Blossoms and The Lathums were joined by Zuzu at the pilot event in Liverpool.
Blossoms headlined a gig in front of 5,000 people, a slightly reduced capacity, at Sefton Park yesterday which was arranged to continue the gradual return of live music to the UK.
Those in attendance were not required to wear masks or socially distance, instead required to produce a negative COVID test 24 hours before the concert, and they will be asked to take another at a later date to monitor any possible transmission rates.
Social media has been full of pictures and videos from the significant occasion, The Lathums writing on their Twitter feed that they would, ‘cherish the moment forever’.
“Live music is a must have in my life, and a year without it is a year too long,” the pilot event’s organiser Melvin Benn has said.
“The Sefton Park Pilot is the most important event in the Event Research Programme for getting festivals back this year and I’m delighted to play my part.”
“It’s not about vaccines, it’s not about passports, it’s not about limiting it to a section of society only: it’s about a universal approach to our love of live music for all and demonstrating we can do it safely.”
What a night Sefton Park! That was special. ❤️ Thank you to everyone involved 🙌🎤🎪

I have no words to describe last night. It was one of the greatest honours of my life to get to open last nights show on home soil. I fucking love Liverpool and I’m so proud of our city. It was pure love in that tent last night, I’ll never experience anything like it again. pic.twitter.com/qn8H6SC4NX
