TOURING bands are set to have somewhere to practice before heading out on the road thanks to a Lakeside business.
Bosses at Fly By Nite will be building a bespoke arena-sized rehearsal space next to their site in Shawbank Road for musicians to use before they go on tour.
It comes after the entertainment transport firm doubled the size of its fleet in four years after winning new contracts with bands including The Killers, Foo Fighters and Franz Ferdinand.
Director Carl Reed said: "Purchasing this new site is the next step in the company's growth strategy and has presented us with a great opportunity to develop a comprehensive rehearsal space. A full production rehearsal can take up to five days and this will enable us to offer an essential service to clients in a central location.
Jeremy Cope, lead partner at Smith Cooper in Birmingham which has been supporting the company's growth, added: "The opportunity to deliver a full-size rehearsal space at the new site will allow the business to steal a march on its competitors and further enhance the services available to its clients.
"Our specialist advisory team has worked closely with Fly By Nite to help it develop and implement its growth plans and the next 12 months will be an exciting time for the business."
