COUNTRY rockers Police Dog Hogan are returning to The Met.

The band will play at the Bury venue at 8pm on March 15 as they hit the road for a Spring Tour.

Formed in 2009 and with over 300 shows already under their belts, the band regularly perform to sell-out audiences across the country, marrying a devotion to touring and consummate live performances.

Band leader James Studholme said: "We always have a great time in Bury. We’ve made a lot of new friends on our previous visits and it is always great to see them again."

A tight-knit seven-piece combining guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, accordion, trumpet, keyboards, bass and drums, Police Dog Hogan's repertoire boasts Americana tinged songs tackling subjects from the First World War to love, loss and inferior white wine.

The outfit's fourth studio album, Wild By The Side of The Road, was released in 2017, and the band were one of only three UK groups invited to perform at the prestigious 2014 Americana Music Awards in Nashville.

There they were snapped-up for a recording by legendary DJ and former Old Grey Whistle Test presenter "Whispering" Bob Harris, in town for the awards.

The video has since become one of the most watched on his Under the Apple Tress Sessions Youtube channel, and in 2015 the band joined Mr Harris on his BBC Radio 2 show.

The band has also made numerous festival appearances and headline slots, including a performance on the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury in 2016, as well as appearances at Bestival, Lamer Tree, Cornbury, Kendal Calling, and Port Eliot festivals.

Tickets priced £16 are available at The Met box office on 01617612261 or at
