Jack White

Hot on the heels of announcing his new album 'Boarding House Reach'  and releasing the first single, 'Connected by Love', Jack White has unveiled two London headline dates to follow his huge American tour. 

'Boarding House Reach' sees Jack White expanding his musical palate with perhaps his most ambitious work thus far, a collection of songs that are simultaneously timeless and modern. The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain - crunching rock 'n' roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country - a testament to the breadth of Jack White's creative power and his bold artistic ambition. 

See Jack White live at Hammersmith Apollo, London on 27 - 28 June 2018. Tickets on sale Friday 26th at 10AM.

Super Bock Super Rock announce new artist!

Justice have just been announced to play at Super Bock Super Rock, the Lisbon-based summer sun and city break festival!

The Super Bock Super Rock line up is being completed in the best way for a forceful return to Parque das Nações in Lisbon on July 19, 20 and 21. After finishing the year with great confirmations for the 24th edition of the Festival such as The XX, Baxter Dury, Sevdaliza, Lee Fields & The Expressions, Slow J [PT] and Torres, the new year begins in the best way possible, with a very strong new announcement: Justice.

Justice are responsible for some of the best dance music of the 21st century. Their success began in 2006 with 'Never Be Alone', a remix of the British Simian Mobile Disco that conquered dance floors around the world. Whilst their latest, and third, album 'Woman' offers us a brighter record, closer to the funk of the 70s, as the beautiful 'Randy' proves.

 Super Bock Super Rock combines a stunning location alongside a solid live line-up, and with live music starting in the early evening, there is plenty of time for festival goers to explore all that Lisbon has to offer during the day.

Kaiser Chiefs announced for Live At Chelsea

Kaiser Chiefs have just been announced to perform at the Live At Chelsea Concert Series 2018! Set in the idyllic grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in West Londom, the group will headline the venue on Thursday 14th June 2018, as music fans across the capital will for the 4th year turn the grounds into one of the most unique live concert settings.

Their first album, 2005’s 'Employment', catapulted them to a Mercury Prize nomination and three Brit Awards with tracks like 'Everyday I Love You Less & Less' and 'I Predict A Riot', whilst follow-up 'Yours Truly, Angry Mob' went twice-platinum in the UK alone, bolstered by the success of the near ubiquitous and anthemic single 'Ruby'.

The band released their sixth studio album 'Stay Together' in 2016, adding a more dance-oriented sound to their pallet, rewarding the Kaiser Chiefs with yet another Top 10 UK album, as well as completing a sold-out UK arena tour where they proved they are still one of the most vibrant and energetic live bands in Britain.

Every year a portion of the ticket sales from the event is donated towards the care of the Chelsea Pensioners, as well as the maintenance of the Grade I listed site which has provided care and comradeship to ex-military personnel since 1682 when it was founded by King Charles II. 

Don't miss what will be a spectacular series of great live music events, with James Blunt announced to perform on the 16th, going to a great cause. Tickets on sale Friday at 10AM.
