Plus Brian Fallon celebrates wedding anniversary onstage
During the coda of ‘The ’59 Sound’ frontman Brian Fallon sang “My name is Geraldine, I’m your social worker” in tribute to the Glasgow band’s song ‘Geraldine’. Glasvegas played a rapturously-received set of their own last night at the Scottish festival.
The New Jersey band’s set, which started an hour later than previously billed thanks to The Game pulling out of his scheduled slot, drew most heavily from their second album ‘The ’59 Sound’.
However, older tracks such as fan-favourite ‘Say I Won’t (Recognise)’ went down a storm among the large crowd, who clapped and sang along heartily.
The day was also a momentous one for Fallon, who announced that it was his fifth wedding anniversary. “Thanks to you guys for making my wife’s mum not think I’m a chump!” he told the audience.
The Gaslight Anthem played:
‘Old White Lincoln’
‘Even Cowgirls Get The Blues’
‘The ’59 Sound’
‘Say I Won’t (Recognise)’
‘Miles Davis & The Cool’
‘Meet Me By The River’s Edge’
