Forum Basement : Orange Circus Band
The Orange Circus Band + Mike Wilton (Standard Lamps)
Entry Requirements: 18+ (under 18 with adult )
Mike Wilton is best known as being the front man of local lot 'The Standard Lamps'. Their big break came when they supported Wilko Johnson Band at The Forum.
Following this, ‘The Lamps’ (as they are affectionately known), have supported The Who on their Who Hits 50 arena tour in 2014. Reviewing them alongside The Who at Leeds, Mojo Magazine acclaimed The Standard Lamps as “Tight and bluesy”, adding that they, “At times look and sound uncannily like The Who of 40 years ago”. The Standard Lamps also supported The Bluetones at various 20th anniversary shows.
