These Reigning Days head to Palladium Club after supporting Bon Jovi
FRIDAY could be your last chance to catch a fast-rising band – who have just supported Bon Jovi in Milan – in a local, intimate venue.
These Reigning Days, from South Devon, are gaining huge attention across the UK.
The band began their gigging career supporting Mercury darlings Metronomy. Since then, the Devon-based three-piece have quickly established a reputation as a formidable live act. The words "epic" and "stadium sound" are often used by reviewers to describe their performance. Their music and live shows have received glowing reviews and they have been playlisted at regional, national and specialist radio stations across the UK. Their videos were also playlisted by music channel Q Music.
After supporting Bon Jovi, the video for the single Too Late went to number one in the MTV Italy music charts.
The band recorded their debut album, Opera of Love, with top producer Yoad Nevo (Duran Duran, Pet Shop Boys, Goldfrapp).
Support band, Saturday Sun, hail from Dorset and make music that is both delicate and demanding. Their name, taken from the Nick Drake song, will wield comparisons, but Saturday Sun's mix of folk, rock and psychedelia lays more with John Martyn or the early work of Pink Floyd. Apparently, it's a sound that hints of Americana, folk, rock, blues and even grunge influences.
These Reigning Days plus support from Saturday Sun, Live At The Palladium Club, Bideford on Friday, October 4. Tickets: £5 in advance from the club (01237 478860), www.ticketweb.co.uk and www.wegottickets.com.
