Tom Grennan has been having one hell of a year – meeting his “heroes” Liam Gallagher, Alex Turner and Dave Grohl. Now, he’s planning for his ‘biblical’ headline show at Brixton Academy. Watch our video interview with Grennan above.

“Wow, a bit loose man – it was a wicked night,” said Grennan, “I enjoyed every minute of it, I’m not going to lie to you. I saw Liam, LG, and then I was happy man. I met him, I got to shake his hand, it was alright.

“He didn’t look at me when he did it, do you know what I mean? But yeah, he was cool.”

We also had to ask him about revealing to the world his awkward encounter about meeting Alex Turner in a toilet.

“That was the most embarrassing time,” replied Grennan. “I bottled it and ran away. If I meet him again, then I’ll tell him about it. I bottled it, hard. He’s my hero man.

“A lot of people laughed, a lot of people gave me a bit of grief for it, I’m not gonna lie. But that’s the story, that’s how it went.”

And as for the BRITs themelves, Grennan had his sites on reuniting with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.

“I’m looking forward to meeting Dave Grohl, if I can. I actually met him about two or three weeks ago in LA. I had a good old conversation with him, so I’d like to have a good old conversation with him again.”

“He’s one of my heroes. It was just general chit-chat, man – we were just talking about Glastonbury. He was well cool.”

Meanwhile, he’s also pretty excited about his biggest show to date – headlining the O2 Academy in Brixton.

“It’s crazy. I never thought I’d play the shows that I’ve played and am about to play,” Grennan told NME. “To be putting on Brixton without even an album out is blowing my mind.

“We’re going to make it biblical, mate. We’re going to make it feel like Jesus Christ has come back to life. It’s going to be a proper, proper show – proper Spinal Tap.”
