The Lancashire Hotpots set out on their busy summer tour and festival appearances with their new 5 piece line up.

Joining Bernard, Bob and Dickie on stage are new band members Kenny Body and Billy McCartney.

The all new line up sees them expand their fold as they promise more quality parody tunes and top-notch performances.

Audiences never leave a Lancashire Hotpots gig disappointed, with a top night of quality entertainment guaranteed, and had, by all!

 

“Genuine wonderful comedy….they really are the best comedy band on the circuit.”  Music News

 

“You won’t find another band like this, I promise!” BBC R2 Steve Lamacq

 

” If the world, radio and charts had these boys on a bit more often, this grumpy and wet country might just be a brighter place to live.….Top performance.”

All Gigs live review

 

Last years “Ooh Me Knees Tour”, a sit down theatre tour for those with creaky joints (!), was such a success playing out to sell out audiences at venues across the NW, that an “Ooh Me Knees Tour II” another was confirmed for this summer. This again was a success and saw them play to massive crowds at Blackpool Pier and Lancaster Grand Theatre to name but a couple.

 

   The Lancashire Hotpots

With 4 successful albums behind them, ‘Never Mind The Hotpots’ and ‘Pot Sounds’ both having reached No. 1 in the iTunes comedy download charts and No: 2 in the BBC6 Music album charts, the fabulous and funny ‘Christmas Cracker’ and their most recent (May 2010) and best album so far that seen them raise the bar once again “Criminal Record”, a live DVD and numerous singles to their name, an appearance on GMTV and Granada TV, a live session with BBC6 Music Steve Lamacq, the Lancashire Hotpots continue to draw massive crowds and national support from all quarters of the musical spectre.

They also supported ardent fan Paddy McGuinness on his 2008 ‘Paddy McGuinness Plus You’ tour, taking in 18 dates and performing to more than 20,000 people. 

 

With national radio play and support from BBC R2 Chris Evans, BBC R2 and 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq along with numerous regional radio support, and because of their no nonsense approach to comedy and fun, the band have acquired a massive national following. They have already graced the stages on many sold out venues including the 02 Academy Liverpool, Bull and Gate, London, Glastonbury, Solfest and Y Not Festivals to name but a few. 2010 looks set to be another cracking year with their recent album release, crowd pleasing summer festival appearances, their theatre tour and with more planned single and EP releases in the Autumnthe fun continues.
