Speaking about the reunion shows, frontman Jon Windle says:
“We’ve had offers over the last few years to do something, but it was never the right time due to other things that were going on in our lives. This time it was perfect, we are all in a really good place and just can’t wait to do it.”
Sparking a flurry of speculation in fan circles with a series of cryptic clues on their social media, the Sheffield indie favourites officially broke their 11-year silence to announce a one-off reunion show to an overwhelming response.

FOR MORE INFORMATION
Stalwarts of Sheffield’s famously thriving indie scene of the noughties, Little Man Tate rubbed shoulders with the likes of Bromheads Jacket, Milburn, Reverend & The Makers and Arctic Monkeys to put the Steel City back on the musical map.
Forming in 2005, the band announced themselves with the infectious first single ‘The Agent’ to a sold-out vinyl run instantly lapped-up by 1800 fans quick to recognise something special in the making. Self released via the band’s own Yellow Van Records label, the track was followed by unprecedented Top 40 hit ‘What? What You Got?’, earmarking Little Man Tate as one of the UK’s hottest new prospects and igniting a bidding war amongst multiple record labels. Signing with V2 Records in 2006, LMT went on to invade the UK Top 40 with their next four singles, including ‘House Party At Boothy’s’ and their totemic Top 20 smash ‘Sexy In Latin’; whilst watching their sensational debut album ‘About What You Know’ climb to #27 in the UK Albums Chart in 2007.
In just two years, Little Man Tate staked their place as a must-see on the live circuit and stepped up to huge slots at major festivals such as Reading + Leeds, plus played a momentous pre-Christmas show at the iconic Empress Ballroom in Blackpool. Swiftly following-up their debut, the band would release their second and final album: ‘Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy’ in 2008, before making the difficult decision to part-ways. In 2009, Little Man Tate stepped up to play two phenomenal sold-out shows at the O2 Academy in Sheffield, bowing-out of music with an unforgettable bang.
From conquering the dancefloors of the indie-discos to putting pop-stars out of place in the UK charts, spurred on by their dedicated fanbase Little Man Tate achieved in just four years what most band’s could only dare to dream of.
In 2020, the Sheffield favourites are back together and ready to set the nation alight all over again. Reuniting for two nights of celebrations at the Sheffield O2 Academy, Little Man Tate will be taking over the venue for an unmissable House Party, Boothy’s-style; these four walls won’t forget this night…
