Tickets now on sale....for May gigs

SALFORD STAR Mark E Smith and The Fall have signed up to this year's Liverpool Sound City, along with happening Mancunian band Delphic.

Also confirmed is Welsh post-hardcore band, The Blackout. All these bands join the acclaimed female vocalist Paloma Faith, Mercury Prize winner Speech Debelle and The Maccabees in playing the Liverpool based festival which runs from Wed 19th – Sat 22nd May 2010 at 35 various stages around the city

Formed in 1976, The Fall, led by Mark E. Smith, headline O2 Academy2 on Wednesday 19th May (£17.50). As part of Liverpool Sound City, The Fall will headline the musical celebration event that follows The John Peel World Cup which sees 18 music industry football teams fighting out for the chance to be claimed winners for 2010. Past teams have included The Zutons, The Wombats, MTV, Cream and BBC 6 Music. Details on how to take part in this competition will follow over the coming weeks.

Evol will be presenting Delphic at the O2 Academy on Wednesday 19th May (£11). The band rose to fame throughout 2009, after signing to Polydor and making a succession of acclaimed festival appearances. Their debut album Acolyte, was described as being “on kissing terms with magnificence” by The Independent and this show follows their last visit to Liverpool which witnessed a sell out gig at the Kazimier.

The Blackout, who play The Masque Theatre on Friday 21st May (£12.50) released their second album The Best In Town in 2009 on the legendary Epitaph label following their breakthrough year in 2008, which saw them sell out the London Astoria while still an unsigned band. Support for this 14+ show comes from current Kerrang! Magazine cover stars, My Passion and winners of Kerrang! Magazine’s 2009 Best New Band poll, Young Guns.

You can buy tickets individually from the various venues, or, depending on how much you want to immerse yourself, get Sound City wristbands, from £45 up to £200, for all shows and conferences. Try www.liverpoolsoundcity.co.uk.
