“I can’t wait [to play LIMF]. I’m so excited that we’re already planning what we’re going to do and I know it’s going to be an amazing event which I’m really happy to be doing. Liverpool’s such a buzzing city, the people are always so receptive and welcoming, it’s always a good vibe and you always know you’re guaranteed to get a great energy from the crowd. When people say Liverpool you know you’re in for a good one.”

I’ve always had a great reception from Liverpool many times. I was there recently and it was a sick night, an amazing reception and it’s always a great night there.”
