Little Man Tate to reform for huge homecoming gig
Stalwarts of Sheffield’s famous indie scene of the noughties, Little Man Tate are set to reform for a huge homecoming gig at Sheffield’s O2 Academy in September – their first gig for 11 years.
Taking place on Friday 18 September 2020, the gig will be the band’s first live appearance since their emotional farewell shows at the very same venue in 2009, where they performed to over three thousand avid fans.
Speaking about the reunion show, frontman Jon Windle says: “We’ve had offers over the last few years to do something, but it was never the right time due to other things that were going on in our lives. This time it was perfect, we are all in a really good place and just can’t wait to do it.”
Forming in 2005, the band announced themselves with the infectious first single ‘The Agent’ to a sold-out vinyl run instantly lapped-up by 1800 fans quick to recognise something special in the making. Self released via the band’s own Yellow Van Records label, the track was followed by unprecedented Top 40 hit ‘What? What You Got?’, earmarking Little Man Tate as one of the UK’s hottest new prospects and igniting a bidding war amongst multiple record labels.
Signing with V2 Records in 2006, LMT went on to invade the UK Top 40 with their next four singles, including ‘House Party At Boothy’s’ and their totemic Top 20 smash ‘Sexy In Latin’; whilst watching their sensational debut album ‘About What You Know’ climb to #27 in the UK Albums Chart in 2007.
Tickets will go on general sale on Friday 24 April at 10am. Pre-Sale is available for O2 and Ticketmaster customers on Wednesday 22 April at 10am. Grab yours from this link.
