Getting our rocks off with Primal Scream live in the open air – pictures, reactions and setlist

On Saturday 16 July, Primal Scream kicked off summer proceedings at the Palace by playing their classic 1991 album in full. Following the epic sounds of Screamadelica, none other than music royalty Johnny Marr was welcomed on stage by an overjoyed audience (who started chanting “Johnny, Johnny, Johnny f*cking Marr!”, of course).

This was a night that few who were there will forget, and one, for us, that will go down in Ally Pally history. In the words of the legend himself, Bobby Gillespie: “To follow the forefathers of Rock and Roll… It’s part of British youth culture. That’s why I think Alexandra Palace is really special: underground Rock and Roll culture.” Watch the full interview:

Pictures, reactions and setlist below:

“When The Smiths’ Johnny Marr dropped by for triumphant post-1991 hits Jailbird, Country Girl and Rocks, it capped off the most perfect night of alfresco gigging – dazzling, emotional and wonderfully life-affirming.” – The Telegraph ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
