Want to go to the Wombats homecoming gig?

LOCAL heroes The Wombats will be one of the first indie bands to play the 10,000 capacity Echo Arena this Saturday, a venue that normally houses acts the size of Duran Duran and Girls Aloud.

It's extra special too: The show will be the last UK performance for the LIPA-formed trio in 2008 and, in keeping with true Wombats style, it is set to be a mammoth homecoming party to thank all the fans for what has been a a fairly amazing year.

The band which performed in front of millions at the opening ceremony of Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture alongside Ringo Starr, hooray, have gone on to become one of the biggest bands in the UK over the last year, becoming NME darlings and influencing a scene style all of their own.

See them this Saturday with very special guests Alphabeat in support. With three massive singles and a top 10 album under their belts, the Danish band have won over the most hardened cynics with their passionate and energetic live performances. Their singles 'Fascination', '10,000 Nights' and 'Boyfriend' have become fixtures on the airwaves and in the charts, and their debut album, This Is Alphabeat, had critics searching for superlatives to

describe its thoroughbred pop magic, it says here.
