Tom Clarke, frontman of The Enemy, played an intimate set at the O2 Institute on Monday June 26th as part of a special acoustic UK tour, marking the 10th anniversary of their debut album, ‘We’ll Live and Die In These Towns’.
The Enemy went their separate ways in 2016, going out on a high following a sold out farewell tour with a string of additional dates in their hometown of Coventry. It was said that a lack of support from the media following their final album, It’s Automatic, contributed greatly to their split.
However, their loyal following celebrated The Enemy’s 2001 number 1 platinum-selling debut in an intimate acoustic set, at Birmingham’s O2 Institute2. Playing out everything from ‘Aggro’, ‘We’ll Live and Die In These Towns’, right through to the limited edition vinyl release favourite ‘It’s Not Ok’. Stripped back to bare essentials, Clarke gifted fans with the sounds of the album which defined The Enemy and paved their way through the industry. Close to home, the Birmingham date was brimmed with special moments celebrating a band who put their hometown on the map.
