Don Broco – KoKo, London – 18th April 2013



Don Broco play the last night of their tour in front of 2, 500 people at a sold out KoKo in Camden. For the guys, it is another gig at a venue filled to capacity – the ‘Priorities‘ Tour has been a massive success for the band and was a complete sell out. ‘Broco At KoKo‘ has been on everyone’s lips for a while now. After their gig at The Underworld just a few weeks ago sold out within minutes, this was a chance for people who have missed out first time round, to get their tickets.  And of course there are the one’s who just can’t get enough of Broco live. After much anticipation, Rob, Simon, Tom and Matt finally come on stage, and from the very first chord of their opening number ‘Priorities’ people are hooked. Everyone starts singing along, and it’s obvious that a lot of people here have seen the guys live before, as they join in with all the little dance routines, like the ‘Broco Walk’. The Don Broco guys certainly know how to please a crowd, how to throw themselves into their songs as though this is the first night of their tour, not the last, and it makes for a fantastic concert. Their set list is a real mix of old and new, from ‘Fancy Dress‘ to ‘I’m Good‘, from ‘Hold On‘ to ‘Beautiful Morning‘ and there’s never a dull moment. It seems like no matter which song, Don Broco can do no wrong.  There are people crowd surfing right from the start. During ‘Thug Workout‘ front man Damiani even asks for a push up pyramid and people happily comply. It’s amazing to watch how much the band involve the fans at every single one of their shows, with everything from push ups to sing alongs.
What can I say other than Don Broco are one of the most exciting live bands and they never fail to deliver an incredible performance.  The guys have such great energy and fantastic chemistry that is completely intoxicating to watch and I’m asking every single one of you, who has not seen them live yet to go to a gig or make sure to catch them at a festival this summer, you will not regret it. And that’s a promise.
