A POPULAR three-piece band from St Albans have decided to treat their hometown fans to a secret gig at the Alban Arena.
Friendly Fires, who played one of Glastonbury's biggest stages at this year's festival, are releasing a new single, Kiss of Life, at the end of August and are celebrating with a special St Albans show on September 3.
Friendly Fires - comprising singer and bassist Ed Macfarlane, guitarist Edd Gibson and drummer Jack Savidge - met at St Albans School and formed their first band when they were aged 14.
The band, who organised the Alban Arena gig themselves, said that they were looking forward to their homecoming show: "Edd once went to see Sooty at this venue and said it was one of the greatest gigs of his life, so if you manage to get a ticket you know you're in for something special."

They added: "We're hoping to hold an after party at the Horn Pub in St Albans, where we played some of our earliest gigs eight to 10 years ago so look out for that too."
Tickets for the special gig go on sale today (Thursday ) at 7pm and can only be purchased online at www.crowdsurge.com/ friendlyfires
