With appearances in summer music festivals up and down the country before they head back to the studio to record their next album, it was finally Warrington’s turn to get the chart-topping Scouting for Girls to grace the stage for the final performance of this year’s Warrington Music Festival.
From playing Glastonbury and headlining Wembley Arena to playing alongside Olly Murs and Little Mix, the band are known for their fun, infectious dance tunes about love, girls and wanting to be James Bond.
The indie rock band from London caused a frenzy of high energy dancing and full pelt singing from the good strong crowd at The Old Market Place in Golden Square.
Supported by the incredibly talented rocker Kim Jennett and her band along with pop rock band Conquer Rio, they are both homegrown talents that we need to watch out for.
Once they departed the stage, the atmosphere was electric in anticipation for Scouting for Girls to make an appearance; the screams from the crowd were almost deafening when frontman Roy Stride, guitarists Greg Churchouse and Jamie O’Gorman and drummer Pete Ellard ran on in front of the Warringtonian crowd.
Immediately, the band acknowledged the crowd as the fifth member of the band before launching into their set of well-known chart toppers including Heartbeat, Famous and a cover of Rudimental’s hit Waiting All Night.
A high energy dance party is the only way that can describe the crowd throughout their show, with everyone singing along to their songs, young and old.
There is no doubt that the lyrics for Scouting for Girls could be heard all across Warrington especially when the encore track that everyone had been waiting for, She’s So Lovely, started playing.
To say the crowd went mad is an understatement; from the start and throughout, the crowd was thoroughly entertained and wanting more.
Bright pop songs partnered with energetic dance tracks with a sprinkle of infectious melodies topped off with beautiful summer weather, what more could you want from the perfect ending of the biggest and best Warrington Music Festival yet.
Scouting for Girls had the audience in the palm of their hands from start to finish and really showed the audience why they’ve gained major success within the music industry.
