Wallows finally brought their Tell Me That It’s Over Tour to London for a huge sold-out show at Eventim Apollo. The atmosphere in the venue was electric, as the crowd eagerly waited to see the incredibly talented 3-piece American band take to the stage. The long wait for this show certainly didn’t point as the guys put on a stellar performance from start to finish, leaving their fans truly fascinated.
The incredible MAY-A opened the night with an energetic performance of her alt-pop tracks. Her performance included performances of “Apricots”, “Swing Of Things” and a cover of Flume’s track “Say Nothing”. MAY-A was definitely the perfect opener prior to Wallows set.
As the band took to the stage the audience went crazy, both band and fans alike were beaming with happiness. They kicked off the jam packed set with one of the songs that inspired their tour “I Don’t Want To Talk”, as you can imagine this sent they crowd crazy. Band members Dylan Minnette and Braeden Lemasters blend so harmoniously as they join forces to sing the chorus ‘No, I’m not alright, but I don’t need comfort. I don’t want to talk.So could you tell me that it’s over, tell me that it’s over. Tell me that it’s over now? Then I could shut this off’.
The setlist for the night was top tier, with so many of the bands much loved songs, this includes “Pleaser”, “OK” and “WISH ME LUCK”. One thing that we love about Wallows is how they showcase each of their individual talents throughout the set, giving each individual their time to shine. Midway through the set drummer Cole Preston trader his drums for the guitar to sing “Quarterback”, in return Dylan Minnette took over playing the drums. Shortly after this the band played “Pictures Of Girls”, which features an incredible guitar solo by the one and only Braeden Lemasters. He also went on to perform a fan favourite “1980s Horror Film II”, which had the fans shouting the lyrics back to him.
The band took some time to speak with the audience about how grateful they were to be able play a sold-out show in such an iconic London venue, which some of their idols have played in the past, the most notable being The Beatles. Towards the end of the set the band played their hits “Marvelous”, “Scrawny” and their upbeat hit “Remember When”, which was accompanied by a confetti canon moment. It was truly a euphoric time.
To close the bands special night Wallows performed one of their most loved tracks, “Are Your Bored Yet”, which was the perfect way to end such an incredible night. We are already looking forward to the next time Wallows are back in the UK.
