Enthusiastic reaction at London show

Brett Anderson played what he described as his favourite ever solo concert at the Tabernacle venue in Notting Hill last night, October 27th.

Previous solo gigs from the former Suede frontman had seen him take a stripped back approach, taking to the stage with just a piano and cellist. Last night, though, he was joined by a full band featuring former Cooper Temple Clause and Dirty Pretty Thing Didz.

Despite the lack of Suede material in the set, Anderson was given a rapturous response from the sold out show, with screams accompanying every song and wiggle.

Anderson seemed on cheerful form, joking that he was enjoying the gig because he only had to head round the corner to be home and "roll into bed".

Brett Anderson played:

'Hymn'
'Wheatfields'
'Hunted'
'Frozen Roads'
'Leave Me Sleeping'
'Scarecrows'
'Summer'
'Ashes'
'Julian's Eyes'
'Swans'
'Different Place'
'Empress'
'Chinese Whispers'
'To The Winter'
'Love Is Dead'
'Song For My Father'
---
'Funeral Mantra'
'Back To You'
