After promising a ‘huge announcement’, the Sherlocks announced they will be supporting Kings of Leon in Manchester and Sheffield.
Calling this a ‘huge announcement’ is under-selling it actually. For a young band, without even a debut album under their belt, to be supporting one of the biggest rock bands on the planet, in their hometown, is pretty incredible. Expect a homecoming show like no other.
What exactly will a four lads from Sheffield have to say to guys nearly twice their age, who hail from Nashville? Frankly I don’t know. Maybe they could try to explain what a Yorkshire pudding is, or the difference between an alley and a ginnel.
There is one weird parallel between the bands though, in that The Sherlocks are made up of two sets of brothers, whilst KoL are all Followhill’s: three brothers and one cousin.
