'The afternoon set lacks punch'

Jimmy Eat World - Leeds Festival 2011 review

Photographer: Shirlaine ForrestGraeme Johnston on 28 August 2011

With winds so high that one of the video screens has been removed, Jimmy Eat World have real sound issues to contend with as they hit the Leeds stage.

Their afternoon set lacks the punch for a crowd wrestling last-day hangovers and while they give their all, the windswept Arizona pop-punks are the only ones who care.

They do manage to go out with a bang though, as 'Pain' and 'Salt, Sweat, Sugar' are treated like headliner encores.
