Rated 5 out of 5 by Hillychoo from I'm not a Delain virgin anymore! Having seen NMA the previous night, now it was off to the Engine Rooms in Southampton to see Delain. I have been waiting a long time for this moment, and boy what a gig! With support from Kobra and the lotus, who played a short and sweet set, then came Evergrey, whom I was not familiar with, though certainly am now. They were brilliant, Thomas Englund has such a great voice. Then the main attraction, and wow, took my breath away as soon as they struck the first chord. It was like listening to the cd's in the comfort of my own home, they were on fire. I was there with my brother, who was struck with how as a band they can play with such finesse, upping and slowing the tempo, changing key seamlessly. Came away still humming the tunes. Cannot wait to see them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LondonRocker from Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! I have been waiting to see Delain for a long time now. I always seemed to miss them on the rare occasions that they have gigged in the UK. Then they turn up at my favourite venue, The Koko! This gig exceeded my expectations on every level. If you are a fan of this sort of music you will not be disappointed. I saw Nightwish in Milan earlier this year which was brilliant, this was better! Thank you Delain and please come again, soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AndyM from Great band As a listener and purchaser of Delain CDs I guess I may be a little bias in my opinion but I have never seen them live before. So glad I went, they sounded great and look good on stage too with a good set list spanning their career. Charlottes vocals were spot on and the sound quality was very good. I'm surprised these guys aren't playing bigger venues over here considering they are promoting their 5th album, but glad I got a chance to see them at a fairly small venue before they really hit the big time. Look forward to seeing them again next time they tour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gabby1511 from Best Delain concert! Probably my fifth time seeing Delain over the last few years and this was the best setlist yet with all the greatest from the last ten years with new tracks from Moonbathers. Fantastic atmosphere, great performance as always and venue was nice and intimate. Can't wait for the next gig!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bearmaker from What a first gig at a new venue Lovely "cosy" venue with a real sense of intimacy with the bands. Acoustics were great. Staff were very impressive - friendly, welcoming but above all helpful and professional.
