After a fresh-faced Mel shared the candid video at 6am the day after the first gig on the reunion tour, her fellow bandmembers took to the photo-sharing site to gush over their performance and thank their ‘supportive’ fans.
Speaking into the camera whilst lying in bed, she appeared irked as she said: ‘Hey guys thank you for attending our show tonight in Dublin. We will see you in Cardiff and hopefully the vocals and the sound will be much, much better.’
