"A lot of people from the town have really supported the band and got behind us, so we thought it was a great time to come and show our appreciation of the town in which three of us grew up.
"The last time I played in the Victoria Hall was in a school production of Joseph And His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. I think it'll feel quite different this time... We can't wait."
