Great band, too bad they have immature fans
I went to this event with my friend who's never been to a concert before. I'm a bit sad this had to be her first experience. We loved Wallows' new album and were super excited for the show so we went earlier as we wanted to stand closer to the stage and enjoy a band we were really looking forward to meet. We queued for 3 hours but unfortunately we could not stay in our spot for more than the opening band. The pushing and shoving was bad to begin with but the moment Wallows came on stage it was unbearable. Everyone was trying to get as close to the stage as possible and was hitting people around them with their hand trying to get a better picture or video. I know its not supposed to be comfortable but this was something like I've never experienced before; at one point the crowd was literally shifting from one side to another almost to the point of people falling on top of each other. The only reason I can think this happened is because the fans (mostly early teen girls) went to the concert to see the boys and film and take pictures of them instead of actually enjoying the music. This is sad and makes it hard for people who actually want to enjoy the music and atmosphere. So for everyone that wants to see them my advice would be to make sure they have the will power to deal with all described before. Other than that the boys were great and they are very good live.
To end the review on a positive note, after we left our spot closer to the stage as both of us could not take the shoving anymore we went towards the side of the venue to watch the show, as it was less crowded. While dancing to one song we realised two of the opening band members were jamming behind us so we talked to them for a bit and took some pictures. They are very nice and super talented and wish to see more of their music soon.

Best Gig I’ve Ever Been To
I have been following this band for a while and instantly said that when they came to the uk I would see them I’m so happy I did the energy and way they performed was so engaging I didn’t want it to end. I will definitely be seeing again !!
