but we can’t play everywhere. I hope that you continue to show us as much love and dedication that you have done in the past, We’re going away to write/record another album and it’d be nice to have a worthy send off! x”
They’re heading out end of July and start of August so don’t miss them!

REVIEW: Beartooth – The Brickyard, Carlisle (21/05/15)

In the run up to this year’s Slam Dunk festival, Beartooth headed out across the UK to do a few warmup shows. It’s unusual for a band with any sort of recognition to come to Carlisle so when I found out Beartooth would be headlining it was essential for me to go. Supported by Dead Harts and The Color Morale (both of which are also playing Slam Dunk) it was definitely going to be one of The Brickyard’s most memorable nights.

Kicking off the night was Dead Harts from Sheffield. Although the room was almost empty it didn’t stop them trying their best to get the people who were there going, even if the crowd did seem less than enthusiastic about their set. They took an interesting approach to entertaining the room, Bax (vocals) actually walked into the crowd to sing a few songs in an attempt to encourage mosh pits and circle pits throughout every song. Overall the crowd made it difficult for Dead Harts to put on a proper show but they brought a lot of energy to the stage nonetheless.

As the night progressed the room began to slowly full up, but it was still only about half full by the time The Color Morale hit the stage. There was a much more positive response to their set and it finally seemed like the crowd were getting warmed up. Garret (vocals) made a special effort in between songs to interact with the crowd in an almost inspirational way, demonstrating how music pulls people together and creates communities by asking the people who have been influenced by music to raise their hand – this obviously sparked a positive reaction from the crowd. People seemed to be a lot more engaged to The Color Morale’s set and there seemed to be considerable more people who were singing along. It was definitely a good job they were there to warm the crowd up.

Finally it was Beartooth’s time on the stage, although it was a rather short set and they didn’t include an encore they certainly made the most of the time they had. The gig didn’t sell out but the turnout was still impressive for a metalcore band at The Brickyard. The majority of the songs were off their debut album Disgusting and they started off with ‘Relapsing’ and made their way through some of the most popular songs like ‘The Lines’ and ‘Beaten in Lips’– the energy was electric and the room was taken over by mosh pits- there was even a couple of crowd surfers. What seemed to be the crowd’s favourite song was ‘Body Bag’ which they played last. Crowd participation was also really important to Beartooth and they thanked the crowd for allowing them to do a tour across the UK. It was nice to see a band being appreciated in such a small city in (what seems like) an unknown part of England but it’s also nice being appreciated by the band themselves. There are enough good bands that play at Carlisle and if we’re lucky, other bands might follow in Beartooth’s footsteps. Hopefully this won’t be the last we see of Beartooth and they’ll head back this way soon.

REVIEW: Enter Shikari (Plus Support) – Barrowland Ballroom, Glasgow (21/2/15)

I’d always been told that Enter Shikari are one of Britain’s best live band and with this in mind, I knew I couldn’t miss out on seeing them this tour. I travelled to Glasgow to experience one of the best nights of my life.

Although I got to the venue a few minutes late the room was still only half full when the first support, Fatherson came onto stage. They seemed to be the opposite to Shikari as they brought a more chilled out, indie rock vibe to the night, which almost seemed like they didn’t fit into the night… but they were vocally and musically very strong and they didn’t hesitate to try and warm the crowd up the best they could.

IMG-20150302-WA0002

 

The next support was a band called AllUsOnDrugs from Leeds, I was excited about hearing these guys live after listening to their self-titled EP. Although AllUsOnDrugs are more grunge/alt rock I thought they were excellent live and they brought so much energy to the stage, picking up the crowd’s attention whilst they were at it. I’m very excited to see what this band do in the future.

 

The third and final support were Feed The Rhino, from the moment they set foot on stage you could tell these were a clear favourite out of the supports.

IMG-20150302-WA0000

It almost felt like Feed The Rhino could’ve been the headliners. A shirtless Lee Tobin (frontman) came on stage to conduct a high intensity set which got everyone in the room involved. They were definitely the best band for bringing the energy to the room, they even directed a huge wall of death halfway through which got every single person in the room charging towards others.

