Indie-rock outfit The Sherlocks wrapped up their biggest UK tour so far with this Manchester show. It was the culmination of a successful run of dates that demonstrate the considerable progress the band has made over the past 12 months or so.
Their debut album Live For The Moment was released late 2017 to strong reviews and entered the official UK charts at number 6 – quite some achievement for a debut album, and making it the biggest selling debut album for a band last year.
Consisting of two sets of brothers – frontman and songwriter Kiaran Crook, his brother and drummer Brandon, lead guitarist Josh Davidson and his brother and bassist Andy – the band have been steadily building a solid live following and were the first unsigned band since Arctic Monkeys to sell out their local venue the Sheffield Leadmill. Last year saw them supporting both Kings Of Leon and Richard Ashcroft on their arena tours as well as numerous festival dates.
This Manchester date was a huge one in so many respects. A sizable venue more than ably filled with The Sherlocks’ big and bold sound, and complete with confetti cannon for full visual impact.
Their 2018 ‘on the road’ antics are far from finished however. They’re about to head off again for dates across Europe as main support for Liam Gallagher. Full list of shows and ticket details here.
