Live Review: Rudimental @ Wolves Civic – 25/02/2014

When you spot a drum kit on the stage with more cymbals than in the hieroglyphic alphabet – you know you’re in for a night of fun and dancing.

That was exactly the case as Rudimental finished off their UK tour at Wolverhampton Civic Hall.

Staright from the off, it felt like more of a party than a gig, as the huge backing group joined the foursome for a night of great tunes and stunning visuals.

I’ve been to a fair few gigs at the Civic Halls and in terms of how good it looked, I’d have to say this one was right up there.

All sorts of crazy lights met the eyes of the crowd each time the beat kicked in on songs such as hit Not Giving In, More Than Anything and Home.

The crowd were obviously enjoying themselves as sweat dripped off the ceiling, although it could have been beer from the multiple pints that were thrown in the air as the beat once again kicked in.

Basslines could be felt in dancing feet as the set was building up to the big finale.

Free saw countless people on shoulders, while the band delighted the crowd with a cover of Original Nutter before finishing on Feel The Love.

Their encore saw them go back to basics, bringing on each section of the band one by one to create Breathe, before they eventually finished with Waiting All Night.

This was a gig that had pretty much every genre of music fused into the songs, which have been a hit with old and young alike. There was a surprisingly eclectic crowd in. I even saw a family with a child of no more than four dancing around to the infectious music.

He seemed to be enjoying himself – and so did everyone else.
