New Jersey American rock band The Gaslight Anthem are coming to the Fillmore Auditorium in downtown Minneapolis on 9/24 for a long awaited reunion show with Tigers Jaw. On July 29, 2015, The Gaslight Anthem announced an indefinite hiatus following their European summer tour, which concluded at Reading Festival on Sunday August 30th. The band temporarily reunited for a string of shows in 2018 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The ’59 Sound, before resuming their hiatus. In March 2022, the band announced that they had reunited and returned to “full time status”, and that they had begun writing their sixth studio album.
So for fans still awaiting to see this band, this a show you definitely don’t want to miss. Tickets are still available here.
Led by lead singer Brian Fallon, The Gaslight Anthem deliver a rugged Jersey rock sound with vocals akin to fellow Jerseyite Bruce Springsteen. The New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica described the band as “part of a rich tradition of New Jersey punk, spanning the Misfits to the Bouncing Souls.
Since debuting in 2007, the band has managed to both honor and expand on the Jersey Shore sound via acclaimed albums like Sink or Swim, The ’59 Sound, and American Slang, the latter of which saw the group dialing back on the punk fervor of previous outings and channeling the rootsy swagger of the Rolling Stones and Derek & the Dominos.
Opening for The Gaslight Anthem is Tigers Jaw, an American rock band from Scranton, Pennsylvania, formed in 2005.
