‘The old maxim “leave them wanting more” has never been truer. Roll on the reunion tour.’
– The Guardian
In an evening of folk frivolity and celebrations, Bellowhead bid farewell to a packed auditorium at the London Palladium this Saturday. Take a look at some of the reviews from the sold out London show, along with some of our favourite snaps from the opening moments.
The Times’ Clive Davis described the party-like atmosphere at the theatre: “Bellowhead’s fans responded in full: for one night only the Palladium came close to having its own mosh pit”, as the folk band performed a their fan’s favourite tracks.
Opening with Jacques Brel’s Amsterdam all the way through to the closing moments of New York Girls, Frogs’ Legs and Dragons’ Teeth and Prickle-Eye Bush, Colin Irwin from The Guardian sums up the night as one of ‘triumph and celebration, in front of a whooping, dancing, adoring full house.’
The Bellowhead farewell tour continues at Southampton Guildhall (27th Apr), Southend Cliffs Pavilion (28th Apr), Norwich Open (29th Apr), Nottingham Royal Concert Hall (30th Apr), Oxford Town Hall (1st May). All shows are sold out.
