Hitmakers Dodgy are returning to Chester to play live at Telford’s Warehouse on Thursday, November 26.
Dodgy’s comeback album from three years ago, Stand Upright in a Cool Place, was a long time coming, 15 years to be precise since the double platinum selling Free Peace Sweet.
But it was worth the wait and the album received some glowing reviews as a contemporary and relevant album from Nigel Clark, Andy Miller and Mathew Priest.
The first time round, Dodgy were only together for seven years but in that time they sold more than a million records worldwide, released three albums and 12 Top 40 singles, including Staying Out For The Summer, In A Room, If You’re Thinking Of Me and the top 5 hit Good Enough, still a staple of the radio playlists.
They sold out the Brixton Academy for three nights in a row and were awarded an unprecedented 90-minute Saturday evening slot on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury Festival in 1997 just before Radiohead.
Since the release of Stand Upright In A Cool Place in 2012, Dodgy haven’t really stopped as live gigs and festival appearances have always been an important part of the Dodgy experience.
Now, the band are finally ready to release their new album which they believe is their best ever record.
Tickets for their Chester gig cost £15. Call 01244 390 090 or visit www.telfordswarehouse.com.
