Million selling chart act The Feeling are to perform during next year’s TT.

The band will be playing in the TT Hospitality Unit at the Paddock on Saturday June 1 as part of the official festival entertainment programme.

The Feeling reissued their acclaimed Twelve Stops And Home album this year, celebrating 12 years since its original release, and performed at venues across the UK on their first tour for over two years.

Despite being largely self-recorded in the garden shed of band members Ciaran and Kevin Jeremiah’s parents’ Sussex home, the debut album was soon hailed a masterpiece of infectious pop.

It produced five hit singles – Sewn, Fill My Little World, Never Be Lonely, Rose and Love It When You Call – and earned them the Ivor Novello Award for Songwriters of the Year.

Second album, Join with Us, reached number 1 in the UK and the band released three further albums – Together We Were Made, Boy Cried Wolf and the self-titled 5th studio album.

The band have appeared at numerous festivals including the V Festival, Coachella in the USA and Glastonbury where they performed on the prestigious Pyramid Stage.

The band also played at Chris Evans’s Carfest in 2018. Other live appearances include an appearance at Wembley Stadium for the Diana Tribute Concert and many international tours including the USA and Japan.

Meanwhile, it has been announced that Ticketmaster Sport has become the official ticketing partner for the TT.
