Welsh Pop Punk five-some Neck Deep returned to Nottingham’s renowned Rock City just over three weeks from their previous show.
Neck Deep’s rise to fame heightened after latest album ‘The Peace and the Panic’ charted top 5 in the UK and the US, following sold out tour dates all over the world.
After the shocking turn of events that went down on the 9 October which resulted in Neck Deep’s set being cancelled after two songs, the band returned to give the audience a show they truly deserved.
The previous show was cut short due to a physical confrontation between the security and the band.
Rock City owners DHP Family made a comment in the Nottingham Post last month which said: “having reviewed the CCTV footage and spoken to witnesses, it doesn’t appear that the security staff were disproportionate in their response to the crowd surfing.”
In a statement made by the band on Facebook, they stated, “we believe that violence is never a solution, and everything that went down could and should have been handled better by all parties.”
However, just over three weeks later returning on the 5 November, Neck Deep manage to play the full set with no interruptions.
Ruth Casey, 19, of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire said: “I expected to wait months for the rescheduled show, the turnaround was amazing. Surrounded by moshing fans covered in sweat and beer, it was a night to remember.”
The significance the band has towards their younger fans was prevalent throughout the show as Barlow exclaimed: “We’ve got to get through this sh*t together” and “It’s not about how high we chart, its about helping you guys”.
At the previous show fans were left devastated after only two songs, however the second show certainly made up for it with an atmosphere that was unforgettable.
