Fyre! Have been supporting Anastacia on her European tour, and tonight was the only UK date in the tour, at a sold out Shepherds Bush Empire. It's a slightly odd pairing as Fyre! are a band that you'd expect to play in front of a rock crowd and indeed they've supported Michael Schenker recently.  

Fyre! don't let the fact that this may not be their natural audience nice bother them and it doesn't take long before they have the crowd well and truly on their side. Part of this comes down to the music - great blues infused hard rock with great female vocals, but s lot also comes from how the band are on stage.  
While some bands stand there and play, there's no staying still for any of the band members here. All of them move around and look like they're having a great time, but it's singer/guitarist Alejandra who really  lights up the stage with her performance. She looks to be having s huge amount of fun on stage as she moves around, interacts with the other band members or the audience, and at times bends over so far backward as she plays that you wonder how she manages to avoid falling over backward. For most songs she plays guitar and sings so is tied to the mic while singing, but takes every opportunity to move away, but when she puts the guitar down and just sings she's free to roam the stage and really liven things up.

This was my first time seeing Fyre! and I certainly hope they come back to the UK again soon for more gigs as they're such a great live band.
