TEN years ago Scouting for Girls released their famous self-titled debut album, and this year in celebration they have embarked on a celebratory nationwide tour, stopping at The Tramshed, Cardiff.

With their new album Ten add Ten: The Very Best of Scouting for Girls, this tour was to celebrate everything that makes Scouting for Girls such a success as well as bring to light new released songs. 

The Tramshed was the perfect venue and a sell-out. The intimate venue really brought to life their songs that I enjoyed as a teenager.  

They began the show with I Need a Holiday followed by crowd pleaser Heartbeat. The crowd all sang along and were not disappointed as they played all the classics; Elvis Ain’t Dead, This Ain’t a Love Song, I Wish I Was James Bond and many more.

From the new album, we were also treated to their newly released single Dancing in the Daylight with their loyal fanbase already knowing all the words. As a surprise to the audience, they also covered Bon Jovi’s Living on a Prayer – a fun twist in the set list. 

At the end of the show, the crowd demanded an encore, with the last song She’s So Lovely erupting from the stage. This was a perfect way to end the show, with many audience members singing on their way home.
