Camden Town’s Roundhouse venue hosted Miles Kane who supported Arctic Monkeys for the iTunes Festival on Wednesday (6th July). For the latest from the festival including links to video recordings, highlights and more check out my storify.
Miles Kane is best known for his band with the lead singer of Arctic Monkeys, Alex Turner, The Last Shadow Puppets. He was also in The Rascals and The Little Flames. He’s now touring with his solo project, on the festival circuit and in support slots with the likes of Beady Eye.
Miles Kane continued in his style of indie guitar bands with his solo work which fitted right into the sound of the evening. The gig was better than expected and provided a good opening to the event.
Arctic Monkeys played a perfect mix of their albums, from the latest foot stomper ‘Library Picture’ to the end of their encore with ‘505’. Though, the venue’s columns make it difficult to see the stage, especially for shorter members of the audience.
Arctic Monkeys are a must-see band for anyone and despite everything it was one of the best live sets I’ve seen. If you can, check them out at this summer’s festivals, at either their US and American tour or Reading and Leeds Festival.
