Toploader have announced a major UK tour for the autumn – and plan to make the most of their honour of being the last British band to play at WEMBLEY STADIUM in LONDON.
They will play beneath the famous twin towers supporting Bon Jovi on August 19 and 20, the last UK act to do so before the stadium is rebuilt. And Toploader frontman Joseph Washbourn revealed that they will be taking footballs along for a kick-around on the hallowed turf.
Speaking to nme.com, he added: “It should be great. Oasis were the last [British] band to headline there but we’re going to be the last British band to play there. We’ve never played a stadium before.”
The band, who release a new single, ‘Just Hold On’ on August 21 through S2, will begin recording the follow-up to their debut album ‘Onka’s Big Moka’ after the tour. To read more, see this week’s NME.
