Carling, the beer behind some of Britain’s biggest and best live music events, developed Carling Live 24 in 2004 giving over 20,000 music fans the opportunity to travel from one venue straight to the next to watch some of the biggest bands around. After the success of last year’s Carling Live 24, this year it’s back, and bigger than ever: 2 great cities, 26 Bands, 13 Venues, ALL IN 24 HOURS… Live music could not get any better!

T ickets for all Carling Live 24 shows go on sale from 9am on Friday 18th March exclusively through www.carlinglive.com.

Carling Live 24 will kick off at 7am on Saturday and fans with enough stamina can rock through to 7am the following morning. 13 venues in London and Manchester will play host to exhilarating live sets from over 26 artists including Embrace, TheZutons, Ian Brown, Babyshambles, The Chemical Brothers, Doves, KaiserChiefs and many more - making this one of the biggest music events to hit the cities in 2005!

Carling Live 24 marks the start of the summer for music lovers, bringing the festival vibe to the heart of the city, with great music and cold beer courtesy of Carling.

Danny McNamara, lead singer of Embrace commented:

“We are looking forward to playing the Shepherds Bush Empire again. The gig we did there last year was a real highlight for us because the crowd were absolutely mental. Playing so early will be a nice change for us and will give us plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the bands - hopefully we will be able to stay up for the full 24 hours!”

Dave McCabe, lead singer of The Zutons commented:

"We always have a great time playing in London; we are particularly looking forward to this show as the crowd at Carling Academy Brixton are always boss."

Martin Coyle, Head of Sponsorship, Coors Brewers commented:
