Las Vegas rockers Taking Dawn return to the UK today and perform in Southsea on Thursday.

After an exciting year supporting labelmates Airbourne on their sold-out UK run and also rock legends Kiss on their UK arena tour, the band were last seen here last summer, opening the main stage at Download Festival.

Since then they’ve gone on to do shows with Murderdolls and Slash in the US.

Frontman Chris Babbitt is happy to be returning to the UK.

He says: ‘If it wasn’t for the UK fans I’d be at the end of my rope, making swing music.’

You can see the band on Thursday at the Wedgewood Rooms with support from Dendera from 8pm.

Tickets cost £10 from (023) 9286 3911 or wedgewood-rooms.co.uk.
