Jet, The Hiss and David Viner conquer Glasgow in style...
Organisers at the QMU venue were forced to bring in extra security to cope with fans of Jet, The Hiss and David Viner.
The gig was a homecoming of sorts for Jet as they kept thanking everyone from Motherwelll. Brothers Nic and Chris Cester have family in the town.
During Jet’s set, Chris repeatedly told the crowd that this was “the best fucking crowd we’ve ever played”, as they belted out a selection of songs from their album ’Get Born’.
“I couldn’t believe the reaction we got,” Chris told NME.COM. “It was absolute mayhem.”
Earlier in the day, 400 people turned up to a HMV store in Glasgow city centre for a signing session. They were asked to sign all manner of bizarre objects, including porn playing cards, a filthy sock and body parts.
Support band Jet got one of the biggest cheers of the evening when they closed with a cover of ’Columbia’ by Oasis. Their singer Adrian Barrera told NME.COM: “We’ve been at home in Atlanta for the last few weeks just rehearsing, rehearsing, rehearsing. We want this to be the best fucking tour ever.”
Opening the evening’s event was English blues-man David Viner. “I was terrified before I went on,” he told NME.COM backstage. “This is the biggest crowd I’ve ever played for.”
After the gig finished, those who hadn’t been able meet Jet earlier in the day were in luck. The group waited outside the venue for an hour, chatting and signing more autographs.
