Uncut favourites convert yet another festival crowd
The Hold Steady ended their latest tour with a magnificent set on a hot summer afternoon at the Uncut-sponsored Latitude festival in Suffolk.
After two solid months on the road, Craig Finn and his tireless road warriors proud their high-intensity, euphoric brand of rock’n’roll to Latitude. The tour has included an exclusive show at Uncut’s 10th Birthday party, the Glastonbury Festival and, yesterday, GuilFest.
Far from showing signs of fatigue, The Hold Steady were, if anything, more committed and energised than usual. Keyboardist Franz Nicolai raised his striking sartorial standards by wearing a dinner suit.
