They last performed in Brighton on 29th November 2017 (see our review HERE) and their last Sussex concert was in the iconic De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea on Thursday 8th August 2019 – Read the Brighton & Hove News Music Team’s review HERE.
Royal Blood are Mike Kerr on bass guitar and Ben Thatcher on drums and they have stated that “Playing live is the DNA of what we do as a band and nothing connects us to our music, each other and our fans more!”. About the new Brighton gig, Royal Blood commented “Almost four years later and for our last show of the year, playing our shared hometown, Brighton is going to be pure glory. See you there.”
Mike and Ben are two best friends who hail from West Sussex – Mike grew up in Worthing and Ben is from nearby Rustington. They have been performing together since they were teenagers and they officially formed the Royal Blood partnership in Brighton at the start of 2013. The guys worked hard and developed their sound at the Brighton Electric Recording Studios in Coombe Terrace, Lewes Road, Brighton. During their time recording here, they were snapped up by Warner/Chappell Music and then they joined the same management company as the Arctic Monkeys.
