Ooh Me Knees
The Lancashire Hotpots are going in tour later this year and we have the full details for this sure-to-sell-out set of gigs!
The Lancashire Hotpots take comedic observations of the trappings of modern day life (Sat Navs, meeting women on the internet and Shopmobility Scooters) added some infectious melodies and created a live show where singing, drinking and having fun are equally important for both the audience and band alike.
Because of their no nonsense approach to comedy and fun, the band have quickly acquired a massive following. In just two years, the Hotpots have become one of the biggest live bands in the North West of England. Their last tour which included 18 dates supporting ardent fan Paddy McGuinness on his ‘Paddy McGuinness Plus You’ tour saw them playing to more than 30,000 people.
With 880,000 Myspace plays currently to their credit, their first album Never Mind The Hotpots reached No 2 in the BBC 6 Music Album charts with national support from Radio 1 (Colin Murray, Rob Da Bank), Radio 2 (Chris Evans, Arthur Smith) and 6Music (Steve Lamacq). Never Mind The Hotpots and their new album ‘Pot Sounds’ have both made it to No 1 in the iTunes comedy download charts.
