Bastille – Brighton Centre – 1st February 2019

With their newest album Doom Days “imminently coming” this year, it was definitely a suitable reason behind commencing Bastille’s latest tour. Titled ‘Still Avoiding Tomorrow’, this tour brought the band to the Brighton Centre.

The venue and the people who arrived there were as lively as ever. The sold out status of the performance really reflected when looking at the sheer capacity of people who would pack out the auditorium later on. When I arrived to queue up for the show, the line went as far back as the Odeon. However, it moved down incredibly quickly and smoothly. The staff at the Brighton Centre were clearly prepared for a very busy and important evening. There was much buzz among fans about the band and a noticeable waft of excitement in the air. Expectations were set very high for this show it seemed.
