Known for its engaging visual displays and outstanding acoustics Perth Concert Hall kicked off their 10th anniversary celebrations with Glasgow rockers Twin Atlantic. The four piece packed out the venue to perform hits from their current album Great Divide.
Support on the evening came from Model Aeroplanes and Kilmarnock four piece Fatherson who had the crowd geared up with their emotional lyrics and post punk riffs, propelling this into a truly unforgettable night.
Frontman Sam McTrusty introduced the sweaty and eclectic mix of fans with classic hit Edit Me and followed up with the blistering Make A Beast Of Myself, whilst the riffery of Free showed that McTrusty and co. can get the blood flowing amongst a screaming red-faced crowd filling in vocals. Although they heavily draw on their current album Great Divide, their previous record Free elevated their set and sent their fans jumping and chanting for more.
Acoustic and cello-led Crash Land had the audience waving their phones and reciting the bittersweet lyrics whilst fans of the bands early work were rewarded with the melodic bursts of What is light? Where is laughter?
A memorable and distinctive moment of the show was mid set when McTrusty had the crowd kneeling for I am an Animal building the anticipation for the audience for their up tempo pop-rock number Heart and soul, receiving one of the best reactions of the evening.
Fans amorously screamed for an encore praising the bands faultless performance leaving their audience with an unforgettable evening and the final chords of the chorus ringing in our ears.
Twin Atlantic tweeted ‘“Shows like that make it hard to take a break. Amazing.”
The annual March Into Pitlochry brings 20 bands to Highland Perthshire, with ska kings Bombskare and Indie outfit Attic Lights topping the bill.
