The DMA’s are about the biggest name touring the UK at the moment. We went for a look.
The DMA’s are on a high. With a new album, The Glow to push they have somehow managed to pull off a UK tour. Quite how they managed it will remain a puzzle, but they have. And fair play to them.
We were wondering about their draw as we walked into the Arena which was nowhere near half full for the support from The Night Café, which was a shame, because the latecomers missed out on a pretty good indie, rocky set. It was a good warm up for what was to come later.
But, by the time The DMA’s hit the stage, the Arena was buzzing and the crowd was well up for this one, We’ll have to confess, we’re not a great fan of arena gigs and this was one to be sampled, mostly, from the back. But that wasn’t a bad place to be. People watching and beer drinking is a fine past time. And with The DMA’s as a soundtrack, then all is cool.
Ramped up to a six piece for this tour, this band knows what’s what. It’s not particularly sophisticated and we may have to park our other tastes, but it was a pretty good way to spend a Saturday. It’s solid and it get’s our vote for a feel good show.
Sometimes, just sometimes, the easy listen hits the spot.
