Win tick­ets to see Gaslight An­thems at Glas­gow’s 02

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

Amer­i­can rock­ers the Gaslight An­them re­turn to Glas­gow next month.

And the Ticket has five pairs of tick­ets to give away for their show.

They’ll be at the O2 Academy in Glas­gow on Mon­day June 9.

Last year the New Jer­sey four­some, famed for their blue-col­lar rock, re­leased fifth al­bum Get Hurt.

In­spired by singer Brain Fal­lon’s di­vorce from his wife of 10 years, the group tried to vary their style more on the record.

Speak­ing at the time, Fal­lon said: “It was a real work­ing out process.

“I just said, I’m go­ing to write what I think and what I’m deal­ing with at this mo­ment.

“I don’t know if it’s the truth or if this feel­ing is go­ing to last, but I’m just go­ing to let it out. I just let it go.

“That’s what was hap­pen­ing, that was real.”

The Gaslight An­them’s five al­bums have earned them com­par­isons to the likes of Bruce Spring­steen and the Clash for their ful­lon rock ‘n’ roll, while their live shows are known for be­ing rowdy, wild af­fairs.

Pre­vi­ous al­bums like The 59 Sound and Hand­writ­ten were hugely praised by crit­ics.

We’ve got five pairs of tick­ets to give away to their Academy gig, which can be won by an­swer­ing this sim­ply ques­tion.

A limited num­ber of tick­ets for the gig are still avail­able.
