I was lucky enough to get tickets to see The Lumineers in the Manchester Albert Hall in April. It was definitely one of the best concerts I've ever been to: they were incredible live and had such a good connection with the crowd, plus I went with a friend I hadn't seen in ten years so it was lovely to catch up and bond over similar music loves.
