For the first time in 5 years Tokio Hotel took to the stage in London, with a career spanning over 10 years their show at Islington Assembly Halls is the smallest of their current tour, the ‘feel it all’ tour, but it was hard to realise with the electric atmosphere in the room.
The show began with a spectacular projected lights show followed by Bill Kaulits (lead singer) gracing the stage in a flamboyant gold cape and matching crown, claiming the stage as his own.
From start to finish the show show was packed with energy and enthusiasm from both the band and the fans, who could not have been more excited to be there, many having travelled from the likes of France and the bands home country of Germany.
Throughout Bill changed his outfit a variety of times, from gold plated trousers to flamboyant white shirt with flared sleeves and everything in between. Giving chances for his bandmates, Tom Kaulitz (Bills twin), Bass, and Georg Listing, Drums, to show off their own musical talents as the battled it out in a drum solo.
VIP fans joined the band on the small stage for Kings of Suburbia, which added to the energy that was already creating an incredible atmostphere within the room.
The band slowed things down allowing enthusiastic crowd to catch their breath, with an acoustic rendition of Rescue Me, which was very well received by the crowd who sang every word back, which were followed by Invaded and Run Run Run. Things slowly picked up again for the remainder or the set.
Heart Get No Sleep saw Bill fire a CO2 gun above the crowd, making it snow, before heading back to his mic to finish the show.
The set came to a close with the German hit Durch Den Monsun and Great Day,
It may have been a while since they last graced a UK stage but they certainly staked their place as one of, if not the, best live German band around.
