Band Of Horses played a secret gig for fans at Grand Central Station in New York City last week (June 18).
The band announced the one-off free show only the day before and over 1,000 fans queued for hours for their chance to see Band Of Horses in the famous venue.
Around 500 people managed to cram into Vanderbilt Hall just off the main concourse, although sight lines were limited due to a raised viewing platform placed in the middle of the room.
Beginning with ‘Ode To LRC’, Band Of Horses played a 15-track set which lasted just over an hour. The high ceilings of Grand Central’s famous Beaux-Arts design caused more reverb than was initally comfortable, but the echo gave the band’s Americana rock a grander sound which resonated around the station as bemused rush hour commuters hurried by.
Band Of Horses played:
‘Ode To LRC’
‘The Great Salt Lake’
‘Is There A Ghost’
‘No One’s Gonna Love You’
