Lighthouse is delighted to announce that indie rock favourites Bombay Bicycle Club are to play the Concert Hall on Thursday 11th July. The band’s much-praised latest album, My Big Day, features a host of guest vocalists that perfectly encapsulates the breadth of the band’s widespread appeal, including Damon Albarn, Jay Som, Nilüfer Yanya, Holly Humberstone and the legendary Chaka Khan.   

Frontman Jack Steadman sits on both sides of the glass for the duration of the record, having previously produced their fourth album So Long, See You Tomorrow, and co-produced 2020’s Everything Else Has Gone Wrong with John Congleton. Additional production comes from Paul Epworth on the track Heaven and Ben Allen who co-produces Turn The World On. The lead single, the gloriously funky Tekken 2, was recorded with Grammy Award-winning superstar Chaka Khan, who explained: “After Jack invited me and then sent the song, I loved it, the ethereal part drew me in.

“The band has such innovative and passionate energy, truly great musicians. Absolute vibes.”  

This led to Jack jetting off to LA to capture her distinctive vocal line as Tekken 2 showcases not just the band’s versatile musical prowess, but also their capacity to attract monumental talent spanning various music domains. “It has been a pretty crazy journey,” says Jack. “From sitting on my sofa messing around with a keyboard and drum machine to sitting across from Chaka Khan in a fancy LA studio giving her singing directions. “Chaka was an absolute superstar and the whole experience was so positive. I think the song reflects that – it’s about coming together, putting any bad thoughts aside and just enjoying the moment.” My Big Day is an album that means business, sculpted by one of Britain’s best guitar bands and as they take it to stages across the world, it’s a show you won’t want to miss.
