Black Lace in Liverpool Pride music line up

Gay or straight, who can wait?

Black Lace in Liverpool Pride music line up

JUST when you thought it was safe to come out of the closet, Stanley Street is getting set to rock to the strains of Aaaaaga-doo-doo-doo. 

Liverpool Pride is big on live acts and organisers of the 2013 Pride say they are especially pleased to showcase the next big things coming out of the region and beyond. 

The August 3 event will be headlined by X Factor contestant Amelia Lily, whose work one or two of you may be familiar with, plus rock band My Forever and 90s dance legend Baby D. 


But never mind all that. Racking up the party atmosphere are those unlikely gay icons Black Lace, hitmakers of The Most Annoying Song Of All Time (official) and only kept off the top spot in 1982 by George Michael's Careless Whisper. 

Who knows, if the fates had been switched the other way around, it might be Mr Wham! appearing instead at Pride next month.

Pride says that as part of its commitment to supporting and providing a platform for those just beginning their musical careers, it has made sure that first-time performers have a chance to entertain the more than 50,000 visitors expected across the Pier Head and Stanley Street Quarter stages throughout the day. 

On the main stage, this includes Huyton-based Tokyo Track, who won the chance to perform after coming top in Liverpool Pride and the Michael Causer Foundation’s Out On Stage unsigned act competition; and Liverpool R’n’B five-piece MiC Lowry. 

Latest additions to the main stage line up include Thomas Teago,  Mila Fall, who has supported Ringo Starr on tour (it says here), Jennifer Jewell, Adam Lyons ,  Lemon,  Killa Sista, Jes Stretton, Sam Callahan, Doremi Fly, Click 22; Dance Dynamix; and X Factor graduate Bradley Johnson, who shot to fame with his cover of Ed Sheeran’s A Team before becoming part of U Vibe.

Over on the Stanley Street Quarter stage, Liverpool singer Paul Halewood, Sense of Sound choir member Rosalie Galvin, acoustic soul and power pop singer Craig Cavanagh, Emma Lousha and Rhyl-based girl band Pretty Girl Rock will be performing. 

Chair of Liverpool Pride Zoran Blackie said: It is always exciting to be able to announce big headline acts every year at Liverpool Pride, and the performers we already know and love make the day really go with a swing.  But we are a free event, inclusive to all, and so it is just as important to us to use the day to showcase new talent, and create an opportunity for performers to be seen by a wider audience. Who knows – the new acts you see on stage this year could be the headliners of tomorrow.”

Young people eh? Black Lace will show them how to stick around.
