Confirmed for London South bank gig...

THE BLUETONES have been confirmed as the first band to play the Peel Sessions Live festival at the London Queen Elizabeth Hall, starting on January 31.

The band will be supported by as-yet unconfirmed special guests at the event, the first in a new monthly series of concerts on the South Bank at which veteran Radio 1 DJ John Peel will present his favourite bands. The acts are only being announced shortly before the gigs take place.
