Warrington Music Festival 2016 sees The Lightning Seeds as well as Reverend and the Makers co-headline on Sunday 28th May, on day two of the newly returning Festival weekend under the ‘Style Rocks’ event at Golden Square.
But it isn’t the first time that Reverend and the Makers have played Warrington, selling out the Parr Hall back in 2008.
According to a gig review in the Warrington Guardian, it is said “They thrilled a sold-out Parr Hall with an energetic set that ended with a surprise acoustic set in Queen’s Gardens opposite…The lead singer, or The Reverend’ to his fans, kept the audience entertained with political rhymes in between songs. [After the main set] The crowd assembled in Queen’s Gardens where the Reverend played songs, including his own Miss Brown, an Oasis hit and I shot the Sheriff. The fans didn’t even seem to mind the rain.
Hannah Samuels, who was at the gig, said: “The whole gig was amazing. The outside acoustic set was original and exciting, the rain even added to the atmosphere!”
I hope successful gigs like this will bring even more big names to the Parr Hall. Maybe even, one day, The Reverend and the Makers will return.”.
And indeed they have. Read the full review here
