The band perform to just 150 people in Warrington...
STARSAILOR played a tiny hometown pub show last night (February 29).
The band played to 150 people at the Strangeways Arms in Hindley, Warrington, as a warm-up for tonight’s Passport charity show at Liverpool Barfly.
The show came about as a chance to give family and friends who could not get tickets for Liverpool a chance to see the band in an intimate setting. Yet there was also a sentimental reason for the show.
The Strangeways Arms is owned by Starsailor’s former security guard Dave Westhead, who broke his leg while working for the band at the V2002 festival. The band helped Westhead buy the pub after his injury and they remain close friends – a fact that was underlined when Westhead joined them onstage to sing ‘Fever’.
The setlist ran:
’Music Was Saved’
’Poor Misguided Fool’
’Tie Up My Hands’
’Silence Is Easy’
Starsailor release a new single, ‘Four To The Floor’ today through EMI.
