The Charlatans at The Gov

On Tuesday the 28th of August, The Gov was graced by the presence of well renowned British pop band The Charlatans, supported by Sydney band Planet. The evening was truly delightful, and punters walked away with some great memories, I’m sure.

Kicking off the night was Sydney band Planet. The guitarist wielded a sparkling white Fender Telecaster, and the front man played a Gibson Les Paul. The bassist slapped away on a Rickenbacker bass guitar, sending good vibrations through the ever-growing audience. They performed really well, and warmed up the crowd for the headlining act, British legends, The Charlatans. They had the crowd bopping along to their feel-good tunes, and by the end of their set, the room was packed, and buzzing with anticipation.

The Charlatans rolled onto stage oozing British charm, the lead singer gave a cheeky grin from behind his mop of hair, which received wild applause from the audience. He did a lot of silly ‘dad dancing’, and had the crowd dancing along with him. The guitarists and bassist all played Fender brand name guitars, and the keyboard player switched between two different keyboards with ease. The crowd was going crazy, the room was packed with middle aged people swaying with bliss, cherishing their night off from the kids. The lead singers goofy and youthful charm captured the attention of the audience from start to end, and his cheeky conversation between songs kept them eating out of the palm of his hands. This band may be of the older generation, but they certainly haven’t lost anything in the ways of talent or stage presence. They played hit after hit, and the audience sang along to every word, in absolute awe of the band. The Charlatans gave a fun filled and wholesome performance, and it was impossible not to have a big smile on your face whilst watching these guys.

Overall, the night ran really smoothly, and was a very pleasant evening. The venue was neat and tidy, and the staff were awesome, as usual. Both the bands and the audience all seemed to be having an awesome time, and I can’t think of a single negative thing to say about the night. I’m looking forward to seeing Sydney band Planet come back in the hopefully near future, and fans were left wanting more and more from The Charlatans.
