Former Rydal Penrhos pupil to headline landmark Cardiff Castle gig with Catfish & the Bottlemen
15th December 2017

A former Rydal Penrhos pupil will be taking the stage with chart-topping band Catfish and the Bottlemen for a pair of special shows.

Rob Hall, who left the school in 2011, is a drummer with the indie four-piece that have taken the music scene by storm in recent years, and the group announced via social media they will be headlining This is Tomorrow Festival on May 25 at Spillers Wharf in Newcastle, which will also see Everything Everything, Sam Fender and Little Comets.

They will also be taking to the stage for a landmark performance at Cardiff Castle on July 29, with a number of special guests to be confirmed at a later date.

Tickets for both events will go on sale this Friday from 10am, with further dates set to be announced in the coming weeks.

It has been another hugely successful year for Rob as part of the group, who were invited to support the legendary Green Day on their Radio Revolution tour throughout the United States.

Their second album The Ride reached number one in the UK Album Chart thanks to the cult following they have developed throughout the country, while they have also played at venues in Europe, Japan and Australia in their quest for global dominance.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “Rob’s career has gone from strength-to-strength as part of Catfish and the Bottlemen, and it is fantastic to see one of our talented musicians go on to great things.”
