The lead singer and guitarist from Mercury Music prize winning English indie band, Gomez, returns to Shetland next year for 2 very special intimate shows. Ben Ottewell will perform at The String in Lerwick on Friday 6th March after selling out the intimate venue on Saturday 7th March within 36 hours. Ottewell launched a solo career in 2011 after Gomez went on hiatus. The band won the coveted Mercury Music Prize in 1998 for their debut album Bring It On, while they were also nominated for a Brit Award. Ottewell released his third solo record A Man Apart in 2017 and its sound dips toes into folk rock, with the musician adding his distinctive soulful voice. Gomez are back in the recording studio, with a new album and tour planned for 2020. The show, being promoted by Klub Revolution as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations, will offer islanders a rare opportunity to see this artist up close and personal with only 50 tickets available for the show. Tickets are only available online from: northstarevents.bigcartel.com. ** Please note that you won't receive a physical ticket for this show, just turn up with your PayPal confirmation and ID to gain entry.
