Toploader will perform at Docks Academy in Grimsby this October



Toploader will be coming to Grimsby this Autumn.

Marking 25 years since their formation this year, the longstanding East Sussex band will be hitting the road with an unmissable headline performance at the Docks Academy on 22nd October. 

Since forming in 1997 Toploader have over two million album sales to their name and a string of top 20 hits both home and abroad. Their debut album ‘Onka’s Big Moka’ sold over one million copies and remained in the Top 5 of the UK album chart for over six months earning them 4 Brit Award nominations.

Perhaps best known for the single ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’, the track became a global hit in 2000 and launched the band into the European Airplay Charts; transforming Toploader into a household name in the process. In 2013 the same track re-entered the Top 40 for three weekends and topped the 10,000,000 hits mark on Youtube, an incredible thirteen years after it was first released, cementing it as one of the biggest songs of recent times.

Their second album ‘Magic Hotel’ reached number 3 in the UK Albums Chart and saw Joseph Washbourn (singer), Dan Hipgrave (guitar) AND Rob Green (drums) embark on the biggest tour of their careers playing to over 100,000 people in the UK alone.

In 2013 Toploader released two singles ‘Turn It Around,‘ co-written with Eg White (Adele, James Morrison) and produced by Andy Green (Keane, Scouting For Girls) and ‘This Is The Night,‘ produced by Tim Bran (London Grammar). Both tracks were excellently received by the press and gained strong support with BBC Radio 2 with placements on the ‘A’ Playlist. ‘This Is the Night’ gave them their first No.1 in the Radio 2 Airplay Charts.

Releasing their acclaimed 4th album ‘Seeing Stars’ in 2017, it marked a welcome return from the indie mainstays and featured singles including ‘Roll With The Punches’ and ‘Boom’, as-produced by Andy Green. 

With a reputation as a genuine crowd-pleasing live band Toploader have backed the likes of Paul Weller, Robbie Williams, Noel Gallagher, Tom Jones, Simple Minds and Bon Jovi, where they were also the last British band to play the original Wembley Stadium.

With a host of festival appearances across the UK and Europe throughout the Summer, their appearance in Grimsby this autumn will see the band on finessed form as they celebrate a landmark quarter-century anniversary of Toploader.
