2010 USA Tour a success!
Thanks to everybody who came out to see us during our 2010 American Tour. We had an absolutely fantastic time and were blown away, as always, by the warmth and generosity of our fans in the States.
Highlights included a bakingly hot return to Union Square in New York, a full house at Burlington Amphitheatre on 16 July and a crowd of two thousand people turning up to watch us play in front of the East River in Astoria Park on the last night of the tour whilst the sun set over the Manhattan skyline…! Unforgettable.
Loads of you have uploaded your photos to our Fan Pics page on Flickr – click here to check them out (or add your own).
Our spies on the East Coast tell us we had a double-page spread in the New York Daily News (which apparently has a readership of two million people) on Tuesday, following our headline slot at Astoria Park. More details to come. For more USA press on the tour, see below:

“Gorgeous harmonies, three hot guys and that quirky English humor. What more could a girl want…?”
