The Lumineers - The Lumineers' sell out show

Subscribe to The Lumineers alerts

The Lumineers played a sold out show at London's Brixton Academy last night (11.03.13).

The 'Stubborn Love' band continue their rise to the top, performing the first of two sold out shows at the venue, showcasing new material as well as highlights from their self-titled debut.

The folk-rock band - who have recently expanded to a five piece - got the crowd going early with a rousing rendition of the track that broke them in the UK, 'Ho Hey', which saw most of the crowd singing back every word to them.

Singer Wesley Schultz led proceedings and urged the crowd to join him in sing-a-longs to both his own tracks and a version of Bob Dylan's 'Subterranean Homesick Blues', while percussionist Jeremiah Fraites hardly stayed behind his drumkit all night.

Cello and mandolin player Neyla Pekarek also duetted with Wesley on one of the band's new tracks, while new member, pianist Stelth Ulvang could be found playing his instrument with his bare toes at one point.

Although the band - completed by bass player Ben Wahamaki - had most of the 5,000 capacity venue rocking they have previously said they find audiences in the UK less ''rowdy'' than their US counterparts.

Wes said last year: ''The fans have been really polite and respectful and we're not really used to that - we're used to a rowdy and raucous environment.''

The Lumineers play their second show at the venue tonight (12.03.13).
