Primal Scream frontman takes his 'Get Ready' role...
PRIMAL SCREAM‘s BOBBY GILLESPIE was the surprise guest last night (October 10) at
LONDON BRIXTON ACADEMY gig.
Bobby, who was in the news yesterday after being fined £2,500 for breaching a noise abatement order at his old Maida Vale home, joined Barney and the boys onstage to recreate his role on the band’s current ‘Get Ready’ album, and to sing backing vocals on ‘Rock The Shack’, the penultimate song of the gig.
Stars in the audience included legendary producer Arthur Baker, Felix Da Housecat, BBC newsreader Jeremy Vine and DJs Pete Tong and Paul Oakenfold.
Songs in the set, which was rapturously received by the sell-out crowd, included Joy Division songs ‘Atmosphere’ and ‘Transmission’, as well as rarely heard New Order album track ‘Your Silent Face’, a fans’ favourite. It concluded with the band’s biggest ever hit ‘Blue Monday’.
The full setlist was:
’60 Miles An Hour’
‘Touched By The Hand Of God’
‘Bizarre Love Triangle’
‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’
‘Rock The Shack’
The band play London Brixton Academy again tonight and tomorrow. Both shows are sold out.
