From the moment their debut album, Said And Done, crashed into the UK number 1 spot in 1995, the five lads from the North side of Dublin have not put a foot wrong and were enthusastically received by the large Hastings audience which enjoyed hits including No Matter What, Love Me For A Reason, Words, Father & Son, All That I Need, Isn’t It A Wonder, Baby Can I Hold You, Picture Of You and many more.

There was also a good reaction for support act, local singer and songwriter Rich Lown.

Music fans had more to celebrate on Saturday when Ocean Colour Scene gave a storming performance on the pier.
