Northern Uproar - Live and acoustic - 17th February 2012

Tab_widthOn Friday night just gone Northern Uproar played a live acoustic gig in Manchester, which was recorded for an upcoming album release... 

"Hey Everyone

The gig went great , was sold out ! thanks to everyone who came , it was a great atmosphere with fans traveling from all over the country and even as far as Norway to be there .Was really good to see lots of all old friends and to make a few new ones .

The support bands were FANTASTIC  - The Gramotones are defo goin places , super talented and great singers . Sam Smith gave a brilliant solo performance with loads of great fresh songs and a brilliant Springsteen cover , another one with a bright future we reckon . And Sam Mellor from Army of Stars was great too , loads of passion and a really confident performance had people hanging on every word.

Then it was us, with a great theatrical intro from Kevin Kay ... here's what we played :

Rough boy
Girl i once knew
Coming Around
Soldier boy
See the world in your own way
Don't bring me down
Livin' it up
There is a place 
Nothing you can do
Anyway you look
Breaking the Ice

And there was loads more we wanted to do ! a few of which we recorded at the sound check , of course no gig is complete without a couple of stage invasions , so thanks to the nutters who put the cherry on the cake .

Some more thanks - All our Friends and Family , Kev Kay for his help and support for pretty much 20 years , Karin Albinsson for the same and for her amazing images , Dave Haunch for providing security on the night and keeping us all safe , Chris @ Toast recordings for the sound and recording , Racheal Richards for PR, the People at Pledge Music for the great support and advice , EVERYONE who has pledged , you made it happen ! and everyone who has supported the band over the years .. 

By the way if you haven't  but want to , you can still Pledge today here:

Just gotta mix it now . 

It's good to be back . Up the 'Roar . Viva ze revolution!!"
