This is Brian right after he jumped off the balcony at Koko last night.
It was one of the best gig ever. These guys are amazing!
GASLIGHT ANTHEM AT THE KOKO WERE AMAZING!
Brian Fallon disappeared from the stage with an impish look on his face and then reappeared on a first storey balcony. He pretended he was going to jump off, causing the techie who’d evidently been charged with ensuring he didn’t do anything stupid to damn-near have a heart attack. Then Brian proceeded to hook one leg over the railings, looked to see if anyone was going to stop him, threw a second leg over the railings so he was just kinda hanging on with his feet on a ledge and then actually jumped into the pit! It was mental - the moment he jumped, that same techie jumped over the barriers and into the pit to fish him out and Fallon spent the next 20mins on stage giggling to himself. Fucking legend.
Brian Fallon’s face. His little happy and excited face when the was hanging off that balcony. Even when he was giving the international signals for “you’ll catch me right? you’ll catch me?”
It was awesome. The balcony’s pretty high above the crowd. I say high. I wouldn’t throw myself backwards off it like he did, but then I don’t have like… a few hundred people gathered together that I trust to catch me.

The Gaslight Anthem - 45
omg I am so excited for the new album. omgomgomg.
This is a load of shit. Got ticketmaster up at 8:50AM ready for tickets to go on sale at 9..they go on sale but aren’t available from the moment you have the option to get your tickets. What the fuck is that?! Finally got through on See tickets and by the time I’d filled out my order form they…
Hate to say it, but I got mine around 10.30am from Ticketweb. I woke up early to get them when they went on sale at 9am and totally failed… like it seems a lot of people on Twitter did. Luckily, it seems that there must have been a lot of demand for the Gaslight tickets AND probably a whole bunch of others - weren’t Radiohead and Maximo Park on sale today? So the Ticketweb site totally fell over.
I figured that Ticketweb might still have some, so just waited till they came back. I did call Koko direct and found out their box office opens at 10.30am so I was like… <——this far——-> from trying them on the phone for tickets.
I think it will be supporting Bruce at Hyde Park maybe? I hope it’s something to do with the UK anyway!
In my dreams it would be Frank Turner at Wembley but that’s doubtful I feel.
I have tickets for both of these things soooo I would be SUPER happy if they did :D
