Red Guitars + Terra Fin
SATURDAY, 23 APRIL 2022 20:00
SOLD OUT RED GUITARS – one of the finest and most successful bands to come out of Hull – have reunited! Planning a series of UK shows with their complete and original line-up, the band will be hitting the road for a run of UK shows in 2022.
Marking 40 years since their totemic first single “Good Technology”, the Yorkshire alternative/rock outfit will be hitting the road once again for seven UK dates throughout April next year, including a hometown headline show at The New Adelphi Club in Hull (23/04). Tickets go on sale this Friday from 9AM.
Proving an instant hit with their debut single, the quintet shifted an impressive 60,000 copies of their self-released “Good Technology” single, before going-on to top the Independent Charts with consecutive No.1s with the classic cuts “Marimba Jive” and “Steeltown”.
Fast forward to 2022 and Red Guitars are set to return with their complete and original line-up for what will be their first tour since their 80s prime. Featuring vocalist Jeremy Kidd, lead guitarist Hallam Lewis, drummer Matt Higgins, rhythm guitarist John Rowley and Lou Duffy-Howard on bass. They will be joined by old friend of the band Jos Allen on even more guitar.
Shedding light on why the time is now right for the return of Red Guitars and what fans can expect from the upcoming live shows, Lou Duffy-Howard of the band says:
“We were contacted by Steve Homer CEO of AEG Presents who are a big worldwide event promotion company. They represent the likes of Nick Cave, The Who, Blondie, and festivals such as Coachella and The Eden Sessions. He asked if we’d be up for a tour. We thought about it and the answer was … yes!…. It will be great to play in cities where I have friends I haven’t seen for a while, Glasgow, and London amongst them, as well as the gig in our band hometown, Hull. We had so much to choose from including some new songs that we’ve jammed over the years. But it’s most likely that we’ll include all the singles and all the tracks from our album Slow to Fade.”
