There​ ​has​ ​been​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​hype​ ​around​ ​Pvris​ ​since​ ​the​ ​release​ ​of​ ​their​ ​latest​ ​album,​ ​‘All​ ​We Know​ ​Of​ ​Heaven,​ ​All​ ​We​ ​Need​ ​Of​ ​Hell’,​ ​so​ ​when​ ​a​ ​tour​ ​was​ ​announced​ ​supporting​ ​this​ ​you knew​ ​this​ ​was​ ​going​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a​ ​show​ ​not​ ​to​ ​miss.  


Tyne 3


To​ ​start​ ​the​ ​show​ ​off​ ​we​ ​had​ ​a​ ​three​ ​piece​ ​band​ ​called​ ​Tyne.​ ​They​ ​were​ ​a​ ​chilled​ ​out​ ​pop style​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​band​ ​that​ ​had​ ​you​ ​swaying​ ​along​ ​to​ ​their​ ​music.​ ​They​ ​had​ ​a​ ​very​ ​good​ ​vibe going​ ​throughout​ ​their​ ​set​ ​that​ ​you​ ​just​ ​couldn't​ ​help​ ​but​ ​get​ ​along​ ​with,​ ​despite​ ​the​ ​fact​ ​the didn't​ ​move​ ​around​ ​the​ ​stage​ ​much​ ​they​ ​made​ ​their​ ​presence​ ​very​ ​much​ ​known​ ​and​ ​made sure​ ​you​ ​knew​ ​their​ ​name.  


Coin​ ​brought​ ​another​ ​fun​ ​element​ ​to​ ​the​ ​stage​ ​as​ ​they​ ​played.​ ​The​ ​second​ ​band​ ​of​ ​the​ ​night made​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​use​ ​the​ ​flashing​ ​coloured​ ​lights​ ​to​ ​their​ ​benefit,​ ​utilizing​ ​every​ ​part​ ​of​ ​the​ ​stage and​ ​never​ ​staying​ ​in​ ​one​ ​place​ ​for​ ​too​ ​long.

Finally​ ​it​ ​was​ ​time​ ​for​ ​the​ ​band​ ​everyone​ ​had​ ​been​ ​waiting​ ​for.​ ​It​ ​was​ ​very​ ​close​ ​to​ ​a​ ​sold​ ​out show,​ ​so​ ​the​ ​room​ ​was​ ​packed​ ​from​ ​front​ ​to​ ​back,​ ​everyone​ ​angling​ ​for​ ​a​ ​proper​ ​view​ ​of​ ​the band.​ ​Opening​ ​up​ ​with​ ​one​ ​of​ ​their​ ​newest​ ​songs,​ ​‘Heaven’,​ ​really​ ​pulled​ ​everyone​ ​in​ ​the room​ ​together.​ ​Lead​ ​singer​ ​Lynn​ ​started​ ​off​ ​at​ ​a​ ​keyboard​ ​slightly​ ​further​ ​back​ ​of​ ​center stage​ ​before​ ​jumping​ ​to​ ​the​ ​front​ ​and​ ​getting​ ​really​ ​into​ ​it. 


They​ ​played​ ​their​ ​hits,​ ​moving​ ​between​ ​their​ ​two​ ​albums​ ​and​ ​including​ ​everything​ ​they​ ​could so​ ​everyone​ ​got​ ​a​ ​taste​ ​of​ ​a​ ​song​ ​they​ ​liked.​ ​The​ ​room​ ​was​ ​also​ ​treated​ ​to​ ​one​ ​of​ ​their slower​ ​songs,​ ​‘You​ ​And​ ​I’,​ ​before​ ​a​ ​new​ ​stripped​ ​back​ ​version​ ​of​ ​‘Same​ ​Soul’​ ​came​ ​out​ ​of them,​ ​making​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​room​ ​mellow​ ​down​ ​for​ ​just​ ​a​ ​moment​ ​before​ ​erupting​ ​into​ ​cheers once​ ​again​ ​for​ ​the​ ​music​ ​being​ ​played.​ ​


They​ ​knew​ ​how​ ​to​ ​play​ ​to​ ​a​ ​crowd​ ​and​ ​get​ ​everyone moving​ ​and​ ​jumping​ ​around​ ​to​ ​whatever​ ​it​ ​was​ ​they​ ​were​ ​playing,​ ​hooking​ ​everyone​ ​and keeping​ ​their​ ​attention​ ​throughout​ ​the​ ​night.​ ​Ending​ ​on​ ​a​ ​high​ ​of​ ​‘No​ ​Mercy”’ ​brought​ ​the whole​ ​night​ ​together.
