SATURDAY night saw Australian band Tame Impala play their final show of their world tour after nearly a year on the road.
From getting off the crammed tube to entering the packed out Alexandra Palace, London’s show was promising to be one to remember.
Alexandra Palace opened their doors at 6:30pm and rightly so, as the venue began to fill out immediately.
The arena room was still fairly quite up until the first support act Jagwar Ma began to play and even then it did not fill it’s full capacity.
Jagwar Ma performed a stunning show, playing tracks like “Man I Need” and “Uncertainty” and did so to a high class level.
You could see the bands confidence on stage and their ability to move a crowd was fantastic, they even played some new music that we can probably expect to be released this year.
The venue itself offered a range of things to get involved with before Tame Impala would be playing. Including food stalls, beer tents, entertainment and merchandise.
After a short interlude it was time for Tame Impala to step onto the stage for the final time this tour.
As they walked on they were greeted to an array of screams and shouts complimented by clapping and whistling.
Tame’s performances aren’t just about the music though, they merge together colourful imagery, stage lighting and audience communication to put on one of the best live shows of this generation.
The band finished on “Apocalypse Dreams” where they thanked their audience for being the best and continuing to support the band and their music.
The crowd instantly shouted for more with the chant “Kevin, Kevin” arising, Tame Impala returned to the stage and asked the question “Shall we play some more music?”
Tame Impala put on one of the best shows to date and anyone who was present at this gig knows just how remembered it will be.
Sadly that’s it for Tame Impala’s live shows at the moment, but I’m sure it won’t be long before they hit the road again.
Here is the full setlist for Tame Impala’s London show.
