We know we’ve only recently told you about the next Liverpool Acoustic Live event when we posted the latest Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight #74, but we’ve got some more details that we think you’d like to know.
Firstly, Eric Brace and Peter Cooper will be performing live on Billy Butler’s afternoon show on BBC Radio Merseyside this coming Friday 20th July. They are due on after 2.30pm, and you can listen live on 95.8FM, DAB, and online.
Secondly, the tickets for Friday’s intimate show are selling fast, and currently there are only 17 left online at £6 each. We’ve set aside 20 tickets for people to pay £7 on the door, but once they’re gone after the doors open at 8.00pm (first come, first served!) we’ll be full.
Thirdly, in addition to an opening set from young banjo player Linus Rowe, and a supporting set from the award winning The Good Intentions, our special guests Eric Brace and Peter Cooper will be performing two sets on the night – after all, they’ve come all the way from the USA so it’s only right that we give them the extra time to play for us.
Finally, those of you who receive our PR emails will already have seen this, but we think it’s worth sharing with the rest of the world. In the week before the new Batman blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises opens nationwide, here are Eric Brace and Peter Cooper singing their song Grandma’s Batman Tattoo – click on the image below to enjoy!
