Midway through their UK tour, Nothing But Thieves returned to Nottingham for a sold out show at Rock City.
Celebrating the release of their second studio album, Broken Machine, Nothing But Thieves catered to everyone by playing a mix of old and new songs. Powering through the set the band played songs including ‘Wake Up Call’, ‘Ban All The Music’ and ‘Sorry’ much to the joy of the lively crowd.
Frontman Conor Mason’s impressive rage makes for him to have one of the best on stage vocal performances of any band I’ve seen. With a matured sound of the new album came an improved live show. The passion and dedication the guys have for their craft is clear as they all confidently play on stage. Slowing things down, Mason made a joke about how he planned to go to university in Nottingham. “But then I became a rockstar,” he joked.
Rounding things up with recent hit, ‘Amsterdam’, the band left everyone in awe of what had been an incredible night.
