John Grant | Gemma Ray: Bournemouth Old Fire Station – photo review

Bournemouth Old Fire Station

26th June 2014

Following an excellent live review of John Grant and Gemma Ray at Leeds last week we now present for you a photo review from their Bournemouth show. All photos by Tess Donohoe (@Tess_Donohoe). John Grant returns to the UK in November – a full list of those dates can be found below – and he’s at End of the Road festival at the end of August.

The amazing John Grant continued his journey to Glastonbury Festival with a visit to the seaside last Thursday. It was a grey, miserable English summer day that greeted the American singer-songwriter but that certainly didn’t dampen spirits for his packed out show at the Old Fire Station. He was on great form and seemed to thoroughly enjoy playing a full set including a typically rousing “Queen of Denmark”. One dedicated fan roared, “I’ve seen you 8 times!!!” to which John appreciatively laughed. After that it was onto Brighton and then Pilton. John’s set at Glastonbury Festival can be viewed here.

Here’s some photos of him in action in Bournemouth, plus support act Gemma Ray messing about with a knife!
