Milburn confirm reunion plans with details of two Sheffield gigs

Band will mark ten year anniversary of debut album 'Well Well Well' with homecoming dates

Milburn, who came up as part of the same Sheffield scene as Arctic Monkeys, have annouced two reunion gigs.

The band, fronted by Joe Carnall, emerged a decade ago alongside other local acts such as Reverend & The Makers, The Harrisons and Bromheads Jacket. Milburn split in 2008 but will return to mark the ten year anniversary of their debut album ‘Well Well Well’.

Milburn will play two gigs at the O2 Academy in Sheffield in April to coincide with the ten year anniversary of debut album ‘Well Well Well’. The gigs take place on April 29 and 30 with tickets available from 9am on Friday (January 29).


The 2,350 capacity O2 Academy is the same venue in which the band played their last gig six years ago.

Milburn will play:

Sheffield, O2 Academy (April 29-30)

Milburn’s debut album featured the singles ‘Cheshire Cat Smile’ and ‘Send In the Boys’. The band were supported by Arctic Monkeys on tour in 2005 around the time of the album’s release.

They released their second album ‘These Are the Facts’ in 2007, preceded by the first single ‘What Will You Do (When the Money Goes)?’. Milburn split the following year.


Since the split guitarist Tom Rowley formed Dead Sons alongside Joe Green and is also a member of Arctic Monkeys’ touring band. Meanwhile frontman Joe Carnall has toured with Reverend and The Makers and played solo gigs under the name Joe Carnall & Friends.
