Fans encouraged to get messy during secret gig

A Ting Tings‘ secret gig in Manchester last Friday (February 27) resulted in chaos after the band encouraged fans to cover the venue – and themselves – in paint.

As NME.COM previously reported, the band had advised fans to take advantage of the free protective clothing being offered at the gig.

A video, who you can watch below, shows the extent of the destruction caused by fans.

The band’s Jules De Martino explained before the gig that the band’s intentions were simple.

“It’s really simple,” he said. “We just wanna paint on walls and throw paint around!”

Fans at the gig were also encouraged to paint vinyl sleeves for a limited edition Calvin Harris remix of The Ting Tings‘ latest single ‘We Walk’.
