The Enemy: Riot Breaks Out At Cardiff Gig

The Enemy couldn't have predicted this riot!

Just a few days into their NME Rock 'n' Roll Tour and The Enemy almost caused a riot as they played Cardiff last night. Reports icWales :"very few new bands could have done what The Enemy did last night", this was after The Wombats were unable to attend due to illness and Lethal Bizzle was caught up in a motorway pile-up that kept him on the M4 instead of the stage at Cardiff University.

The crowds were kept waiting in wet Wales as doors failed to open at 7pm due to the missing artists and finally the wet throng gained access after 8pm. You can imagine that some were not happy at then waiting until 9:35pm for The Enemy to finally come on stage, but for others it gave ample time to down a few beers before the gig eventually started.

The Coventry trio launched straight into the anthem "Away From Here" and won over the crowd, who were soon singing along. But by the second offering ("40 Days and 40 Nights"), the main lights had to be turned on as a 10 man brawl erupted near the front of the stage. Security wasted no time in sorting it out and restoring some sort of order at the lively venue.

The Enemy are able to carry the crowds along with songs like "Aggro" and "Pressure" that stir emotions, yet unite the audience in vocal support for The Enemy. As Tom Clarke belts out lyrics about life in modern Britain, with all it's problems, Andy Hopkins crowds surfs!

"This is so good I want to be in there with you!", shouts the bassist as he launches himself into a waiting sea of arms. The newspaper summed it up saying: "working class heroes? spot-on"
