BANG BANG ROMEO to support Pink on 2019 Europe…

Photo credit: Holly Rose

Bang Bang Romeo will be joining P!nk on her 2019 European tour!

Front-woman Stars has spoken of her excitement to hit the road with P!nk:
“I remember being stood in the kitchen with my Dad, singing Like A Pill at the top of my lungs when I was a kid. I remember being sat in the school cloakroom with one of my best friends singing Dear Mr President when I was in my teens. I remember singing Lady Marmalade on karaoke, the Moulin Rouge version on a night out with my friends after college at 18. Will I remember supporting one of my all-time heroes on her 2019 European tour with my band? You bet your life.”

Two more acts announced for ROADBURN 2019 as p…

Today (2nd October 2018) sees the reveal of two more acts for The Burning Darkness – Tomas Lindberg’s curated event at Roadburn 2019.

First to be announced is Anna Von Hausswolff: 

On his decision to invite her, Lindberg comments:

“Having had the pleasure of being an acquaintance of Anna through our mutual Gothenburg heritage she thankfully didn’t need much persuading to join the eclectic roster of my curation. I am very proud to be part of bringing this magical voice to the festival. Prepare yourself for a lot of goosebumps and chills down your collective spines. Let the dead magic embrace you in front of that main stage at 013.”

Also announced today is a special show by At The Gates:

The band comments:

“As many of our loyal listeners know we have always incorporated different elements into our own breed of death metal, but we have never taken the chance to explore them to the fullest on stage. Being invited to play the prestigious Roadburn Festival gives us exactly that opportunity. We know very well what is expected from a Roadburn performance, and it is just that sort of challenge that makes us tick.
“We will dive headfirst into the melancholic eclectic darkness of our back catalogue and explore different, challenging collaborations for this special At The Gates set. We look forward to this with overwhelming excitement. More details on exactly what will happen on that main stage at 013 will follow soon”

STEVE HACKETT announces 2019 tour

The irrepressible former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett announces his 2019 European Tour. Setting off on 2nd November 2019, Steve and his band will perform 20 shows around the UK.

For the first time ever, Steve will perform the seminal Genesis album Selling England By The Pound in its entirety. Released in 1973, the album went to No. 3 in the UK charts and has been described as ‘the definitive Genesis album.’ It includes firm favourites such as Dancing with the Moonlit Knight, Firth of Fifth, Cinema Show and, of course, I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe). Other favourite classic Genesis tracks will also feature in the show.

2019 also marks the 40th anniversary of one of Steve’s most popular solo albums Spectral Mornings and Steve will rightly celebrate this milestone by performing masterpieces from the album.
Fans will also be treated to highlights from Steve’s new album, to be released in 2019.
