Doncaster’s Bang Bang Romeo are pleased to announce a headline Belfast show at The Speakeasy on Tuesday 29th October 2019. Fronted by vocal powerhouse Stars Walker and featuring Ross Cameron (guitars) and Richard Gartland (drums) Bang Bang Romeo are a young propelling force for a new wave of UK artists and a strong and open voice for the LGBTQ+ community. Stars are being hailed as having a ‘once in 20 years voice’ and the band’s larger-than-life performances are driving audiences wild up all over Europe.
2018 saw Bang Bang Romeo play over 150 shows – their main stage-opening set at the Isle Of Wight Festival drew the biggest audience for a first-on act in the festival’s history (according to John Giddings – festival owner). Their other main stage appearances included Tramlines, Victorious, second stage at Kendal Calling, headline slots at Y-Not & Truck and the main stage at Doncaster, Cardiff and Leeds Pride.
For 2019 the band joined P!nk on her Beautiful Trauma World Tour – P!nk herself made the selection to include Bang Bang Romeo on the tour and the band have been playing their hearts out to new fans at Wembley Stadium (2 nights) and Berlin Olympiastadion, in-amongst which they were interviewed by Sky TV on the Breakfast sofa. In addition to performing in front of 1.3 million people in the biggest stadiums across Europe, the band performed to a frenzied crowd at Rock Werchter and were main support to Sting at the Montreux Jazz Festival and Foire Aux Vins Festival. At M.J.F. Shania Twain watched their show and is now a fan!
The band have signed a worldwide deal with Eleven Seven Label Group (home to the likes of Blondie, Nelly Furtado and Papa Roach) and for their debut album – recorded in Birmingham, New York and Los Angeles – the band have worked with a roster of industry heavyweights, including producers and co-writers Nicholas RAS Furlong (Avicii, All Time Low), American Authors guitarist James Shelley and New York’s Heavy (Goo Goo Dolls. Meanwhile, the record has been mixed by Grammy winner Mark Needham (The Killers, The 1975), and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Arctic Monkeys, Beastie Boys, The Clash). The band are also currently working on tracks with Rhianna and Calvin Harris writers.
Over its 13 songs, ‘A Heartbreaker’s Guide To The Galaxy’ serves as an addictive, wider introduction to the band, packed with tracks that deliver rousing, anthemic hooks while carrying important and emotional messages. The beautiful artwork is designed by the band’s drummer and graphic artist – a perfect demonstration of the hard work and artistry that goes into everything they do.
The band embark on their biggest headline tour in the UK in October – in partnership with Live Nation / Metropolis – and it’s already selling out. Promoters from across Europe are eager to have them back after seeing their performances while supporting P!nk and talks are in progress for 2019/2010 shows.
Bang Bang Romeo have support from some notable industry bodies including MTV BBC News & Radio, Sky TV, Virgin Radio, Radio X, Solo Music, Live Nation, Marshall Arts, NME, The Independent, The Metro and the list of supporters grows weekly.
All this is what makes Bang Bang Romeo such a force to be reckoned with. A multi-talented UK band fronted by one of the most remarkable vocalists and performers of the 21st Century in the form of the torch-bearing Anastasia “Stars” Walker, they are a unique and powerful proposition poised for global success.
