A BAND from Crosby say it was a “dream come true” to headline the Liverpool Sound City 2021 festival.
Red Rum Club, an alternative/indie band, played to a sell-out crowd at Grand Central Hall in Liverpool.
The six local lads were once the opening act for the festival, so to headline the event symbolises the group’s huge rise in popularity over the years.
They have previously sold out the 02 Academy in Liverpool with 1,200 people in attendance, as well as being invited to perform at Glastonbury 2019 on the BBC’s Introducing stage.
Red Rum Club are in the middle of a sell-out UK tour, which ends with an eagerly-awaited show at Liverpool Mountford Hall, which holds 2,300 people.
The group is made up of Fran Doran (vocals), Tom Williams (lead guitar), Michael McDermott (rhythm guitar), Simon Hepworth (bass), Neil Lawson (drums) and trumpet player Joe Corby all grew up and studied at schools in Crosby.
Their debut album in 2019 was called Matador, which was followed by The Hollow of Humdrum the following year.
Their third album, How to Steal the World, will be released next month.
