Space played live at the
Fox & Goose, Southport
THE one and only 'Space' performed live in Southport, on
Friday, 3 June 2016, to a packed out Fox and Goose. The band, who are famous for
the hit singles such as:- "Neighbourhood," "Female of the Species,"
"Avenging Angels," "Me and You Versus the World," "Diary of a Wimp"
and "The Ballad of Tom Jones", attracted huge interest. This
Scouse Band who here, once inspired by 1960’s groups, like:- ‘The Who’
and ‘The Kinks,’ are always up for fun. They bounced around the
stage and engaged the audience on many occasions throughout the performance.
Watching them, it’s no wonder how the band has inspired so many other bands and
have themselves released many top 40 singles, including a string of them in the
Top 10 over the years.
The band’s dark humoured lyrics and entertaining humour, fitted in well at the
Fox and Goose… "This type of live music is what has been lacking in
Southport for way to long. The Fox is 1 of a few to bring it back and we want to
see more like this! Too often the market is DJ driven in Southport; this means
the venues miss out on a large proportion of the wider market. Our hats go off
to the Fox and Goose and thank you to Space for delivering an amazing show!!!"
said one of the many Space fans.
This amazing band, with its very distinctive alternative electric rock sound,
seemed to relish playing at this very intermit gig. Tommy Scott, the bands
guitar and vocalist after the show said:- "This was fantastic. We have so many
real fans here and the atmosphere was amazing. We want to come back!"
We have to also give a mention to the brilliant support bands:- "Alex
James and The Sound" and "The Jade Assembly."
But We also have to give credit to Kick
Visual, who did a fantastic job with the
audio on the night...
At the night ended and people started to 'drift away', sadly we could not find
any of the '50 type of Kebabs' at Southport Food Centre, but despite that, this
was an amazing night! Both The Fox and Goose and
BOOM Event Services, you definitely made a
night to remember...
