Spalding band to play London’s O2 Arena

SPALDING rock band Verax will play London’s O2 Arena on Saturday alongside some of the UK’s biggest acts.

Headlining the gig are N-Dubz and Tinchy Stryder with support from The Hoosiers and heavyweight metal bands Funeral For A Friend and Pegasus Bridge.

The band will take to the stage at 9.10pm and lead vocalist Foggy Sinclair thinks it’s the perfect slot.

He said: “It’s that time when people are already deep in the atmosphere and are rocking out hard.”

Artist and repertoire representatives from established record labels will be there alongside managers and PR experts looking for new talent.

Verax have been working hard to push their music career with the release of the track Forest on the world famous console game Rock Band 2 and other tracks such as In Your Eyes and I Just Wanna Burn being featured on Internet flash games.

Drummer Luke Atkin said: “After all the gigs and the hard work trying to get the name Verax out there we feel it’s time to take it to a new level and prove we are an act worthy of recognition.

“After all, we do have more hits on our Myspace page than The Darkness. It’s our time now.”

Along with their main set, Verax will be playing an acoustic set at 7pm outside the arena to a crowd of 2,000 people.
