You Me At Six Perform Intimate Dr Martens Gig

Earlier on in the year, You Me At Six’s front man, Josh Franceschi, became a member of the Dr Martens family.

Josh was a part of the “Stand For Something” campaign, which included a tour across a few locations in the UK, playing intimate shows for the fans.

You Me At Six headlined the final night of the tour at Dingwalls in Camden Town, London on Saturday the 26th, and it was something fantastic.

For a long time now, You Me At Six have grown and grown. To the point where they’ve ditched the small venues and now play the likes of Wembley Area in 2012, the o2 Arena in 2015, and Alexandra Palace in 2017.

This is brilliant news of course, who wouldn’t want their favourite band to achieve great things?

The guys have continuously worked hard to be the best they can for their fans, and deserve everything that they have accomplished. However, to see them live in a small and intimate venue was bliss.

Yes everything was hot and sweaty, but the atmosphere was so much better than any larger venue could provide. You are so close to your idol and can hear the drum beat vibrate through your chest as you scream your lungs out.

The setlist was a mix between old and new songs and was as follows:

Bite My Tongue
Fresh Start Fever
Stay With Me
Plus One
Lived A Lie
Win Some, Lost Some
Too Young To Feel This Old
No One Does It Better
Room To Breathe
Night People

They played a couple of songs from their new album, Night People, to be released January 2017, which were greatly received by the crowd.

In between songs, the crowd would chant “Save it for the bedroom”, an old song of theirs.

Josh potentially teased something about a tour to play Take Off Your Colours in full in 2018, which is conveniently the ten year anniversary of the debut album.

Josh also mentioned his campaigning work against ticket touting and said that he will keep going to the meetings in the Houses of Parliament in the hopes that something will be achieved.

He stressed how important it was for the fans to support the cause to show people that it is a real and genuine issue.

It was also guitarist, Chris Miller‘s, birthday on the Saturday, and the whole crowd sang a beautiful rendition of the song for him.

Whilst this was You Me At Six’s last show of 2016, they are promising big things in 2017 so we shall sit and wait patiently.

Check out the video for ‘Swear’, their latest single, in preparation for their new album and UK tour in 2017.

Tickets are available now, though they are selling quickly!
