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

Have your say

From the moment they bounded on stage, it was clear from the raucous reception that the Pigeon Detectives were back in town.

The Yorkshire five-piece played to a sold-out Wedgewood Rooms on the last night of their UK tour.

They performed tracks from their new record, We Met at Sea, as well as some old hits, which delighted their passionate fans.

This Is An Emergency and I Found Out were particularly popular in the packed venue.

Frontman Matt Bowman was the star of the show.

His endless enthusiasm saw him dousing fans with water one moment, then swinging the microphone around the next.

He continually jumped on the drums and speakers and even crowd-surfed during a storming rendition of Romantic Type.

After an exhilarating encore of I’m Not Sorry, Bowman promised that the group would be back.

And judging from the positive reaction from the crowd, it will no doubt be a sell-out again.
