Kit­tens to switch on Xmas lights

Hamilton Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Ste­fanie Mc­court

Atomic Kit­ten star Liz Mcclarnon has promised Hamil­ton shop­pers “a scream” as she pre­pares to per­form in the town.

The girl­band – cur­rently a two­piece act – will be tak­ing to the stage on Cas­tle Street to switch on the Christ­mas lights later this month.

Liz will be joined by Natasha Hamil­ton for the festive date on Satur­day, Novem­ber 24. And she says they can’t wait to per­form in front of a La­nark­shire crowd.

She said: “I’m sure we’ll get a great re­cep­tion – the fur­ther north we go, the more fun we have!

“As Scousers our­selves, we’re al­ways up for a laugh and I know we’ll have a good time.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to com­ing to Scot­land again, we had a scream the last time and I’m sure it will be the same again this time around.”

The band formed in 1998 in Liver­pool as a three-piece and have evolved into a duo over the years.

Liz said: “We en­joy per­form­ing to­gether and Natasha is look­ing for­ward to com­ing to Hamil­ton – with the same sur­name, I’m sure she’ll feel right at home!

“We’ll be per­form­ing Whole Again, The Tide Is High, Eter­nal Flame and Last Good­bye.

“We haven’t thought of per­form­ing some Christ­mas num­bers, but watch this space!”

The trip to Hamil­ton will kick off fes­tiv­i­ties for the band, with Liz look­ing for­ward to a break over Christ­mas. She con­tin­ued: “This will be the first Christ­mas I’ve had off in seven years, so I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to it.

“We just love Christ­mas and this time of year. Over the years, the Kit­tens al­ways made time to be at the stu­dio no mat­ter how busy we were, just so we had time to meet up and swap presents.”

The fun will start on from 2pm, lead­ing up to Atomic Kit­ten singing live on stage from 5pm.
