Personal gig for two Kerrang! listeners

A rock band have performed a private 20 minute-set for two Kerrang! Radio listeners after their turned up late for a gig at the station’s studios.

Matt McVeigh and Amy Randle arrived just as The Subways were packing up and the audience had gone home, after getting lost on the way to the Bauer-owned station.

But the band took pity on the couple, pulled out their guitars and did an exclusive performance for Matt and Amy.

“We got totally lost and couldn’t find the radio station,” said Matt, from Rugby. “By the time we got there, they’d finished! But it’s not every day your favourite band plays for just you!”

Kerrang! Radio regularly puts on gigs for 150 listeners in a special stage area at their studios in Birmingham city centre.

Programme Director James Walshe told “The Subways were brilliant – not often a band would take pity on fans the way they did. It’s not rare for a visiting band to go the extra mile but this is taking it to extremes!”
