Cold call for fans of band
OUR very own Coldplay tribute act is promising an extravaganza at The Beachcomber – with what promise to be mesmerising glow-in-the-dark props.
Coldplace's gig in Cleethorpes tonight sold out in two weeks – but don't fear, the band has expanded into the main room, so 200 tickets will be available on the door.
The four-piece, who will be supported by London band The Fuse, will be playing big hits such as Paradise and The Hardest Part.
In seven years, the Grimsby tribute band has put more than 300 gigs under their belts across the length and breadth of the UK, and abroad in countries such as Malta, Dominican Republic, Netherlands, Romania, Germany, Belgium, Russia, Turkey and Ireland.

Chris Martin sound-a-like and look-a-like, lead singer Shane Crofts, said: "We want this gig to be bigger and better then ever before. We have spent a fortune on props.
"We want to give the audience a full show experience, rather than just a gig and I don't want to give too much away regarding the props.
"We played at The Trawl, in Grimsby, in January and it was packed full of fans.
"I was quite surprised we sold out in two weeks because we only advertised the gig on Facebook."
Shane, 35, of Grimsby's Willows Estate, said they toured with support band The Fuse in Holland.
"I really enjoy their music," he said. "It is very much Eighties-themed and I think they fit in really well with our music. They are very professional, too.
"I think the secret to a successful support band has to be dedication and trying to get it just right.
"When we perform, we give 110 per cent and every time we play, we are very critical when we come off stage to try to improve."
The band also comprises James Brown as Johnny Buckland, Asa Crofts as Guy Berriman and Wayne Birch as Will Champion.
Their reputation is rapidly spreading around the globe as being the best and most authentic tribute to Coldplay, with mentions on Sky News and on BBC Radio.
Shane, who is a window cleaner by trade, said: "I think my favourite to perform has to be God Put A Smile Upon Your Face because it is slightly more rockier.
"I saw Coldplay perform it at the 02 Arena and Chris threw his guitar on the floor during the finale, but I don't think I can afford a broken guitar!
"It's always a fantastic experience playing at home and we cannot wait to see all our local fans.
"We will be performing classics and new songs for about 90 minutes."
After The Beachcomber gig, the band have many festival dates lined up around the world in places such as Portugal.
Tonight, the doors open at 7.30pm and the acoustic set begins at 8pm.
Tickets cost £8 on the door.
