Hurts bring the joy for a Manchester homecoming
Award winning Manc duo close tri-city festival
Daniel Pratley - 30 May 2011
Hurts brought the main stage of Dot to Dot Festival 2011 to a close with tracks from their debut album 'Happiness' including
'Wonderful Life' and last single 'Better than Love'.
The Mancunian based duo charmed the communards off the o2 Academy with the elegance and the clinical
class only a sharp suite and sovereign ring can.
“I like their style” Andy Jameson, a fan from Manchester, said,
“I wouldn’t like to walk through Piccadilly Gardens looking like Theo, but I might try it out in private”
The set closed the largest stage of the festival which saw performances from The Naked And Famous and Darwin Deez
amongst others earlier in the day.
The festival continues across other venues tonight with sets from Guillemots,
Morning Parade, We Are Scientists, SBTRKT
and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
