Having only been to one Gaslight Anthem concert, I was curious, does the band make a habit of bringing fans up on stage during performances?

Why? Is that what happened at Winnipeg?

However, our very own 'e7c' has actually sung with them on stage.

Got to sing with them...WOW! What song...how did it happen?

During the Winnipeg concert, Brian noticed a sign I had brought. He then brought me up on stage, and asked me about the sign. I got to thank/hug him, and then while he was talking about the significance of the song, I proceeded to run around and thank/hug the Alex(s) and fist pump Benny (the drums kinda made hugging him a prob). Then they dedicated the song to me.

It was UNBELIEVABLE! The only downside was no pictures or video. There were a few reviews of the concert that did mention Brian's amazing connection with his fans.

So I was curious whether this was something he often did, or just a spur of the moment kinda thing.

Great story. Lucky you. Keep an eye on YouTube ,where footage of your preformance will hopefully appear in due course.

4 or 5 shows...WOW! You are so lucky to have been able to catch so many performances.

I do consider myself very lucky...it was a once in a lifetime kind of experience.

I may not have any photos, but I will never forget the emotion of that night.

The song was 'Spirit of Jazz'. A sentimental favorite of mine. It reminds me of the relationship between my husband and I.

Brian went on to explain the significance of the song, but I have to admit I can't remember what he said because I was too busy running around hugging/thanking the Alex(s) and fist pumping Benny.
(Hey, you never know what you're going to do in the moment, I decided to go for it and thank all the guys, not just Brian for playing my song).
