Reverend And The Makers - Reverend And The Makers Open Tramlines

Reverend and the Makers opened Tramlines festival in Sheffield last night (20.07.12).

The 'Heavyweight Champion of the World' band took part in the Nokia Lumia Live showcase at the three-day free event, with a homecoming show in front of 8,000 people, in the Northern English city.

Speaking ahead of their set, Frontman John McLure exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I'm buzzing I'm so excited, almost every person I've ever known ever in the world is here tonight. We've been away three years and haven't made a record, and I often thought, there will never be a moment like this ever again for us. But we've come back, album went top twenty, tour's selling and this festival is rammed, and we're happy to be back.''

The crowd had been handed special Xylobands - wristbands which light up in synch with the music, first used by Coldplay - at the event, which activated as the band played 'Silence is Talking'at the end of the set and throughout closing act True Tiger DJs' performance, the first time this technology has ever been used at a festival.

True Tiger DJs said: ''We're really excited about the Nokia light show, it's all pretty cool, and it's gonna be cool to see what it looks like, especially when you're looking out into the crowd - whenever you get that kind of moment with lighters or phones it's really cool.

''We're in an era of DJs doing big shows now with big stage and light production so its cool to be involved in something like this which is really out there.''

Tramlines festival continues today (21.07.12) and Sunday (22.07.12) with performances from We Are Scientists, Roots Manuva, and Toddla T among many others. Also at the festival Nokia will continue to stage their Lumia Live gigs including shows by Blood Sport, Danny Beck, and MJ Cole.
