My recent experiences attending a My Passion gig at Club 85, Hitchin lead me to do some in depth research into the bands history and their fan base.
Now not to be sexist at all, but I will begin by saying their fans consist of mainly girls. No problems here, I’m not complaining. It does lead to them being stereotyped though. The band members are all good looking, young guys – any teenage girl not to like them would be mad or blind.
Most bands wouldn’t expect to see people coming to see them from the other side of the country though, or from abroad even. The band who were playing a small show in preparation for the Kerrang! Tour with Young Guns are now playing all over the UK and indeed this has people flying in from all over – for what most would consider to be ‘small’ shows.
The gig at Club 85 on 19th January had several girls travel from Oxford, Birmingham and Bournemouth for the one show. Some were then traveling on to Nottingham in the morning to follow the band across further gigs.
The band have gotten so good, and they deserve the fans they have got.
They honestly are lovely guys, friendly and supporting and appreciate the continuous support from everyone. I really do hope they do well.
Personally, I think their fan base is mad. On the other hand the band are from Hitchin, and I class it as my home town. So haters, please remove yourself from society!
