Andrew Foster and The Watchmen at the New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth

Have your say

So, off I went to the New Theatre Royal to watch a rather talented local fella named Andrew Foster and his Watchmen perform on the big stage.

Kicking things off with an excellent debut performance were Calico Ghost, before the brilliant Kassassin Street, who whipped the crowd into a frenzy ready for the arrival of Mr Foster.

With Neil Armstrong’s famous Apollo 11 transmission playing, Andrew Foster and the Watchmen took to the stage to a chorus a cheers and whistles and wasted no time in jumping into their cracking set, filling the auditorium with a blend of indie rock laced with a handful of folk and a pinch of psychedelica.

Tracks such as Amy Watches The Stars, Panic Moon and one of my personal favourites Zombie Dance went down a treat as the watching crowd danced along – in their seats, anyway.

Andrew Foster and his Watchmen are a fantastic band, their beautifully-crafted songs and obvious performing ability make them a joy.

To see them performing against the beautiful backdrop of the New Theatre Royal was just an added bonus.
