Ash drop in to rock the Kings Hall
ASH were still studying for their A-levels when they bounded onto the music scene with their debut album 1977 in 1996.
The energetic Irish three-piece are celebrating their 20th year together with a UK tour and have been signed by promoters Viva La Sociale to play Herne Bay's 500-capacity Kings Hall next Thursday.
The following day they will support Coldplay at the Emirates Stadium in London.
Ash have lost none of the energy which took them to the Top Of The Pops studio while awaiting their exam results.

Since then they have notched up five studio albums and a mini-album) using their own studio and Atomic Heart label.
Recent works include their A-Z series, a collection of 26 songs released every two weeks for an entire year in 2009-2010.
Frontman Tim Wheeler's tunes have provided the soundtrack for many a summer. He won an Ivor Novello award for best contemporary pop song in 2001 for Shining Light.
The band started out as a three-piece, later recruiting Charlotte Hatherley, who stayed with them as second guitarist for nine years.
Tim, 35, plays keyboards along with his trademark Korina Gibson Flying V guitar.
Mark Hamilton plays bass and synth while drummer Rick McMurray also contributes backing vocals.
Wheeler and Co have never stuck to any particular genre, morphing from straightforward indie to pop punk, shades of Goth metal colliding with rambling piano-driven experimental work.
It is this diversity that has always been one of the band's charms.
Ash, Kings Hall, Herne Bay, Thursday, May 31, 7.30pm. Tickets cost £15 from 01227 373322.
