The 'When She Was Mine' four-piece say it was an "honour" to launch the tour in Liverpool.

Lawson have hailed the first night of their 'Hometowns' UK tour as the "best night" of their lives.

The 'Taking Over Me' four-piece kicked off the countrywide jaunt with a show at Liverpool's O2 Academy on Wednesday evening (31st October), singer Andy Brown's home city, and took to Twitter after the concert to thank fans for helping them put on a good show.

Thank you Liverpool for one of the best nights of my life," Andy tweeted, while Adam agreed with his tweet: "Oh my god. Liverpool that was the best night of my life. Thank you so so so much from the bottom of my heart.

"Liverpool that's the best show we've done to date. I can't thank you enough," guitarist Joel Peat also posted.

While talking to Capital ahead of the show last night Lawson admitted the opening night was a "massive one" and said they were honoured to open the tur in Liverpool.

"It's a massive one. We're opening the tour at the Liverpool Academy, so it's a dream come true, where I've been to a lot of gigs so it's an honour," Andy revealed exclusively to Capital FM ahead of the gig. 

Lawson launched their debut album 'Chapman Square' in late October and have released a string of successful singles including 'When She Was Mine' and 'Standing In The Dark'.

Lawson continue their 'Hometowns' UK tour tonight with a show at The Leadmill in Sheffield before moving on to concerts in Brighton, Nottingham and London.
