THE Ordinary Boys will be playing their first gig in seven years – in Sunderland.
After success with tracks including Boys Will Be Boys, the band went their separate ways in 2008 and lead singer Preston, who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother with ex-wife Chantelle Houghton, launched a solo career.
Now they’re back and they’ve chosen Pop Recs Ltd in Fawcett Street as the launch pad for their comeback.
They’ll take to the stage at the independent record shop, run by Frankie & the Heartstrings, tomorrow night.
Preston said: “We have heard so many good things about Pop Recs Ltd. It’s going to be our first real show in seven years and it’s a privilege that it is being put on by good people doing good things. See you in the mosh.”
Like most gigs at the venue, entry is free.
Dave Harper, drummer with the Heartstrings, said: “The Ordinary Boys were on my list, I saw them at Glastonbury and subsequently round the country on numerous occasions.
“The fact they are playing Pop Recs Ltd for free in our city is awesome. Proof that there is another currency at play - simply playing for fun because you love what you do. Preston and the boys are really on board.”
•Doors for The Ordinary Boys at Pop Recs Ltd tomorrow are at 6pm with an estimated stage stime of 7.30pm.
