Bombay Bicycle Club are an English indie rock band from Crouch End, London, consisting of Jack Steadman (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Jamie MacColl (guitar), Suren de Saram (drums) and Ed Nash (bass). They are guitar-fronted and have experimented with different genres, including folk, electronica, world music and indie rock.
The band were given the opening slot on 2006's V Festival after winning a competition. They subsequently released two EPs and their debut single "Evening/Morning". Since then, the band has released four albums including So Long, See You Tomorrow which topped the album charts in February 2014. The band has toured worldwide as a headlining act, playing North America, Australia, Europe and the Far East.
Their 2014 tour finished on 13 December at Earls Court Arena, their concert being the final event ever to take place there before its demolition. During the concert, band member Jamie MacColl introduced a special guest, saying; "This man gave me my first guitar and was one of the first people to play this venue and by my count has played here more than 27 times." This was Pink Floyd member David Gilmour, who then played with the band on their song "Rinse Me Down" before a performance of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here".
