It’s hardly surprising that we’re not the only ones devastated about London’s indie sweethearts, The Maccabees, splitting up. Since their farewell tour got underway last week at Manchester’s O2 Apollo, some of music’s brightest stars have been mourning the loss of Orlando, Felix, Sam, Rupert and Hugo as a band.

Their final, bittersweet show on July 1 at Alexandra Palace — which saw Jack Penate and Jamie T also join the band on stage — was packed to the rafters with celebs and music fans alike, celebrating The Maccabees’ four albums. Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford was spotted moshing away — and, fortunately, for those who weren’t there, Twitter user Fred Nathan uploaded the clip to Twitter.

We were also blessed with a video of Game of Throne’s Kit Harington, grooving to their hit Love You Better on someone’s shoulders, was also uploaded to the site. In other Kit Harington news, see him flex his biceps at Glastonbury 2017.

And piano man Tom Odell was there — though we have no footage to confirm if he was crying his eyes out — too, posting “stunning final show by the maccabees last night. you will be sorely missed” to Instagram.

Yannis Philippakis, the frontman of Foals proclaimed on Twitter, that he was: “Forever thankful to @themaccabees for all the music they gave us. Peers, friends & brothers. Whatever comes next will be great.”

Fellow indie band Everything Everything tweeted that it was “very moving” to see their friends and contemporaries bow out with “extraordinary grace, finesse and dignity”. And Mystery Jets, who supported the band during the farewell tour, told Twitter that they were trying “not to break the f down in tears” before the last gig.

In response to the “Thank you” message the lads showed behind them during their encore, Radio 1’s Greg James tweeted: “No, thank YOU @themaccabees. Also, we really wouldn’t mind if you changed your minds and didn’t split up. Cheers X” which prompted Bastille’s Dan Smith to reply with a caps lock “AGREED.”

And while the band’s last show might have meant we were in the same room as Marcus Mumford, Tom Odell and Kit Harington, we can’t help but agree with Greg (and literally everyone else) that we really wouldn’t mind if the boys changed their minds and didn’t split up.
