The Fratellis’ ‘Chelsea Dagger’ rings out around T In The Park

Huge reception for Scottish rockers in their home country

The Fratellis played an evening slot on the Main Stage of the T In The Park festival today (July 12), causing an enormous sing-a-long to their hit ‘Chelsea Dagger’.

Fans had been yelling the song’s tune ten minutes before the band took the stage at the Scottish festival, anticipating what is quickly becoming the event’s anthem.

The Glasgow band played a slew of songs that inspired similar – if not quite as loud – sing-a-longs during their set, with the likes of ‘Baby Fratelli’ and opener ‘Mistress Mabel’ inspiring huge amounts of crowd participation.


The Fratellis played the aforementioned ‘Chelsea Dagger’, complete with an extended squalling guitar introduction, one song from the end of their set, ensuring that the fan-aided chorus echoed across the festival site as the sun was setting on the second day of T In The Park.

The band closed their set with ‘Milk And Money’, before they left the Main Stage to make way for Rage Against The Machine, who are set to play a headline slot next.

‘Mistress Mabel’


‘Look Out Sunshine’
