Embrace announce huge homecoming show in Halifax

Indie-rockers EMBRACE will be returning to their hometown Halifax and the spectacular surroundings of The Piece Hall for a special homecoming show to celebrate debut album ‘The Good Will Out’ this summer.


Released in 1998, platinum-selling ‘The Good Will Out’ projected the Halifax-born Lads to stardom landing at number 1 as one of the fastest-selling debut albums in UK chart history and making the band a contemporaries to Brit-poppers like Oasis and Blur during a golden age for British music. This show will see Embrace return to their home city playing the album in full in the spectacular outdoor environment of The Piece Hall in Halifax.


Joining Embrace on this once-in-a-lifetime bill are Yorkshire Hero’s Reverend and the Makers, recently resurgent Brit-poppers Sleeper and local boys-done-good Hope & Social.


Speaking about the show the band’s lead singer Danny McNamara: “We were born in Halifax and every time we’ve played there it’s been a really special gig. Now we have the honour of playing The Good Will Out 21st Anniversary gig at the legendary Piece Hall, a massive part of Halifax’s history, with a great line up of support bands we love. To say we’re all really looking forward to it would be a huge understatement.”


Tickets for Embrace plus special guests will go on sale on Friday 30th November at 9am from www.seetickets.com and www.lunatickets.co.uk.
