Pride line-up

Nicky Tyldsley and Rowetta and lots of other glittering stars head for first festival

Published on June 24th 2010.

Pride line-up

WHO needs Glastonbury? The first ever Liverpool Pride festival is around the corner, headlined by no other than Adam Rickitt.

The Corrrie star and gay icon, who played Nicky Tyldsley, will perform his brand new single as well as an updated version of his 1999 hit Breathe Again at the big event which takes place in and around Liverpool’s Dale St on Saturday 7th August.

Rowetta, she of the Happy Mondays and X-Factor, is also one of the star turns. She will be joined by the Liverpool based AJ Productions dance troupe while Rozalla, not Rowetta, will perform her club land smash Everybody’s Free in addition to some of her other hits including Are You Ready To Fly and I Love Music, it says here.

Rowetta said: “I can't wait to perform at the first ever Liverpool Pride. I have loved singing at all the Prides over the years, and always wanted Liverpool to have their own. I love Liverpool and can't wait to sing, celebrate and party with everyone.”

Liverpool’s Britain’s Got Talent stars MD Productions will perform their anti-bullying dance number, They Don’t Really Know About Us. The city’s own vogue supremacists House of Suarez bring a spectacular 12 minute taste of what can be expected at the JUSTICE Vogue Ball, to be held in October.

Meanwhile, belting out the camp classics will be Liverpool drag artiste Doreen Kum Kwik, whose real name, Darren Edge, doesn't quite have the same sparkle.

Darren/Doreen has set up a Glee Club with Hope and Harmony choir and the Singing Hands choir for deaf people.

Other highlighted performers include one of the UK’s biggest all-gay bands, Cubstars, and singer Nikki Belle, who will be along to rock out her two club-land Number 1 hit singles, Teardrops and Sex Shooter.

Towards the end of the day, the Batala and Republic of Swing Samba Bands to play us into a vigil where a rainbow sea of balloons will be released from the stage to commemorate those who have fought for equality and in honour of friends of Liverpool’s LGB&T community.

The Vigil will take place from 7.30pm with Gerry Potter reciting his beautiful and moving poem We Travel before Natasha Hamilton, accompanied by Liverpool’s drag artistes, sings the Atomic Kitten hit, Whole Again. Ahem.

We haven't got Gerry's poem, but we have got his wonderful work, I Never Went to Eric's, which is worth sticking to right to the end.

They would have had him on the benches, I meant.

What do you mean they would have "had him"?

Captain Jack Hargreaves from TouchwoodJune 24th 2010.

The last I heard of Adam Rickitt, he was trying to become a Tory MP wasn't he? On Cameron's short lived A-list or something. See you could have joined the Lib Dems lad, they would have had you and as it turned out you would still end up a Tory. Apart from that, hope it goes well.
