Wednesday 06 October 2021. INHALER + WET LEG + DYLAN FRASER live at The Forum. DYLAN FRASER arrived on stage at 7.30pm for their 25 mins set. As they are the first of three bands on stage, there is a lot of band equipment to navigate. They play a good set amongst the three drum kits that are set up on stage. WET LEG arrived on stage at 8.20pm for their 25 mins set. A really good set , with female vocals. INHALER arrived on stage at 9.15pm for their 70 mins set. Inhaler are an Irish rock band originating from Dublin. The band consists of vocalist/guitarist Elijah Hewson, whose father is Bono from U2....their debut album was number one in the UK and Ireland. This is their biggest headline show to date...and it is sold out. A nice mix of younger fans and older U2 fans , who are curious to see Bono's son on stage. BONO is not here , but I have a nice chat with his wife Ali , up in the circle. I told her I saw U2 supporting Talking Heads at Hammersmith Odeon when their debut album came out. She said Bono "was away writing his memoir". The singer does look and sound a bit like his famous dad. Lots of uptempo catchy pop rock in the vein of Blossoms or Vaccines. A nice light show and the band put on a really good show. At the end a fan gives them an Irish flag that says "Inhaler World Domination". A one song encore, but they didn't actually leave the stage.
