It was huge return for Rory, Bournemouth-bred frontman of Sunset Sons as they played the Bournemouth O2 last weekend.
Following the new release of their debut album, Never Say Die, Sunset Sons are in the middle of their Autumn 2016 European Tour and have just finished 13 dates in the UK.
“It’s so emotional coming back,” Rory said as he ran down through the crowd to hug his sister and greet some friends during the set.
The group have had a big year, playing stadiums alongside Imagine Dragons and gaining their own momentum, far from their days playing après’ ski gigs in the Alps.
This tour is the first time they’ve showcased new tracks from the record and it was a high-energy set stuffed full of the new material, alongside their older better-known tracks. The audience was quick to buzz and full of local supporters who’ve known the boys from day one.
Earlier that day the boys had joined Surfers Against Sewage down on Bournemouth Beach to lead an Autumn Beach Clean, and help rid the sand of litter. As surfers themselves, they encouraged residents and fans to grab some gloves and help clean the coastline. Many on the beach with them were in the crowd later that evening.
There are big things ahead for Sunset Sons, grab tickets whilst you can.
