Years and Years shine brightly at sell-out O2 show

Synthpop trio Years and Years are currently touring the UK promoting their new album ‘Communion’.

And, according to their growing army of fans in the North East, the time has come for the band to enjoy the success they deserve.

The date at the 02 Academy in Newcastle was a sell out.

The band formed back in 2010, and over the past few years have worked extremely hard to get to where they are today.

They have worked on songs which when released have hit top of the charts this year very quickly.

In January 2015 they were awarded the BBC Sound of 2015 award.

At the end of the gig fans said they had enjoyed the performance. One said:

“The atmosphere was amazing.” Another observed: “Their songs are all so unique and different, they are just incredible.”


Another fan added: “I came to this gig not knowing all the songs, but now I know I am a massive fan of Years and Years and I’m going straight to buy their album.”

For more than an hour the three-piece performed chart topping ‘Shine’ ‘King’ and ‘Desire’ engaging with the audience the whole time.


The songs performed were taken from the album ‘Communion’ which was released earlier this year.

Lead singer, scriptwriter and actor Olly Alexander led the gig and made the night fun and lively, he even brought a young man from the audience up on to stage.

The stage was filled with bright electric energy, this combined with the music left fans speechless as they finished their last song.

Many said ‘Eyes Shut’ was there favourite song performed.

The album has a variation of different styles of songs, some synthpop music, indie, and electronia.

It consists of seventeen songs on the deluxe version, and thirteen on the standard edition.

You can download the album on iTunes now or it is also available on the official Years and Years website.

The trio are due to finish their tour in 2016 performing in London, Wembley.
