The trio opened with Sanctify and followed that with Shine, two of their best known songs.

When Olly crouched down and said to the crowd: "I want to make eye contact with every single person here," the crowd went wild.

A string of hits followed including Play, Desire, Eyes Shut and If You’re Over Me, before the band finished with the song that launched their career, the number one smash King.
