A BUMPER weekend of live music has got even better with the addition of another band.

Mod legends Secret Affair, who perform mod revival, power pop and soul genres of music have been added to the card that will see artists play live music in the Premier Suite at the Macron Stadium as part of the initiative, Bolton Live.

The show, which takes place on Saturday, August 20th, will be headlined by From the Jam.

Damian Chadwick, venue controller at the Macron Stadium, said: “The show really is starting to build itself now, we announced From the Jam a few weeks back and I’m delighted we’ve secured the support of Secret Affair.

“Secret Affair is our latest announcement and it certainly won’t be the last.

“We’re constantly in talks with a whole host of performers and we’ll be making further additions to the line-up in the near future.”

As well as Secret Affair and From the Jam performing on the Saturday, chart-topping Scouting for Girls will be headlining in the Premier Suite the following day.
