While some people were busy dressing as ghosts, zombies or superbly unfunny Anchorman characters, we donned our denim jackets and headed down to Manchester Academy to watch Asking Alexandria do what they do best.

Support: The Ghost Inside, Crown The Empire, Secrets
Supports for the 15-date Obnoxious tour were Secrets, Crown The Empire and The Ghost Inside. While the latter have been making headway in the UK with their beatdown-heavy metalcore, there's no doubting who the stars of tonight's show are. The larger-than-life rockstar Danny Worsnop (complete with big-ass beard and feather in his hat) stands front and centre with his mic draped in the union flag – a rather fitting reminder that the band are very much British, despite their figurehead now residing in Los Angeles (which you can read all about in the new issue of Metal Hammer).
