Live Review: The Wildhearts - Nottingham Rock City, 19/09/2009

British rock veterans, The Wildhearts played to a capacity crowd at Nottingham’s Rock City with a 2 part set that was filled with plenty of energy and hard rock.

The first part saw the 4-piece play their new album ‘Chutzpah’ in full, from start to finish. They play a mix of fierce, heavy rock, whereas tracks like ‘You Are Proof That Not All Women Are Insane’ show the bands more catchy side. The new songs received a good response from the crowd, as did the short stories, lead singer Ginger told in between songs. Much like the record, the bands performance is of a high standard and highly enjoyable.

The second half saw the band go into their extensive back catalogue of 16 years, with songs such as ‘I Wanna Go Where The People Go’, ‘Nita Nitro’ and ‘Suckerpunch’ being performed. By this time the crowd are clapping along and singing a long to every word. They finish on fan favourite, ‘29x The Pain’ and graciously thank their fans for their continuous support before leaving the audience satisfied with an all round impressive performance.

Overall a much welcomed return to Nottingham for this legendary British rock group.
