BIG INTERVIEW Joe Satriani: 'I just wanted to be in the studio and rock out with two other guys.'

Have your say

Having been a fan of the Lostprophets for many years, I was excited to get the chance to see them performing at Southampton Guildhall.

The Welsh rock band from Pontypridd performed a colourful and energetic set against an atmospheric backdrop, with songs from their five albums including their newest release, Weapons.

Recent single Bring ‘Em Down kicked off an almost-two-hour set that was split between tracks from the aforementioned Weapons along with Last Train Home, It’s Not the End of the World, A Town Called Hypocrisy and my personal favourite, Rooftops.

The headliners had a tough act to follow from their support band Modestep – a dubstep/electronic rock band from London, who got the fans geared-up and ready for more.

The band were all dressed uniformly in white T-shirts with their logo emblazoned across the front. But, before stripping to his T, lead singer Ian Watkins wore a jacket and gloves covered in green neon lights.

When the band launched into a cover of Sweet Child O’ Mine by Guns N’ Roses, then moved into their song Where We Belong, it was a highlight of the night.
