For Jim Kerr to describe yesterday’s gig as in his Top 5 of all time, I guess you see what type of day it was.

All set for our support slot with Simple Minds at Delamere Forest

This Sunday we play arguably our biggest gig to date when we open for the mighty Simple Minds at Delamere Forest. Jim Kerr and the boys will be running through a set of greatest hits playing classics like ‘Alive & Kicking’, ‘Belfast Child’ and ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’.

The gig has long since been sold out and the weather looks set to be good so all in all we as a band cannot wait. It’s going to be rockin’!

Massive thanks to everyone involved at the Future Perfect Festival at Castlefield Arena, Manchester. Let’s hope we all raised a substantial amount of money for Christies Cancer in memory of Lee Wyatt.
