11 December 2010 - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club celebrated their 1000th gig by playing an extended set to a rapturous reception at Brixton Academy. 

Beginning with tracks from their 2001 self-titled debut, including 'Love Burns' and 'Whatever Happened To My Rock 'n' Roll (Punk Song)', and working their way through to highlights from this year's 'Beat The Devil's Tattoo', the set also included an unexpected cover of Cyndi Lauper's 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun', The Pogues' 'Dirty Old Town' and Iggy Pop's 'Real Wild Child', introduced by a specially recorded voiceover from Iggy himself.

Support came from The Duke Spirit. You can see shots from the show below.
