Don Broco headlines Ally Pally

Crowd at Don Broco

November 11th marks the night Don Broco, a rock band from Bedford, England, headlined Alexandra Palace, a venue with a capacity of over 10,000 people.

It was a long time coming, with the show being announced prior to their run at the Slam Dunk Festival 2017 back in May, Rob Damiani, Simon Delaney, Tom Doyle, and Matt Donnelly had plenty of time to plan their largest gig to date.

With opening acts by the likes of Counterfeit and State Champs, they were surely in great company for this momentous occasion.

Don Broco opened with “Technology”, the second song from their upcoming album which the song is cleverly named after. The song pumped up the crowd and gave a chance for the fans, who are more into the wilder side of concert-going, to rock out in mosh pits all throughout the venue. Don Broco lead vocalist Rob Damiani was beaming at the turnout, “This is insane!”.

Everyone got what they came for, as Don Broco slowed it down during the gig and performed the acoustic version of the single “Whole Truth” from their 2012 album “Priorities” which peaked at number 25 on the UK Albums Chart back in 2012.

Although everyone may have a favourite part of the night, it is certain that for one fan the night would be unforgettable as he proposed to his long-time girlfriend on stage in front of 10.000 people. (Mad, right?) 

Of course the night finished off with the boys changing into white tuxedos and performing the song that started the journey towards their sold out Alexandra Palace show, “Pretty”.

 

“Tehcnology” is currently available for pre-order on the bands’ website.
