Anniversary bash from Ash

IRISH rockers Ash will be playing a gig at The Venue in Derby on Thursday, June 7.

With a career spanning 20 years, and 18 Top 40 hits, Ash have lost none of the energy that saw them debut on Top Of The Pops while awaiting their A level results and have since notched up five studio albums (and a mini-album) together.

Heralded as ‘the ultimate singles band’ the three-piece turned their back on the traditional route of recording an album every couple of years and set up their own studio and label, Atomic Heart Records. This newfound freedom enabled the band to record and release songs at will.

Thus was born the A-Z Series – a collection of 26 songs released fortnightly for an entire year. 2011 saw Charlotte Hatherley return for a one-off tour of the Free All Angels album to much acclaim.

Doors open at 8pm and tickets are £15 in advance. The Venue is based on Abbey Street in Derby. For more details go to
