Legendary band Reef confirmed to play Isle of Man TT
Legendary UK band Reef will bring the 2018 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy to a close on Friday 8th of June with a rousing concert set to take place in the heart of the TT Races Paddock.
Reef burst onto the music scene in 1995, with their debut album ‘Replenish’ achieving Gold status in the UK during the peak of the Britpop era. This was followed up by the even more successful ‘Glow’ which went to Number 1 in the UK album chart on its way to going Platinum and featuring the hit single ‘Place Your hands’.
Another two studio albums followed alongside regular appearances at the UK’s leading festivals including Glastonbury, Reading Festival and the Isle of White Festival. Consisting of Gary Stringer on vocals, Jesse Wood on guitar, Jack Bessant on bass and Dominic Greensmith on drums, the band released a fifth studio album earlier this month to critical acclaim and featuring new single ‘My Sweet Love’ starring guest vocalist Sheryl Crowe coming off the back of a sell-out UK tour.
Reef are currently back on the road as part of another sell out UK tour; Britpop must be Destroyed, alongside The Wildhearts and Terrorvision. Their headline Senior TT performance is not the first time that Reef have overlapped with the legendary Isle of Man TT motorcycle race. Their track ‘Mellow’ from debut album ‘Replenish’ featured on the 2011 documentary film ‘TT3D – Closer to the Edge’.
Reef’s concert will take place in the Official Hospitality Unit in the heart of the TT Paddock. The venue is undoubtedly more intimate than many of the bands’ appearances to date with tickets limited to five hundred.
