Dragonforce To Play Club Where They Started Ahead Of Its Closing

(TeamRock Radio) Dragonforce are to play at a doomed Essex club to highlight the plight of closure-threatened music venues in the UK. They'll perform at The Square in Harlow on August 22, which is set to shut down after a series of concerts entitled Back To Square One, featuring successful acts who played there before they made the big time.

Guitarist Herman Li says: "DragonForce cut its teeth by playing an array of pubs and small clubs up and down the country, which are vital for bands to gain live experience.

"We're seeing venues disappear and it's becoming quite alarming. The Peel in Kingston, The Empress in Bradford, The Mean Fiddler in London we played all of these in the distant past but they've all gone."

The band first played The Square 14 years ago. Li continues: "It's really very sad. But more to the point, it will affect the development of new talent in the UK." Read more here.
