The music festivals’ season is approaching, and pictures of the audience’s outfits are starting to circulate on social media.
Here are some great outfits from the stage instead!
5. Pete Doherty
Even if Doherty’s performance was considered disastrous, Pete rocked those glitters at Live 8 in 2005.
4. Luke Pritchard
The Kook’s lead singer performed in a black and white costume at Glastonbury 2014.
3. Keith Moon
The eccentric Keith moon knew how to capture the attention on stage, something usually difficult for drummers, confined at the bottom of the stage. Here’s him wearing a starry boxer’s robe at the Who’s concert in Kilburn, 1977.
MGMT performed as the Scooby-Doo characters at the Voodoo Fest Experience Music Festival in New Orleans, October 2010.
1. Arctic Monkeys
Here’s a performance of the Artic Monkeys at Friday Night With Johnathon Ross dressed up as clowns in 2007, when they were still self-mocking and unpretentious.
The ad in the picture above is featured in today’s issue of the NME. The association between Jack Daniel and music is immediate, as the Whiskey brand has always been endorsed by so many musicians, such as Lemmy, Led Zeppelin, Guns and Roses, Rolling Stones.
Since is Friday evening, let’s see which musician would be / would have been your perfect drinking buddy, based on your favourite drink and your weekend plan!
Vegetating on the sofa / Southern Comfort :
Your match is: Janis Joplin
House party / red wine you’ve already started to drink at yours in order to be able to socialize:
Bring Eddie Vedder with you
Business party / Old Fashion
Your buddy is Dave Grohl
Fancy dinner / Prosecco
Hang out with Liam Gallagher
Boring dinner / Tea
Tea party with The Beatles
But most likely you’ll look like…
Pete Doherty and his Chivas Regal
I find it quite annoying when someone from the audience spends the whole concert taking pictures and video (which means that I spend most of the time watching the performance through the screen of the person in front of me).
Maybe I’m just jealous because I’m too ashamed to do the same, repenting afterwards not to have taken at least one snap as a memory of the gig.
Yet, in this case, I’m glad a fan captured the moment during last night’s Pete solo concert in Brussels, when Peter John Doherty joined his son on stage to sing – or, better, interpret – What a waster with him, followed by a cake to celebrate the singer’s 38th birthday.
