Rock legends Primal Scream will perform live at BBC Radio 5 live's Big Day Out 2013 at Echo Arena, Liverpool.

The band will join hosts Colin Murray, Robbie Savage and Mark Chapman for the event on Saturday 1 June for an evening of sporting wit, banter and comedy, all topped off with an exclusive live set featuring tracks from their new album More Light and extensive back catalogue.

Talking about joining the BBC Radio 5 live Big Day Out line-up, the band says: "We have a busy summer lined up, but it'll be great to be back in front of a Liverpool audience for this one-off gig. We're all big football fans, so are looking forward to listening to the banter, before rounding off the night with a selection of songs from the new album More Light, along with some classic tracks."

Primal Scream will then take to the stage to top off what promises to be a brilliant night.
