Review: Fast & Furious LIVE at Birmingham Arena
Being huge Fast & Furious fans, it’s fair to say we got very excited when we heard it was getting a live show (cut to debates on the correct order to watch the films in – Tokyo Drift after FF6, obviously!)
Whether you’re a die-hard fan of the franchise or just into your cars, Fast and Furious Live is a must. Featuring 40 vehicles, including some of the actual ones used in the films, it’s full of screeching tyres, roaring engines, and impressive stunts. The lighting and music add to the experience, with the 2 Fast 2 Furious section being a particular favourite.
Some of the best scenes from the octad (real word) are replicated live, with cut scenes of the films to add context. Without giving too much away, highlights include drifting, flying and a tank! Oh and the iconic orange Supra!
Don’t expect a free ride without some co-pilot duties - spectators are encouraged to get involved with voting for car specs, virtual racing and even a drag race!
All in all, it’s a Supra (sorry, super) show, and well worth catching if you can.
