what a weekend it has been!
Last Friday marks the official end of the bands UK Tour, and what a better way to end it than by playing a double show at Ally Pally in London.

It was their first concert in the city since their O2 show in 2013 and it was very clear that they were missed. With only a few tickets left for their thursday show and a sold out friday show, the venue was packed with people, including me 🙂 A few of you may remember that last year before I joined the site as a regular contributor, I actually won this sites contest to get tickets for this event.
The guys were supported by Sundara Karma and special guest for these two shows only, Circa Waves! But fear not, Anteros, their support group for the rest of the UK Tour, were represented by Laura who joined Alex later on during The World Is Watching.
All three bands were amazing. Sundara Karma and Circa Waves both did an amazing job with their performances, entertaining and getting everybody ready for what was about to come : Two Door Cinema Club.
The guys started with two classics, Cigarettes in the Theatre and Undercover Martyn.
Both songs got the crowds fired up and there was lots of jumping, dancing and singing along! They mostly played older songs, but still included quite a few tracks from Gameshow, which sounded amazing live.
It was an evening well spent and I had a great time. I even managed to meet some other Basement People and had a lovely chat during the breaks.
After the concert I was lucky enough to go to their After Party. I felt really out of place at first, with so many familiar faces around me, people I knew from social media who are related to the guys, but nobody knowing me. But that didn’t matter, because when I approached the guys they all took a little moment to talk to me and take a picture.
It was such a surreal experience. They were all really nice, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity that this site has given me.
If you plan on seeing Two Door in the future, you are in for a treat! (Hamburg anyone? – let me know on Twitter)
I really hope that each and everyone of you get the opportunity to see them live one day, and maybe even meet them. The way they perform their songs is truly incredible. Having been a fan for many years it fills me with so much joy to hear them play in person. It is such a wonderful experience and I urge you all to get tickets to see them if you can. It will be worth it!
Talk again soon,
