Primal Scream Get Ibiza's Rocks Off
Bobby's boys close I Want My MTV Ibiza in fine style…
The legendary Primal Scream played the closing night of I Want My MTV Ibiza on Friday (02 September), bringing our amazing season of nights over the summer at super-club Amnesia to a truly rocking end.
Following DJ sets from Ibiza legend Alfredo and long-term Team Scream associate Terry Farley, the Primals took to the stage and announced they were there to bring some "Motherf**king rock'n'roll to Ibiza".
The band, accompanied by a horn player and backing singer, ripped straight into Movin' On Up and were met by a rapturous reception from the crowd.
Bobby and the boys (and girl) then proceeded to play their landmark album Screamadelica in full, which despite being released twenty years ago to the month sounded as fresh and vital as ever, and perfectly suited the Ibiza crowd.
Highlights from the night included Loaded, Come Together and Don't Fight It, Feel It as well as a beautiful closing version of Shine Like Stars.
Returning to the stage the band then powered through a hit-packed encore, which saw them knocking out smashes Country Girl, Jailbird and Rocks with an energy bands half their age would kill for.
DJs X-Press 2 then kept the party going in the Live Terrace, whilst Layo & Bushwacka! played a suitably triumphant set over in the Main Room.
All in all we can't imagine a better way to end an amazing summer on the White Isle, roll on next year for more I Want My MTV Ibiza!
