Just witnessed your
best live gig?.. send us a review!
Shepherds Bush Empire 1 October 2009
The Wildhearts were making a brave move on this tour by playing new CD
'Chutzpah' in it's entirety. Some gigs earlier in the tour it had
left the audience a little subdued, but word of mouth had already reached
the London fans, on this the last gig of the UK tour, and a party

gang portrayed in the first half of this set, after which there was a
short five minute break then wham bam we were suckerpunched with a
rollercoaster of hits.
after classic got us jumping up and down with glee, it seemed like the
best encore ever. Ginger was in wonderland tonight.
gig, once again the Wildhearts didn't disappoint. Next time the
Wildhearts are in town, make sure you go where the people go.
