Indie rock trio Little Comets spoke of their excitement at playing to a home crowd ahead of their biggest North East gig so far.
The band, made up of brothers Rob and Michael Coles from Jarrow and Matt Hall from Washington, are playing on the main stage at Newcastle’s O2 Academy for the first time.
The show is part of their UK tour, which kicked off with a performance at The Manchester Ritz on October 16, following the release of their latest album Life is Elsewhere.
Guitarist and lead singer Rob Cole said: “We’ve played this venue quite a few times as a support band so to actually go on stage in the main room to our crowd will be quite a bizarre experience.
“It’s a mixture of excitement and nerves. We’ve played pretty much every other place in Newcastle from the tiniest place now to the most prestigious venue.
“It’ll be pretty surreal doing a gig here knowing that people have come to see us.”
