There were blue skies above Portsmouth as Twickenham’s finest

With the Portsmouth Guildhall at capacity, the atmosphere was fantastic and as the heaving crowd waited, the lights faded to a deafening cheer and Charlie, Tom, Matt ‘Urby’, Fred and Michael, otherwise known as Noah and the Whale, took to the stage.

Wasting no time in giving the crowd what they wanted, the suited and booted five-piece dived straight into their impressive set of tracks old and new. It included Old Joy, Wild Thing and the stunning Blue Skies. Although noisy, it wasn’t until the second half of the show that the crowd really came to life as they sang and danced along to the more upbeat tracks such as Tonight’s The Kind Of Night and 5 Years Time.

Charlie and the lads brought an end to their cracking performance with the hit L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N, before leaving the stage to a thunderous reception.

Noah and the Whale were superb, and seeing them live was a perfect end to a beautiful weekend.
