Lawson - The Everywhere We Go tour @ Bournemouth BIC Solent hall

Lawson are well into their Everywhere We Go tour and tonight it’s the turn of Bournemouth’s BIC centre to host their latest date

The BIC Solent hall is a mid-sized venue holding around 2000 and judging by tonight’s crowd and the queues to get in it looks like it’s a sell-out, around 1500 13-16 year olds, mainly girls.

First up on tonight’s bill were Paighton, a four-piece co-vocal band from the Midlands. Their debut single ‘Drive (A little piece of me)’ is released on 13th October 2013. Taking to the stage they got a great reception as they were greeted by hordes of screaming fans. As the set gets going it’s apparent that Paighton aren’t just another boy band, these guys can play and the melodic summer feel to their tunes left me thinking summer is still here, definitely a band to watch out for.

After a short interval the next act up was Room 94. These guys are a four-piece pop/rock band from North London, UK. They are made up of three brothers - Kieran Lemon (Lead vocals and guitar), Dean Lemon (Drums) & Sean Lemon (Guitar) and friend Kit Tanton, on bass. As they walked onto the stage a massive applause erupted around the venue, leaving no doubt that they are popular, as they kick in with their anthem single ‘Superstar’ followed by “The Morning After” and “Miss You” it’s apparent that for the next 20 minutes Room 94 own the stage.  Punchy and melodic twined with good musician and showmanship I think it’s a dead cert that we will hear a lot more from these guys in the near future.

The back of the stage had been curtained off during the support acts to hide the headliners stage space which I haven’t seen done for ages (usually reserved for metal bands) and it’s something I really miss. I think it’s the whole anticipation of not knowing what’s behind it and working out how and when the headliner is going to appear. For this point alone Lawson are already in my good books.

Bang on 9.15pm the lights dim and music is heard behind the curtain. Then suddenly it drops, revealing a blinding white light, stage smoke & loud music. Then as if they had just landed, Lawson appear from the back of the stage with a presence to wow any seasoned gig goer. As they kicked into their first song ‘Juliette’ the crowd was a sea of hands, iphones and ‘I love you Lawson’ signs.

The band showed their true professionalism throughout the night, and I think in time will appeal to a wider-ranging audience. These guys can really play and hold a good set. I highly recommend catching them at their next show, if you can get a ticket.

If there’s one thing I can take away from tonight’s show, it’s the fact that I’m a Lawson convert and I’m not afraid to say it.

Lawson Set list
Make It Happen, Taking Over Me, Gone, Love Locked Out, Die For You, Learn To Love Again, Parachute, Girl I Knew, Stolen, When She Was Mine, This Is What It Feels Like, Broken Hearted, Standing In The Dark.
