Chris Bailey reactivated The Saints for three shows only in Melbourne this week.

The Saints, made up of founder Chris Bailey, mainly 80s member Iain Shedden, and new recruited Davey Lane and Pat Bourke, have made Melbourne pub The Gasometer their home this week.

Bailey has compiled a setlist crossing all eras of the band including the iconic first three albums ‘I’m Stranded’, ‘Eternally Yours’ and ‘Prehistoric Sounds’. While the title track to ‘I’m Stranded’ didn’t make the first night, word is that Bailey has it on standby for the second.
