The Enemy Tour Ends In Birmingham

The Enemy may have woken up today in their home town of Coventry with very sore heads as they celebrated the end of yet another UK tour. Thankfully they didn't have too far to travel back home at the end of the after-party following a second night at Birmingham Carling Academy.

It was also celebrations for The Wombats, who were able to make it on stage tonight (previously ill) and the news their single "Let's Dance To Joy Division" had entered the UK charts at #15. Andy Hopkins from The Enemy had also battled against illness over the past few days to bravely solider on for the many Coventry fans who turned up both nights.

According to NME, all three acts put on a "ferocious performances for the packed house" and The Enemy were in a celebratory mood following the gig, by presenting bottles of champagne to both support acts by way of thanks.

Tom Clarke spoke to NME magazine and told them:

"Playing in Birmingham for two nights was something that I really didn't expect so these dates were a real highlight, but I think the gig at Glasgow Barrowlands really stood out the most. I think the Scots are leading the way when it comes to getting on to new bands."

"The Wombats have been great and they were definitely on a winner tonight. But I've got a lot of respect for how hard Lethal Bizzle worked on this tour. I wouldn't feel very confident going out in front of a crowd of Lethal Bizzle fans but he went out in front of ours and managed to convert a lot of people who didn't know anything about him."
