They've opened for Status Quo, The Darkness and Slade, but now Walkway are preparing for one of their most special shows to date.

The rockers from Diss are about to hit a landmark achievement some artists can only dream of - performing their 1000th gig.

Taking place at The Waterfront Studio, Norwich on Saturday, July 8, the show will coincide with the release of their third studio album, WWIII.

Recorded earlier this year the album contains 12 new songs plus a tribute to late Status Quo member Rick Parfitt.

Chris Ready, lead singer of Walkway, said: 'To reach the 1000th show landmark is a milestone which we are really proud to achieve.
