The Feeling
Date: 3rd March 2007
Venue: Hammersmith Apollo, London
This was the final date of The Feeling’s most recent UK tour and they finished in true entertainment style. Lead singer Dan Gillespie Sells was the complete showman for the whole night combining the flamboyant mixture you would expect of a possible Jarvis Cocker (Pulp) and Russell Brand love child.

The show was supported by the huge MySpace sensation The Fray, who treated an enthusiastic crowd to their top US 2006 iTunes download of 'How To Save A Life' amongst other songs.

The show opened with a video show projected onto a hanging curtain, which featured a compilation of some brilliant (and not so brilliant!) YouTube.com clips from true The Feeling fans. It was the sort of modern embrace of the exploding internet craze that would not have been heard or seen just three years ago - Gary Brolsma and ‘Numa Numa hei’ have a lot to answer for!

The band, from Sussex and London, opened with the album track ‘I Want You Now’ and that launched them into some of their most recognisable songs, such as ‘Love It When You Call’ and ‘Fill My Little World’. The high energy performance from Dan Gillespie Sells was impeccable and included some turbo spins and stage jumps from the raised drummer's platform.

His theatrical style and stage presence was captivating and guitarist Kevin Jeremiah was the equal to his vocalist with flying antics and stage entertainment. My personal highlight of the night was the cover of the famous Buggles' No. 1 Hit ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ which I believe is to be the B-side to their next single 'Rosé'. It was superb and I highly recommend downloading their version when it is available.

A little over 5,000 people packed into the Hammersmith Apollo to enjoy the catchy lyrics and memorable choruses of a wonderful group, who will hopefully be around long enough for another UK tour soon. It was impressive to see a wide range of people, of all ages and backgrounds, enjoying the show and everyone left with a smile on their face. It was a cracking encore of ‘Fat Bottom Girls’, that classic Queen track, and their album title ‘Twelve Stops From Home’ which sealed a fantastic night of great music and top-class entertainment.

Looks like I will have to check them out.

Will they tour to Finland one day?

I hope they make it big enough to cross into Europe. I guess only time will tell.
