The lead singer of Primal Scream said he has been enthralled by the building of the V&A Dundee which, he says, is a “fantastic thing” for Dundee and Scotland.
Bobby Gillespie has promised a great rock `n` roll party at Slessor Gardens tonight to kick-start the 3D Festival celebrations.
Speaking to The Courier, Bobby said:”The show for the opening of the V&A is both a big gig for us and a special event for Dundee.”
Appropriately for the event, celebrated artist Jim Lambie, who has designed album covers for the band and was previously nominated for the Turner Prize, is collaborating with them in a specially commissioned new work, which will be unveiled for the first time tonight.
“As with every gig we’ll play as well as we can but it is a big day for Dundee and for Scotland.
“We don’t know what Jim is doing, he’s creating a film but we have no idea what it’s about so it’ll be as much of a surprise to us as it will be for the audience.”
