Live review: Peace @ O2 Forum Kentish Town, 16/05/18
Share This Article:
Kicking off their tour just over a week ago, last night Birmingham band Peace stopped by an excitable O2 Forum. Fresh off the back of their new album, Kindness Is The New Rock and Roll, you'd expect the iconic London venue to be full to the brim. It seemed a fitting choice with a capacity of 2,300; however, with empty seating evident in the balcony area, the non-sold-out show felt perhaps a stretch with fans not getting on board with their 'new album sound'. Regardless, the Brummie rockers opened the show with biblical fan favourite '1998' and the whole venue burst into action, the energy filling every space, wall to wall. Front man Harry Koisser’s endlessly cool panache was exhibited no more perfectly in this ten minute anthem, teasing the crowd with a pause to remove his floor length Cruella Deville-esque fur coat before the much anticipated drop – something which Drummer Dominic ‘Boycie’ Boyce entertained on twitter in the previous week.

From the very start, Peace owned the stage and showed everybody why they remain a great live band in the British indie guitar music scene. The audience was seamlessly united under the roof of O2 Forum Kentish Town, enjoying the considerate 21 song setlist in high spirits.
