The Scots band are joined by Twisted Wheel and Tommy Sparks at gig
The band, who are celebrating the release of new album ‘Which Bitch?’, were in playful mood as they played a 20-song set supported by Twisted Wheel and Tommy Sparks.
Launching straight into ‘Glass Smash’, the band provoked a mass sing-a-long from the audience right from the beginning of their set.
The View were joined on four songs by three string players, introduced by the band as ‘Dirty Pretty Strings’. On ‘Distant Doubloon’, frontman Kyle Falconer performed backed only by the string players, while his bandmates looked on from the side of the stage.
The gig was marred towards its end when a fight broke out between the one of the bands friends and the venue staff.
The band rushed offstage to see what was happening, with only Falconer returning to the stage to play a solo rendition of Oasis‘ ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’.
The View played:
‘Wasted Little DJs’
‘One Off Pretender’
‘Typical Time 2’
‘Face For The Radio’
‘Jimmy’s Crazy Conspiracy’
‘Give Back The Sun’
‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’
Speaking NME.COM shortly before taking to the stage, Falconer revealed that he was especially excited about seeing support act Twisted Wheel. “They’re a fucking amazing band,” he said. “We’ve toured with them and they’re all top boys as well.”
Prior to Twisted Wheel‘s set, newcomer Tommy Sparks opened proceedings with a 25-minute set that included his debut single ‘I’m A Rope’, released on February 16.
Previewing material from his forthcoming album, Sparks drew a strong reaction from the crowd, with opener ‘Much Too Much’ and ‘She’s Got Me Dancing’ going down particularly well.
