It’s been a long time coming with Yorkshires Finest finally being able to play Brighton Dome as part of their ‘Another Night, Another Town – Greatest hits live tour’. The original date was scheduled way back in December and cancelled because of the dreaded pandemic. Shed Seven entertained a packed Brighton Dome to their magnificent guitar-laden hits and forgotten album tracks and were last seen playing in the city way back way in 2003.
From the moment the Support act, ‘The Lottery Winners’ came onto the stage the crowd were certainly up for it and with the entertaining wit and banter of the front man Thom Rylance, kept the fans on their toes with their indie anthems like ‘Headlock’ and new songs like ‘Favourite Flavour’ taken from the album ‘Something to leave the House for’ released back in September 2021. The Lottery Winner originally formed back in 2008 and have a certain jingly – jangly pop feel to their tunes and they will certainly go on to bigger things in future years to come.
With everyone warmed up nicely for the evening to the joyous ‘Lottery Winners’ set, the stage was handed over to Shed Seven with an energetic frontman Rick Witter being snake-hipped and full of attitude as ever as if he never left the 90’s behind.
Opening with the riotous track ‘Room in my House’ the band were certainly on form and loving every minute on stage and had plenty of great songs under their sleeve including ‘Casino Girl’ and ‘Disco Down’.
Even the mobile phone advert song ‘Speakeasy’, played acoustically sounded as fresh as it did back in the day, the crowds belted out every word back at the band and enjoyed every minute of every song played.
The whole evening was a massive sing along with a lot of laughter and banter from the band with the fans demanding more with the last encore song ‘Chasing Rainbows’ being played. With such a large catalogue of anthems and hits, you can see why Shed Seven will always sell-out shows in the future and
produce even more memorable material!
