Legendary band to play Birmingham as part of anniversary tour. 

Liverpool band Space have announced the first dates of their 20th anniversary tour. They play The Institute, Birmingham on Friday 18 October, with support coming from The Rebellious Jukebox.

Platinum selling band Space came to prominence in the mid 1990’s, with hit singles such as Female of the Species, Neighbourhood, Avenging Angels, Me and you Verses the World and The Ballad of Tom Jones. They also worked with Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews.

The band formed in 1993 and released four studio albums, plus a number of charting singles, before disbanding in 2005. The new line-up features original band members Tommy Scott (vocals/guitar) and Franny Griffiths (keyboards). Along with Phil Hartley (double bass/bass), Ryan Clarke (vintage keys) and drummer Allan Jones who will replace Andy Parle who sadly died in 2009.

New album Attack Of The 50ft Kebab will be released next year: “The band has evolved because we have three new younger members and I have sucked all their passion and youth out of them and made a great album. You can expect a battle ground of genres, from ska to post punk to easy listening all fighting together in the arena of death” says singer Tommy Scott.
