“Last time Nothing But Thieves were in the Welsh capital was May 2017, in the considerably more intimate Globe. They’ve proved they are worthy of their arena slot over the past year, though, and this set begins with mysterious, stage-obscuring smoke, clearing to reveal NBT in shadow behind the backdrop. From the opening I Was Just A Kid, the band provide a strong setlist mixing tracks from both studio albums; the crowd opens up for songs like I’m Not Made By Design, Live Like Animals and Itch after vocalist Conor Mason announces, “What I love about coming home is that you know what to do… mosh.””
