Plus Brian Fallon tells audience to watch Arcade Fire
The Gaslight Anthem have revealed that they feel like the UK is “home” during their Main Stage Leeds Festival set today (August 27).
The band played a mix of songs from their latest album ‘American Slang’ and their older records ‘Sink Or Swim’ and ‘The 59′ Sound’ for their mid-afternoon performance.
Lead singer Brian Fallon told the crowd: “We’ve been whirling around the rest of Europe, and now I feel like we’re home.”
The Gaslight Anthem also praised two of the other bands on the bill.
The band battled through sound problems when Fallon’s microphone cut out during ‘American Slang’, although normal service was quickly resumed.
The Gaslight Anthem played:
‘Old White Lincoln’
‘Diamond Church Street Choir’
‘The ’59 Sound’
‘We Came To Dance’
‘The Spirit Of Jazz’
‘Here’s Looking At You Kid’
