Brock leaver Justin supports The Rolling Stones in Southampton with his band The Vaccines
Posted on: 5th June 2018
Former Brockenhurst College student Justin Young warmed up for rock legends The Rolling Stones with his band The Vaccines at Southampton’s Saint Mary’s Stadium last week.
The 31-year-old from Southampton told the 25,000-strong crowd that playing for the Stones in his hometown was a double dream come true.
Before the gig he told the Daily Echo: “To play with the Rolling Stones in a football stadium and in the one that I grew up in watching football every weekend is so special – and with my family living just ten miles down the road too!”
The Vaccines were named best new band at the NME Awards in 2012 and have collected a few other awards along the way.
The indie-rock outfit are now signed to Columbia Records and have sold over a million records worldwide.
Their latest album Combat Sports was released earlier this year.
