Royal Blood want to play the home football ground of Brighton Hove & Albion F.C.

Speaking to Radio X ahead of their epic homecoming gig at On The Beach Brighton last week, Ben Thatcher spoke how it felt to play to home crowds and what was next on their bucket list.

Asked about the next "big thing," they'd like to tick off, the drummer replied "Off the top of my head as a Brighton fan, the AMEX [stadium] is my ideal place to play."

The Mountains At Midnight rocker added: "Apart from that I'll take anything. I love playing music and I love playing gigs. If they're small ones or if they're stadiums, I'll play them all. Whatever it is I'll take."

Royal Blood went on to play an 18-track set, which included hits from across their career including their eponymous, debut studio album, How Did It Get So Dark, Typhoons, and their forthcoming fourth LP Down To The Water Below.

Addressing the crowd halfway through their set frontman Mike Kerr said emotionally: "I'm tripping out really hard right now. Thank you so much for coming along tonight. We don't deserve it."

Highlights from the night included the likes off Lights Out, Little Monster a tender and emotional performance of All We Have Is Now and a huge blistering hot finale with the set being capped off with their Out of the Black anthem.