IMG-20150302-WA0001

 

The build up to Enter Shikari’s set was a show in itself, 10 minute countdown of a dance song mashup which increased the excitement in the room as we got closer and closer to ‘show starts in 0 minutes’. As it got nearer and nearer, the traditional Scottish chant ‘here we, here we, here we fucking go’ quickly spread across the room.

When Shikari walked onto the stage, everything was pitch black except for their cool light show that enhanced the music. Rou (frontman) calmly stood at the front of the stage and began to say ‘This is an appeal, to the struggling and striving, stakeholders of this planet, this floating rock we call earth’, The Appeal and the Mindsweep I was an obvious opener and it was an experience like no other. The whole room united together to talk back to Rou as loud as they could. Once the song really got going the whole room basically turned into one huge moshpit. As they worked their way through a 90 minute set, the crowd didn’t stop at any point, everyone was there for the exact same reason and that was to go mental. Personal favourites of the night were Destabilise, Gandhi mate, Gandhi and Anaesthetist. Between songs the room was completely silent which gave Rou the opportunity to give speeches about how important our existence was and how grateful the band were that we chose to see them tonight and not some band like One Direction (haha). Shikari never failed to get the crowd going again and again and the room was electric for the whole night. Before they came back on for their encore, the room simultaneously started singing the Flower Of Scotland (something I was unfamiliar with) but the atmosphere in Glasgow was immense and unforgettable.

IMG-20150302-WA0004

Rou came back on stage alone, he sat at the piano and began Dear Future Historians. It was so unbelievable how much a crowd can change, the room was completely still and everyone was more focussed on singing back to Rou rather than moshing and bumping into everything possible. People were sat on other peoples shoulders and others had their phone torches out- a very unforgettable moment. The calm atmosphere stopped after Dear Future Historians, when they performed Slipshod and Sssnakepit, which were definitely some of the crowd’s favourites and seemed to be very long awaited. After the night drew to a close, everyone was battered, bruised and exhausted but it was 100% worth it, it’s very true when people say these guys are one of the best live bands and they’re undeniably a band that you have to see live- you don’t even have to be a massive fan of Shikari to appreciate and enjoy the night. I won’t ever miss an opportunity to see Enter Shikari after that night.

REVIEW: You Me At Six – Manchester Arena, (13/2/15)

Throughout the whole of the All Time Low/You Me At Six co-headline tour its been up to ATL to open and YMAS to close, so after over 2 hours of waiting, it was finally the turn of this Surrey based band to hit the stage. Although it was a co-headline tour there is an underlying worry for either bands that one might seem a lot more popular than the other, but this wasn’t the case for ATL and YMAS, each seemed to have the same level of support, which would take a lot of the pressure off both of the bands.

004

The build up to You Me At Six’s set was amazing, over a minute of dramatic music and flashing lights. As each band member walked onto the stage the level of excitment within the crowd started to build. It was when Josh walked on to the stage that the proper screaming started, the music then turned into Room To Breathe from their most recent album, ‘Cavalier Youth’ was an immense song to begin with because it was such a huge hit in 2014.

As YMAS worked their way through a lengthy set with a good mix of old and new songs, one thing did stand out- You Me At Six seemed to have a lot more pyrotechnics and an overall bigger production. Fireworks through multiple songs and even two confetti showers, no one was complaining but personally it felt like YMAS were more of a headline than a co-headline. They’re stage presence was one that really captivated the audience and Josh gave a lot of eye contact to the crowd standing at the front whilst he’s performing- but he doesn’t just focus on the people at arms reach from him, he did pay attention to the people up in the seats encouraging them to stand up and that ‘no one can tell you what to do, this is your night’.

005

You’d expect the crowd to be running out of energy as the night progressed but after YMAS came back for their encore the room had more energy than ever! The encore was a mix of what seemed to be three of the most popular YMAS songs, Bite My Tongue, Fresh Start Fever and Lived a Lie. Everyone was putting all their effort into making these songs as spectacular as they could and ensuring the night ended on a high. The All Time Low/You Me At Six co-headline tour was well anticipated by many but was definitely worth the wait. A night to remember!
