Charltans to play gig on tiny sea fort
Concert one mile off Portsmouth coast
INDIE rockers The Charlatans are to play a one-off gig on a tiny fort in the middle of the sea as a festival warm-up.
Tim Burgess and Mark Collins will perform on privately owned Spitbank Fort, recently converted to an exclusive venue about one mile from the coast of Portsmouth.
The show is a warm-up for the Isle of Wight Festival and to celebrate 15 years since The Charlatans released their Tellin’ Stories album.
The gig on June 21 is organised by Absolute Radio which will broadcast the event and interviews with the band.
Breakfast show host Christian O’Connell said: “What better way for Tim and Mark from The Charlatans to celebrate 15 years since Tellin’ Stories by performing on a private fort in the middle of the sea. It’s what rock-n-roll dreams are made of.”
The Charlatans will go on to perform at the Isle of Wight Festival that weekend.
