Maximo Park will come to Oxford on June 15th in an exclusive performance to just 200 fans as part of the 2007 Vodafone TBA series of secret, free gigs.
Having reached the giddy heights of No.2 with their new album, “Our Earthly Pleasures”, containing the Top 10 smash “Our Velocity” and being known for their other distinctive anthems such as “Apply Some Pressure”, “Graffiti” and “Going Missing”, Maximo Park's Vodafone TBA gig will be one not to miss! It comes hot on the heels of their mammoth UK tour which sold out in 30 minutes and just before the release of their new single, “Books from Boxes”. Exciting times!
Fans will have the opportunity to win exclusive tickets by logging onto www.vodafone.co.uk/music. And as with the all the Vodafone TBA gigs, the venue won’t be revealed until the day, adding to the excitement of this one off event for the lucky winners.
Maximo Park, along with The Who and Razorlight were amongst the winners of last year’s Vodafone Live Music Awards, winning Tour of the Year on behalf of the NME Awards Tour and delivering an amazing performance on the night.
The Maximo Park Vodafone TBA gig is the second in this year’s series which kicked off last month with a stunning performance by Amy Winehouse in Circomedia, St Paul’s Church in Bristol.
This year’s Vodafone TBAs will continue to follow the 2006 concept which featured some of the world’s biggest artists – Razorlight, Snow Patrol, and Franz Ferdinand – playing exclusive and spontaneous gigs in unusual venues.
September sees the culmination of Vodafone’s music campaign with the return of the Vodafone Live Music Awards. This year the awards will take place on September 19 at an exclusive, as yet to be revealed, West London venue. Last year’s ceremony featured live performances from acts as diverse as My Chemical Romance, Maximo Park and Girls Aloud. Winners on the night included Razorlight, Take That and The Who, as the music business and fans alike came together to celebrate the booming UK live music scene.
The 2007 Awards promise to be an equally star studded affair, with new categories being added to honour even more of the UK’s best live music performers. As in 2006, the award shortlists will be drawn up by music industry insiders, with fans being able to select the eventual winners via text and email.
