It’s amazing to think that Feeder have been around since the mid-1990s and have produced eight albums, including Generation Freakshow.

I last caught Feeder at this year’s muddy Isle of Wight Festival. I find them a humble band and cannot understand why critics claim they’re predictable.

The audience at Portsmouth’s Guildhall appeared to savour every last lyric and beat. There was a constant applause and resounding appreciation as each hit bounced off the walls.

We welcomed new tracks Oh My and Idaho and rediscovered our early indie roots to Just the Way I’m Feeling and Renegades.

Frontman Grant Nicholas sings pure emotion. I can’t help but wonder if he thinks of late band member Jon Lee during live performances. As we welcome Buck Rogers, Nicholas announces that they’re approaching the end of the tour and will be ‘going away for a while’ to decide what to do next. Let’s hope this isn’t going to be the end.
