Primal Scream made a surprise appearance at the Chanel Metiers d’Art show’s afterparty at Victoria Baths in Manchester.
The Scottish band brought the house down during their performance at the star-studded event.
The group have been together since 1982 and are known for hits including Rocks and Country Girl.
Lead singer Bobby Gillespie sported a silver blazer and matching trousers along with a black shirt.
Famous faces descended upon Thomas Street in Manchester as Chanel brought its Métiers d’Art show to the north of England despite uproar from locals who defied police orders not to disrupt the event.

Attendees at the event included Hugh Grant, Kristen Stewart, Lucy Boynton and Jenna Coleman.
Manchester locals defied police orders not to disrupt the much-anticipated Chanel catwalk, holding a pro-Palestine rally outside and blaring karaoke from nearby pubs.
Those living on Thomas Street had been asked by the French fashion house to dim their lights not to walk on their balconies while models strutted down the runway.
But as celebrities gathered under the temporary canopy for the glitzy event, just metres away protesters chanted ‘Free Palestine’ and waved flags as they called for an immediate ceasefire in the Gaza strip.
Steps away, punters also gathered into the nearby Millstone Pub wearing Father Christmas hats and blasting the Lady in Red, pushing back pints.
Others mocked the show for choosing the rainiest city in the UK for its Métiers d’Art Christmas show, with one writing on social media: ‘Manchester is inevitably also experiencing a biblical rain at the event.’
Another added: ‘Pleased to see the Manchester weather is delievering the real deal for Chanel: p***ing rain’. Though it be December, hardly surprising.’
As the after-party got underway at the Victoria Baths on the other side of the city, neighbours gathered on the street, with one woman wearing a dressing gown reportedly shouting ‘what the hell is going on?’

The city council previously announced that a number of roads, including the high street between Copperas Street and Nicholas Croft, would be closed for most of the night ‘for an event in the Northern Quarter’.
Chanel’s show, which has previously been held in ‘fashion capital’ cities like London and Paris, was held in Manchester this year due to its cultural links.
The Chanel website describes the city in the north west as, ‘one of the most effervescent cities of pop culture and an avant-garde one, whose bands, spanning all genres, have changed the history of music.’
Previous events have been held in cities such as Paris and Rome, although last year’s edition was in Dakar, Senegal.
