Venue: Academy 2, Manchester
Support: Smudge, HORSE The Band, MUCC, As I Lay Dying, Story Of The Year
Hosting mainly hardcore, metal, and alternative bands, annual worldwide music rock tour Taste Of Chaos exhibits a selection of bands that aren’t really all that huge, but people within that market of music would probably consider them fairly popular. When the tour hit the UK this year, the venue sizes have reduced dramatically from that of last year, with one show on the tour leg decreasing from Manchester Apollo to Manchester Academy, and then degrading once more to Manchester Academy 2. Though, this doesn’t affect the quality of the bands on show for the paying fans.
