Portsmouth indie band Kassassin Street proudly kicked off their UK Tour with a SOLD-OUT night hometown gig at The Wedgewood Rooms. The band were one of the most talked about bands at their local festival – Victorious Festival (which had the likes of Manic Street Preachers and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds headline in 2016) – over the past two years. And after seeing last night’s gig you can see why.
Taking to the stage; Nathan, Ryan, Andy, Tom and lead singer Rowan instantly had the crowd in the palm of their hand. Kicking off with crowd pleaser Do or Die. The crowd were amazing all night and the guys fed off their reaction, it kept everyone going. Best thing you could ask for. No matter where you were in the venue from front to the back the crowd were singing, dancing and having an amazing time.
Although there were only 11 songs on their set list, you wouldn’t think they had only been around for 2 years. The band commanded the stage like they had been there 10 years. The crowd did not stop jumping around, loved every moment watching their local idols. Ending their set with another hit Centre Straight Atom, the crowd did not want it to be over and were demanding “One more song!” as the band left the stage.

As Rowan said when the band left the stage last night “Next year see you at The Pyramids… right?”
After last night’s sold out gig at The Wedge, I don’t think Kassassin Street will have any problems selling out The Pyramids, if they decided to perform there for their next local gig.
