The Lathums headlined a sold-out Albert Hall upon their return to Manchester this week, celebrating reaching number one album in the music charts by playing to a packed house in one of the city’s most iconic venues.

Indie-rock group The Dream Machine did an excellent job of setting the atmosphere for the Manchester rockers, opening with songs including ‘Wild One,’ ‘Too Stoned to Die,’ and their latest single, ‘Children, My England.’

The Lathums frontman Alex Moore soon stormed the stage, much to the delight of the home crowd who erupted in applause. As the band launched into ‘Fight On’ the crowd erupted into further joy and bounced from the rafters.

Formed in 2018, the local lads stared out into the audience for a proud moment, as they watched fans chant their own lyrics back to them.

‘How Beautiful Life Can Be’ took the audience on a poetic trip through Moore’s youth. This sombre track saw Scott Concepcion (guitar), Johnny Cunliffe (bass), and Ryan Durrans (drummer) leave the stage as Moore took centre stage for this special moment.

The crowd departed the show with nothing but smiles and lifelong memories after ‘Lucky Bean’ brought the house down and the evening to a close.

The Lathums are currently on a UK tour after landing their second No.1 album with From Nothing To A Little More.

The tour includes dates in Norwich, Cardiff, Nottingham, Birmingham and London and will be followed by a European leg visiting Germany, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands, before another set of UK shows in May 2023.

Manchester fans will also have another chance to catch this outstanding band’s show in June at Castlefield Bowl. Don’t miss out!
