After a stint away, Ellie Goulding has returned to the UK for a tour celebrating the re-release of second studio album Halcyon.
Following the release of their second album BE last month, Beady Eye have announced an 8 date tour later this year.
MGMT have announced their return with a short string of UK tour dates.
This year holds a first for Slam Dunk who take their festival to Wolverhampton, making use of the vast space the Civic Hall has to offer as well as incorporating the newly opened Numa Bar and two outdoor stages.
On their first night in Wolverhampton, the band cherry picked from their debut album ‘Tourist History’ as well as recent album ‘Beacon’.
Stereophonics reminded everyone just why they’ve always been one of our favourite bands and arguably the best band sent from the valleys. All round fantastic, hats off lads.
Sigur Ros’ last release, the ethereal and hard to digest Valtari, was met with mixed reactions. It wasn’t long after its release, the sixth studio album by the band, that members hinted they would be taking a hard left turn – whatever that meant. However, after the initial violin-bow-aided wall of white noise intro, all fears were quickly allayed.
For a band who some would assume to now be slipping into the doldrums of long gone “British guitar hopes”, Kaiser Chiefs were undeniably on form, playing like a band with just as much vigour (if not possibly more) as when they first started, and a slimline Ricky proving his chops as a still electrifying frontman.
Who would’ve thought four, down to earth lads would form one of the most loved bands in Wolverhampton right now? It’s been a hectic and busy year for The Lines but tonight was the ultimate send off and saw them take to the iconic Civic Hall’s stage, making it their most remarkable gig of the year.
You could say it’s been a pretty triumphant year for Winchester native Frank Turner, with 2012 holding such accomplishments as selling out Wembley Arena as well as being chosen by Danny Boyle open up London’s Olympics Ceremony. With his last real run of dates around the UK being this exact time last year, it’s safe to say that Turner has been sorely missed by the UK after managing to sell out this tour.
