Portadown urged to back local band in charity gig

Talented Portadown musicians Microlip will join JLS and The Voice winner Andrea Begley on-stage this summer at two charity concerts.

The lads, who have gone from strength to strength since they formed in 2008, will belt out some of their best tunes such as Man of Steel and Silver Lining at the outdoor concerts.

They will be joined onstage by pop boyband JLS and Britain’s Got Talent Finalist Jordan O’Keefe at Newry’s Pairc Esler on August 1.

On August 2 at Belfast’s Titanic Slipway, they will also be joined by The Voice winner Andrea Begley for the concert which will help raise funds for NI Cancer Fund for Children.

The concerts are running as part of a series of special World Police and Fire Games events.

Microlip, who have previously shared a stage with the likes of The Script, Panama Kings and Two door Cinema Club, are ecstatic to be involved in the events and are encouraging locals from Portadown to come out and support them and NI Cancer Fund for Children.

Tickets are only £19.50 and can be obtained from www.ticketmaster.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.ie.
