Indie band Toploader - of Dancing In The Moonlight fame - are set to play at the Citadel.

The Eastbourne-based band enjoyed huge success around the turn of the millennium with their multi-platinum debut album Onka’s Big Moka.

Since then they have performed alongside the likes of Coldplay, Muse and Bon Jovi and had the honour of being the last British band to play at the old Wembley Stadium.

After several quiet years following the release of their second album Magic Hotel in 2002, the band returned with a third album in 2011, entitled Only Human.

And, in early 2013, Toploader released a new single Turn It Around, co-written with Eg White and produced by Andy Green (Keane, Scouting For Girls).

The song was included on a four-song EP which got great reviews and strong support from BBC Radio 2.

Then, last summer, Dancing In The Moonlight even re-entered the Top 40 for three weeks - an incredible 13 years after it was first released, cementing it as one of the biggest songs of recent years.

To cap a great year the band released their new single This Is The Night - co-produced with Tim Bran (London Grammar) - which received Radio 2 A-list support and went to number one in the Radio 2 Airplay Chart.

Still consisting of four of the band’s five original members - Joseph Washbourn, Dan Hipgrave, Rob Green and Matt Knight - they are set play numerous festivals this summer.

Toploader are set to play at the Citadel on Friday, July 18. Tickets for the gig, priced £15, are on sale now.
