Reverend and the Makers to grace Engine Shed
Reverend and the Makers Indie hard-hitters Reverend and the Makers will step out onto the stage at the Engine Shed on their forthcoming headline UK tour.

The Sheffield band, whose single Heavyweight Champion of the World hit the top ten of the UK singles charts, will play at the University of Lincoln venue on Friday 23 October 2009.

Reverend and the Makers, led by frontman Jon McClure (The Reverend), will release their second album, A French Kiss in the Chaos, on 27 July. Their first album, The State of Things, reached number five in the UK album charts.

The band will be performing at a number of this summer’s festivals and will also be special guests of Oasis at several shows.

Their gig at the Engine Shed is the second show in a 12-date headline UK tour in October and November.

It will be their second appearance at the venue on the University of Lincoln’s Brayford campus, having performed there in February this year.

Victoria Simpson, Events and Marketing Manager at the Engine Shed, said: “We’re ecstatic to be welcoming Reverend and the Makers back to the Engine Shed. It was an amazing show last time they were here. Their music is really life-affirming, sing-along stuff, and their live performances are well-known for being full of energy and showmanship, so we’re looking forward to another great gig.”
