THE former frontman of one of Manchester’s most influential bands is performing at a Hitchin venue this weekend.

Tom Hingley, who was Inspiral Carpets’ vocalist, is set to perform at The Albert in Hitchin.

It’s clearly a popular venue for the Mancunian, who has appeared at the pub before, most recently in December.

Hingley enjoyed success with alternative rock group Inspiral Carpets, but is now flying solo and has made quite a name for himself on his own merits.

He’s currently touring the country on his solo acoustic tour, bringing the sounds of his heartfelt blues inspired songs to the crowds.

Catch him in action, with support from Pete Guy, at the Walsworth Road venue on Sunday. Entry is free.
