Approaching the Boiler Shop behind Newcastle’s Central Station I sort of knew what to expect. Having seen Miles Kane before and being a big fan I knew that he would put on an electric performance. Upon entry this was confirmed as a platinum blonde Miles came out to rapturous applause.
Miles’ discography landed well with the crowd as hits like “Blame it on the Summertime”, “Come Closer” and “Rearrange” made the mosphit go wild in exciting scenes where beer cups were flying and chants of “Miles! Miles! Miles f*cking Kane!” were reverberating around the venue. ‘Blame it on the Summertime’ stacks up well compared to Miles’ previous material, drawing on the upbeat sound of The Last Shadow Puppets’ ‘Miracle Aligner’- from his side project alongside Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner.
Miles’ guitar hero heroics made the instrument sing as the crowd watched on in awe, alongside some great showmanship with the crowd. Support Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard also came up on stage for a cover version of LCD Soundsystem’s ‘Daft Punk’ is playing at my house’- a surprising choice for both artists but one which was incredibly well executed and sounded fantastic live.

Overall, Miles produced an excellent show and with ‘Blame it on the Summertime’ landing so well with fans this is incredibly promising for the scouse star’s future releases.
