How many years have you been going to gigs when the band band ends the set to a smattering of applause and returns for the ‘encore’.

That most odd of rock n roll traditions- the return to the stage to play the mini hit to a crowd that has finally woken up- of course it can sometimes be a great moment but often it seems like a chore or has little point.


Lancaster’s fab The Lovely Eggs have now launched a campaign against the encore and have even written a manifesto against it on their website which you can view here.

Lovely Eggs launch campaign against ‘fake encores’ – is it time to end this dull tradition?
