Gallows watched by Kate Nash at Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival

Frank Carter takes on the might of Topshop during Lock Up Stage performance

Gallows were watched by Kate Nash at their Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival show today (August 24).

The ’Foundations’ singer watched the band from the side of the stage of their performance in The Lock Up stage.

Meanwhile singer Frank Carter attacked the Topman-branded water that was avaialble onsite.

He held up the carton and dismissively said: “What’s this?” about the carton of drink that was branded with the high street logo.

Carter then jumped on the amp during a powerful version ’Abandon Ship’.

Members of the crowd then threw their trainers onstage, and after ’6 Years’ Carter held up a trainer and said: “Is this yours?” to a member of the crowd. “Are you sure?” he checked, before chucking the shoe back in.

Before closer ’Orchestra Of Wolves’ Carter told the crowd: “This has been one of the best fucking nights of our lives, thank you Leeds.”

Carter lept into the crowd during the song and two members of the crowd invaded the stage and took the mic, singing Carter’s parts of the songs.

‘Come Friendly Bombs’

‘Abandon Ship’

‘Just Because You Sleep Next To Me Doesn’t Mean You’re Safe’
