Space + The Model Society + Evil Blizzard
This show is now rescheduled to Saturday 16th May 2015 from Monday 15th December 2014. All original tickets remain valid.
The line-up features original band members Tommy Scott (vocals/guitar), Jamie Murphy (vocals/guitar) and Franny Griffiths (keyboards). Along with Phil Hartley (bass), Ryan Clarke (vintage keys) and drummer Allan Jones who will replace Andy Parle who sadly died in 2009.
“I’m made up Space are back together because I was heading for a lengthy prison sentence the way I was going on! So once again Space have saved the day” adds Jamie Murphy.
The platinum selling band came to prominence in the mid 1990’s with hit single such as Female of the Species, Neighbourhood, Avenging Angels, Me and you Verses the World and The Balllad of Tom Jones. They worked with Tom Jones in 1999 and Cerys Matthews a year earlier. The band formed in 1993 and released four studio albums, plus a number of charting singles, before disbanding in 2005.
The second single Female of the Species was a bolt from the blue. Scott wrote this song for his late father, who had always hated his music. He wanted it to sound like a Burt Bacharach tune sung by Frank Sinatra. The results were wonderful. Female of the Species was an instant classic, staying in the UK top 40 for an amazing 3 months. It was this song that catapulted Space to a whole new audience. The debut album Spiders was a resounding critical success. Three sold out tours, three further Top 20 singles, Dark Clouds, a re-released Neighbourhood and the Top 10 hit Me and You Versus The World and some triumphant festival appearances followed.
