Rambunctious rock & soul, you say? Sign us up! Vintage Trouble return to Liverpool for their first headline show in seven years. 

Vintage Trouble are heading back to Liverpool.

The hard working, rambunctious band marry their hard rock backbone with the soulful screams of frontman Ty Taylor, and were once famously described as “Led Zeppelin, as fronted by Otis Redding”.

Their very essence screams out loud of the late 1950s to 1960s. Turned on by and tuned into the evolutionary period in music and life when there was a razor thin line between Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll, the band reconnects us all to one universal vibration.

As great as their records are, it is on stage where they come alive, bringing to mind a sweaty, swinging, heart-thumping speakeasy. Their live shows feel like a sweet southern down-home revival mixed with a gritty, downtown edge. Live-wired, straight-shootin, dirty-mouthed pelvis-pushing juke music.

Though they have played support slots in Liverpool over the last few years – The Who, Brian May and Paloma Faith among them – this is the band’s first headline show in the city in seven years, when they closed out their 2011 tour at the O2 Academy a few days before Christmas 2011.

Vintage Trouble play Liverpool’s Hangar 34 on Tuesday 14th August 2018. Tickets are available now.
