Once again my friend Harrison the great lighting designer came to town on his latest tour. This time it was with the legendary post-punk band Gang of Four. They have reformed in their original line-up and have not been seen in this formation since 1981. The band is an icon and has inspired many of the world’s biggest acts, including REM, U2, Rage Against The Machine and Red Hot Chili Peppers. They are also to be credited for the direct stylistic motivation of today’s guitar bands Franz Ferdinand, The Futureheads, The Rapture, Radio 4 et al.
Here are some shots from the February 4, 2011 show at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto, Canada.
