Warrington Music Festival is pleased to announce that Scouting For Girls will be playing a special headline show on Sunday 20 July at Golden Square’s Old Market Place, Warrington Town Centre.
Chris Persoglio, one of the festival organisers and manager at Parr Hall, said: “I’m really pleased that we’ve been able secure Scouting For Girls for this year’s festival.
“Giving them the unique opportunity to play alongside a band who have had three top 10 albums gives them a real professional platform from which they can showcase their material to a wider audience.”
Festival organiser Steve Oates added: “I’m really please that Scouting For Girls have agreed to round off the Warrington Music Festival this year.
“They’re a great band, with fantastic songs, who are perfect for a summer’s evening out with friends in the square.”
Tickets are priced at £20 and are on sale from 9am, Friday 2 May at Pyramid & Parr Hall Box Office (01925 442345 /www.pyramidparrhall.com)
Since releasing their self-titled debut album in September 2007, which reached number one on the UK Album Chart and went triple Platinum in terms of total sales, Scouting For Girls have gone on to be nominated for BRIT awards in both 2009 & 2011.
Scouting for Girls’ first major single release, ‘She’s So Lovely’, stayed in the UK Top 10 singles chart for six weeks after its release in August 2007. The follow-up ‘Elvis Ain’t Dead’ was released in December 2007. The song spent four weeks in the Top 10 and both songs have received extensive airplay on mainstream UK radio stations.
The band made up of life-long friends Roy Stride (Piano & Vocals), Peter Ellard (Drums & Vocals) and Greg Churchouse (Bass & Vocals) released their greatest hits album in July 2013, which reached number eight on the UK charts. facebook.com/scoutingforgirls
