Achieving a number one album, and a mostly sold-out arena tour, South Yorkshire band, The Reytons have proved you do not need record company backing to enjoy success if your music resonates with people in such a way that you can be propelled to the top through word-of-mouth.
And the band cemented their status as indie superstars last night (Saturday, September 30) when they played to a sold-out, Steel City crowd of some 13,500 fans at the Utilita Arena Sheffield.
Several of those fans took to social media to congratulate The Reytons on an 'incredible' concert.
Ade Brandwood posted on Twitter: "Reytons at Sheffield Arena => Absolutely smashed it. Rotherham’s finest sell out the 13,000 capacity arena. Played for close to 2 hours. Finished with Kids of the Estate. Support from the K’s."
