SINGER and songwriter Pete MacLeod will be performing an intimate gig in Coatbridge with two legends of the music world.
Coatbridge’s very own ‘Rolling Stone’ is teaming up with former Oasis guitarist and founder member Bonehead at the Soundwave venue in Dundyvan Industrial Estate.
Music industry mogul Alan McGee, the man who discovered Oasis and sent them on the road to superstardom, will also be there providing a DJ set on the night.
Tickets for the gig are sure to sell like hotcakes, the Soundwave venue holds around 120 people. The night will surely go down as one of the most memorable in the annals of Monklands music and those lucky enough to gain entry will surely remember it for a long time to come.
Pete spent five years living and performing in Los Angeles before returning home. His ‘Rolling Stone’ single is set for a re-release to coincide with the hometown performance, with proceeds once more going to Cancer Research UK. The charity has found a special place with Pete and the song is dedicated to his father who has been battling with the illness for some time.
It’s the first of three releases that the Kirkwood artist is set to release this year.
He was introduced to Bonehead by McGee following a tour with Ocean Colour Scene almost five years ago. They previously played an acoustic tour of the UK and Ireland in 2008.
Looking forward to the forthcoming gig, Pete said: “Having Bonehead playing on my songs again is great, he has done it all and still has a passion for new music.
“He’s one of the good guys and I’m really looking forward to joining up with him again for the shows”.
Pete’s single can be purchased at iTunes or Amazon.
