IN the last six years Rudimental must have received just about every plaudit out there including platinum album sales, Brit, MOBO and MTV awards as well as providing a platform for a host of artists who have gone on to achieve great things in their own right.

Anne-Marie, Ella Eyre, John Newman, Emeli Sande and Jess Glynne have all shared a studio or stage with these guys along with a host of others.

Wednesday night’s show at the BIC had already been upgraded from the O2 due to demand for tickets and judging by the queues at the bar, which were ten deep five minutes before the start of the gig, it could easily have moved into the larger Windsor Hall.

Launching straight into Right Here, Not Giving In and I Will For Love, the driving beat continued through Toast to our Differences, Sun Comes Up and Bloodstream with vocal duties being shared between the band, backing singers and guest vocalists.

The band covered every inch of the stage, which looked pretty cool with flags from around the world providing the backdrop to the evening.

All too soon we were at Feel The Love and the end of the main set.

A quick encore of Waiting All Night (were those people still queuing at the bar?) and These Days and it was all over much too soon.

This is a band that deserve all of their awards and sold out shows that they play and I fully expect to see them hitting the arenas in the not too distant future.
