Pendulum returned to the live stage at Preston’s 53 Degrees on Friday 29th May 2009.

The band were in great form as they ripped through some of their choice cuts from the albums ‘In Silico’ and ‘Hold Your Colour’ in front of a packed out and absolutely boiling venue.

The sound was fantastic as a huge stage setup meant the crowd were deafened from the outset and they responded with an energetic response everytime they were asked for it with MC Verse working the crowd brilliantly to keep the tempo going.

Biggest song ‘Propane Nightmares’ was wheeled out early on and sent the crowd into a frenzy and the constant teasing of big tune ‘Granite’ had the crowd bouncing regularly.

A soulful version of ‘Otherside’ chilled the tempo a bit and allowed everyone to get their breath back before the band reappeared after a big countdown clock to launch into ‘Tarantula’ that sent the venue crazy.

It was a great return to the live scene for the band and they’ll no doubt be ripping up festivals this summer.
