People underestimate the value of a good live show supporting act. Being stood in front of an audience that is there not necessarily to see you perform; the pressure is on. For the US-based rock ‘n’ roll band, aliensdontringdoorbells opened for the English pop-indie band Scouting For Girls, and to set the record straight, ADRD has done a phenomenal job.
Dido headed to the Brighton Centre on the 4th of December as part of her first worldwide tour in 15 years. As well as performing material from her latest album, ‘Still on My Mind’, the singer delivered excellent performances of her timeless hits such as ‘Thank You’, ‘White Flag’ and ‘Life for Rent’.
November 20 saw the final performance for the month long ‘Ride Again’ tour, headlined by Shakespears Sister. The group returned to its most recognisable membership of Siobhan Fahey and Marcella Detroit, when the pair reunited last year after a 25 year break. Since then they have released the compilation album ‘Singles Party’ in July this year, followed by the ‘Ride Again’ EP in October, their first original material since the split.
