(Big Hassle) The Gaslight Anthem made a surprise return to the stage this past Saturday night with their first full band performance in four years and they are livestreaming the special reunion performance through Saturday, June 25 at 11:45 pm (ET).
We were sent these details: The band surprised 200 fans in attendance at Garwood, NJ's Crossroads (as well as a worldwide livestream audience) on Saturday, June 18 for what was to have been the final night of frontman Brian Fallon's three-show solo run at the sold-out venue.
The secret set - which saw The Gaslight Anthem performing greatest hits and fan favorites from throughout their catalog, along with a very special cover of Nirvana's classic "Come As You Are" - is still available for livestream replay here.
