How To Save a Life...just blew me of those goosebump moments, can't wait to see them again!

Jackone Heys
Ah...The Fray, wasn't expecting the gem of a performance they gave but it was a highlight of the day! Loved the fact that Jo Whiley got to play was strangely comic in a serious musical sense (of course!) How To Save A Life was a great way to end the set and everyone was singing! - top notch!

Daniel Black
