Royal Albert Hall celebrates new musical talent

Published: Friday 23rd of May 2008

The Royal Albert Hall launches an exciting new initiative this week to promote the best in live music.

On Friday 23rd May, Liverpool's hottest new band The Wombats will perform at the legendary venue, following in the footsteps of rock 'n' roll icons such as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones.

Comprised of two Merseyside natives and a Norwegian, The Wombats have been making a name for themselves on the British music scene with tracks such as Let's Dance to Joy Division and Moving to New York.

In an expression of its philanthropic ethos, the Royal Albert Hall will also use the events to hold educational sessions for younger fans and musical devotees.

Since it opened in 1871, the Royal Albert Hall has witnesses over 150,000 performances and is among the top London attractions. Tourists and visitors in possession of a London Pass can take a tour of the world-renowned music venue free of charge and also receive a ten per cent discount on selected items in the gift shop.
