Last Thursday, I headed off to That London as I had won tickets through iTunes to see McFLY at KOKO’s in Camden. I met my friend The Raaaaaaaaachel outside Euston Station and we checked into our hotel which was close by (although we headed off the wrong way at first, almost getting to the venue!)
After having a little wander up Euston Road (erm, I think), we got ready and went to KOKO’s. It was quite exciting actually, I love live music, and I think Rachels excitement was rubbing off on me.
We got to KOKO’s, handed over the tickets and were given iTunes lanyards that had little cards on them with access codes to download a sampler from the iTunes store. The bouncer near the ticket table made us put them on before we entered the main room and paid an extortionate amount for a Fosters and a Malibu and Coke. (Yes, we’re classy ladies)
KOKO’s is quite a small venue, but was big enough for about 300 people (I think). There was a surprising amount of older men there who knew all the words…
As for the actual gig, I thought they were pretty awesome. As mentioned (erm, probably) before, I’ wasn’t a huge fan, but they are so good live. We were in the ground area, and standing near the back of that crowd. We were right next to the sound desk, and there was a dude who was filming it for the Vue cinemas. If you were in the Vue, you were probably seeing my hair bouncing about a lot and me turning to grin like a fool at Rach!
They played a good mix of songs from their new album, Radio:Active and their most popular hits.
iTunes has some photos here, along with the set list. Also, more photos (and videos!) can be found here on Flickr.
I shall leave you with a video of the final song of the night, 5 Colours In Her Hair.
