Live Review: Public Service Broadcasting / Pale Blue Eyes – O2 Academy, Leicester 11.10.2022

Public Service Broadcasting brought ‘singles night’ to the o2 Academy in Leicester this week.

Tonights support act were Devons Pale Blue Eyes, go check these guys out, already getting air play on BBC 6 Music and an upcoming tour with Birminghams ‘Swim Deep’ these guys have star potential and their own headline tour won’t be far off.

After a short break Public Service Broadcasting founding fathers J. Willgoose, Esq. and Wrigglesworth were joined on stage by J F Abraham, Mr B and a brass section throughout the set. Opening with latest albums second track “Im licht’ (In The Light) before playing a couple of tracks from previous album “Every Vally”

The music is just part of the live show from Public Service Broadcasting, mixing lights with visuals to each song invoking feelings and a sense of involvement you can’t help but being inserted into the world of PSB.

This much changed set list from the bands previous shows on the tour was a testament to how good the band are as a unit to be able to mix up such complicated stage production seamlessly.

A few personally highlights for me came from hearing the bittersweet ‘White Starliner’ from their 2018 EP of the same name, the beautiful ‘Blue Heaven’ and the always crowd pleasing single “Go”

After a short stage exit the band returned to much anticipation to get people dancing before closing the show with debut album track “Everest”
