Boy-band Lawson had their big break when they began touring with acts like The Wanted, Jessie J and Avril Lavigne, but have since grown in popularity and now return to the Doncaster Dome as the headline act.

Lawson formed in 2009, then called The Grove, through MySpace and old school and college friends and comprise of lead singer Andy Brown, bass guitarist, Ryan Fletcher, lead guitarist Joel Peat and drummer Adam Pitts.

The band spent their first two years as a band playing small gigs, and trying to get their music out there to a bigger audience.

But it wasn’t until they supported The Wanted as an unsigned band in 2011 that their luck began to change.

Soon after the tour, the band were snapped up and offered a two deal record contract with Polydor and were soon back on the road opening for Will Young and Avril Lavigne, among others.

Lawson released their debut single, When She Was Mine in May 2012, which charted at number four, and helped them secure sell out gigs in London, Glasgow, Manchester, Nottingham and Sheffield on their second headline tour.

Today the band have five top 20 singles and a top five album under their belt and have a hoard of devoted fans they call ‘geese’.

Last time Lawson performed at the Doncaster Dome, they did so on a joint billing with girl group, The Saturdays, but will return to the venue on Monday as the headliner.

Lawson will be joined by Midlands four piece, Paighton and London boy band, Room 94.

Performance start at 7.30pm and tickets start at £19. For more information or to book please call 01302 303959 or visit www.the-dome.co.uk
