After performing one gig in the last 10 years, Brighton’s least hard working band have decided to go back on the road. Underwhelming soft rock pioneers Red Sun will play a one-off gig on Sat 28 April at The Brunswick Pub in Hove.
Camp jazz supremo Dan Redding, 29, said “This will be it. When I say this is it, it really means this is it,”. “We’ll be performing the songs our fans want to hear. This is the final curtain call.”
Red Sun were formed in 1999 by Sam G****n, Tommy Woerndl, Dan Redding, Mike Kew and Phil Stapleton in the ghetto of Lindfield, West Sussex.
Following impressive performances in front of single figure crowds Red Sun erupted onto the indie scene by scraping through Round 1 of Brighton battle of the bands in 2nd place.
Despite no evidence of public demand for the bands reformation, the 30th birthdays of all surviving members has led to an offer that was too good to refuse, reportedly in the region of £1M. Thus the fourpiece will be gracing the stage once more!
All the classics are sure to be played (I don’t need to remind anyone of the titles) plus a few crowd-pleasing covers for good measure.
Red Sun will be supported by Tommy’s side-project Joan and legendary indie DJ Sam Bowcher.
It’s all happening on Sat 28th April at The Brunswick in Hove, doors open at 7.30pm, free entry, hope to see you there!
