LIVERPOOL music legend Mick Head has revealed a gargantuan homecoming show at Grand Central Hall this December in conjunction with his label Violette and Harvest Sun.

Just in time for Christmas, the 'lost genius' will be heading to the Renshaw Street venue on Saturday, December 15.

Mick said: “This is a show I am really looking forward to. Grand Central Hall on Renshaw Street is an important building in a part of town which has featured large in the lives of lots of kids growing up in Liverpool over the years.

"On entering the empty venue recently, I was struck with excitement and possibilities: Christmas, Liverpool, Grand Central Hall, a full house, a big stage, the Red Elastic Band... let's have it.”

Starting out in The Pale Fountains with his younger brother John in the early 1980s, Mick went on to release two albums for Virgin and then formed Shack in 1986.

The band released five critically acclaimed records including HMS Fable for London Records in 1999.

In 1997 Mick released The Magical World Of The Strands, under Michael Head & The Strands, this work has been deemed as arguably his 'most acclaimed and accomplished album to date'.

Fast-forward to 2013 when Mick made his return as Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band before releasing album Adiós Señor Pussycat which took number one spot on the Independent Albums Chart.

Co-founder of record label Violette Matt Lockett explained: “This show at Grand Central Hall is one which we have been working on for some time.

"It's a Victorian, psychedelic circus of a place - possibly the perfect venue for Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band.”

Tickets for Michael Head and The Red Elastic Band go on open sale from 9am on Friday, September 14 and are priced at £22.50 via www.michaelhead.net/boxoffice
