Godiva Festival Coventry: The Enemy

Tom Clarke and Liam Watts @ Godiva Festival, Coventry

Headlining the Godiva Festival in Coventry was the natural choice for The Enemy, having achieved so much during the past year. While Tom Clarke, Andy Hopkins and Liam Watts have enjoyed a number one album and awards, they have always remained firmly down to earth and loyal to Coventry.

Coventry welcomes The Enemy

Tonight was the night The Enemy returned home to Coventry and put on a free performance in front of thousands. This year there was no tent to restrict the numbers and no matter how much it rained it didn't stop the masses from standing firm in their support of the lads who have done so much for this city. Slowly the umbrella's came down and the hands went up in unison as the whole of Godiva sang "We'll Live And Die In These Towns" and "You're Not Alone" - being reminded by Tom Clarke that the song was dedicated to the ex-workers from Peugeot.

Andy Hopkins and Liam Watts proved as energetic as ever through out the show, with Andy darting from side to side on stage - wisely avoiding crowd surfing and thus keeping his clothing during the duration of the set. As well as playing hits from the debut album, the Coventry crowds were treated to a new tune as a taster for things to come. The debut album went to number one exactly a year ago and has remained in the UK album chart virtually the whole year, sitting at #85 this week.
