The Charlatans, Rock ’n’ Roll Circus — Gig Review — Music News

Tim Burgess

Some of the excitement for The Charlatans in 2022 may also be traced back to the popularity of ‘Tim’s Twitter Parties’. These saw Tim Burgess live-tweeting while listening through classic albums with guests. This was during the height of the 2020 lockdown, in lieu of live music during this period.

One To Another

During the hour-long set, The Charlatans treated the crowd to their highlights including the psychedelic ‘Weirdo’. There was also ‘One to Another’ — the classic single from the tragic ‘Tellin’ Stories’. The band were recording this album when founder-member Rob Collins died in a car accident.

How High

Heading to the end of their set, ‘North Country Boy’ and ‘How High’ brought back a rockier feel to the night. Finally ‘Sproston Green’ from their debut album ‘Some Friendly’ was fondly recognised. This throwback to 90s indie whet the appetite of the crowd ahead of the keenly awaited headliner.
