Reef are back on tour in the UK again later this year and will be coming to the Engine Shed in Lincoln as part of the run.

The west country rockers, fronted by Gary Stringer, first found fame in the mid-90’s thanks to their song Naked being used in a Sony Minidisc commercial.

They are perhaps best known for their 1996 hit Place Your Hands, which was adopted by Chris Evans on his show TFI Friday and is still played in indie and rock clubs across the country today, along with chart-topping second album Glow.

Glow is one of three top-10 albums the band have had.

Their debut effort, Replenish in 1995, reached number nine in the UK, followed by the chart-topping Glow in 1997, while Rides, which was released in 1999, reached number three in the UK charts.

Since the arrival of Jesse Wood on guitar in April 2014, Reef have been winning new critical acclaim.

This year they released a new live album and a cover of the Aretha Franklin gospel classic How I Got Over, which further increased the interest in their upcoming UK tour.

They are at the Engine Shed on November 26.

Tickets are £20 on 0844 8888766 or www.engineshed.co.uk
