If you were one of the lucky ones who managed to score a ticket to one of Flight Facilities ‘The Return Flight’ (very few intimate concerts) then you’ll know just how amazing it was! Performing at 170 Russell Street in Melbourne, the electronic producer duo that is Hugo Gruzman and Jimmy Lyell had a sold-out Melbourne show, performing only to those who managed to get a one-way ticket to their flight.
With live vocalists, playing everyone’s favourites, and of course their new track, ‘Need You’, it was hard not to get caught up in their live synths. Not forgetting their roots and how they came to be, remixes of covers were also thrown into the night, with the crowd loving every minute of it!
The duo also unveiled their brand-new song, ‘All Your Love’ featuring Dustin Tebbutt, for the very first time with Tebbutt playing acoustics live. Announcing that they were “shitting themselves” to play this for the crowd, they went ahead, and of course nailed it! Seriously, what can’t these guys do?
Coming back for their well-deserved encore, the duo ended with what was everyone’s favourite, ‘Crave You’, leaving their audience on a high and only wanting more.
Sounds like this short tour was just the warm up to oil the cogs, with the duo announcing that they’ll be back during the year with something even bigger! Don’t miss your chance to see them on their next tour.
