1. Cast – Faith
2. Rose Elinor Dougall – Hell and Back
3. London Grammar – Big Picture
4. Blondie – Fun
5. The 1975 – Chocolate
Been an interesting week for gig announcements. The 1975 will be playing Belsonic. That’ll do nicely. I know they’ll be at the tail end of a tour they’ve been doing for eighteen months, nut it’s a tour that hasn’t taken in Belfast or Northern Ireland so far, so it’ll be great to belatedly have them here.
Simple Minds announced KT Tunstall as support for their Waterfront Hall gig. Not that surprising, she is supporting them in Europe. The down side is that it’ll lessen the chances of KT Tunstall doing her own gig in Belfast this year.
I was planning on going to that but decided I couldn’t be bothered once it turned out to be an all seated gig. Anyway, i’ll be otherwise engaged, as i’m going to see Limmy at Mandela Hall that night.
Rose Elinor Dougall has announced a tour for April but there’s no Belfast gig. Got her album this week but haven’t got round to listening to it in full yet.
If you’re planning on going to Scotland this summer, TRNSMT line-up looks decent, especially the Saturday.
1. London Grammar – Devil Inside
2. Bastille – Pompeii
3. James – Laid
4. The Killers – Shot At The Night
5. Kaiser Chiefs – Modern Way
Well, what a week of concert announcements it has been. Where do you start?
Listened to the Tennent’s Vital announcement on Tuesday night. I was already excited when Bastille were announced, but when it was revealed that they would be supporting The Killers, that was just the topping on the cake.
For the first time in seven years (hopefully, being able to get a ticket permitting) i’ll be at Tennent’s Vital.
Meanwhile, Kaiser Chiefs have announced a gig for August in Falls Park. The date is inconvenient for me as I might not be in Belfast that night. Boo.
And finally, James are supporting Paloma Faith in Bray in July. Very tempting.
And before we go, this time next week, Belsonic’s line-up will be announced. Six days of pondering awaits. I’m hoping for Franz Ferdinand and/or Embrace.
I love this time of year when summer concerts are announced.
