The View attract the stars
A star studded audience turned out to see The View perform an intimate gig in London last night (January 26).

Towers Of London, Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie and Dirty Pretty Things singer Carl Barat were among the stars who watched the Dundee four-piece play a 45 minute set for an XFM fan show at the Islington Academy.

In between chants of "The View, The View, The View are on fire" the band rolled through a host of tracks and hit singles from their debut 'Hats Off To The Buskers'.

Kicking off with album opener 'Comin Down', the band went on to perform the likes of 'Wasted Little DJs', 'Same Jeans', 'The Don' and 'Skag Trendy'.

The band also threw in b-side 'Posh Boys' before they were greeted with the loudest cheer of the night for crowd favourite 'Superstar Tradesman'.
