Support: Twin Atlantic
Leicester O2 Academy
My first time at Leicester’s new O2 Academy that I’ve been watching them build since its part of Leicester uni’s student union, it’s really nice in there, they keep getting good bookings for the venue and I think it’ll continue.
Twin Atlantic opened the show, they were good, nothing amazing but very good for an opener.
This was the first time I’ve seen Jimmy Eat World perform a headlining set, and I was impressed, they swiftly moved through a mixed setlist of newer and older stuff, including plenty from their Bleed American/Jimmy Eat World album (Bleed American, The Middle, Sweetness and You Hear Me). I noticed throughout the set how into the music Jim was hopping and dancing all over the stage. Although they don’t have much crowd interaction or interaction with each other, the audience is very much a spectator of the show rather than being a part of the show. All in all, they were excellent live, and I’d love to see them again.
