Which bands have you bought tickets to see in 2018?

Postby BlackPaperCrown » Tue Aug 15, 2017 8:25 pm

Another year, another ray of hope
Single By Sunday (6th January at the O2 ABC, Glasgow). A really good and fun pop band with great songs and synchronised bouncing. What more could you ask for?

Goodness me, 2018 is busying up with the big names
The Stranglers (8th March at the O2 Academy, Glasgow). This has become an annual event for them. Each year they bring a very interesting support band. This time. it is Therapy?
The The (7th June at the Troxy, London). He (Matt Johnson) announced a comeback gig at The Royal Albert Hall and it sold out within seconds; well, the reasonably priced seats did - I was not paying £250 to go there. The Brixton Academy gig for the next day sold out too. So, another gig was announced at The Troxy and by the time I got around to looking for tickets, there was quite literally just the one ticket left. I snapped it up and so I go to see The The 28 years since the last time!

Lloyd Cole. Yarm Princess Alexandra Auditorium
Toyah. Yarm Princess Alexandra Auditorium
Elbow Leeds Arena
Arcade Fire. Manchester Arena

I'd write and tell you that I've burnt them all.

But you never send me your address and I've.

I've kept them anyway.

Well, here is a load more
The Skids (10th January & 11th January at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow). They are seriously great live
Alvvays (18th February at the O2 ABC, Glasgow). I thought they were a one-trick-pony but their new stuff is better than their debut stuff
Imagine Dragons (4th March at the SSE Hydro (bleugh), Glasgow). It is a soul-less venue but Imagine Dragons can fill it
Paloma Faith (6th March at the SSE Hydro (bleugh again), Glasgow). Twice in three nights at that venue, but needs must ...

I cannot believe it - a first time see
Tears For Fears (7th May at the Armadillo, Glasgow). I have never seen them live before, mainly because they play live so rarely in the UK
Tears For Fears (12th May at the Centre, Brighton). Making the most of this chance

I have my 2 shows for OMD purchased, and on Thursday I'm going to be buying tickets for Jukebox the Ghost who are doing a very small gig at the Echo in January! I will have to be quick to snag those tickets.
I dance about ships and airplanes.

Okay, some more, including one which is still 11 months away!
BooHooHoo (12th January at King Tut's, Glasgow) I actually think I am their biggest fan. 18 gigs and counting
Le Thug (20th January at King Tut's, Glasgow) shoegazing at its very best
Annie Booth and Sister John (28th January at The Hug And Pint, Glasgow) a double bill at a lovely small venue
Lola In Slacks (9th February at the CCA, Glasgow) they do sound like a band that our very own Amhilde would like!
Drab Majesty (13th February at Broadest, Glasgow) talking of Amhilde, this is her recommendation
Nerina Pallot (10 April in Edinburgh and 13th April in Newcastle) she is so good live and she has not played in Edinburgh for 7 years!
Let's Rock Scotland (23rd June in Dalkeith near Edinburgh) an 80s fest with the usual suspects but all great fun
Stillmarillion (19th October at the Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh) celebrating 35 years of Script For A Jester's Tear. All together now "So here I am once more ..."

2018 is soon, very soon
The Shores (5th January at O2 ABC, Glasgow) a good new band
Night Riots (9th January at O2 Academy, Glasgow) doing a support slot but worth seeing at any available chance
Rachel Sermanni (26th January at Summerhall, Edinburgh) my wee pal
The Ninth Wave (29th January at Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh) a band to watch out for
WHITE (2nd February at Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh) you know what I am like about WHITE.
Rebecca Loebe (11th March at The Glad Cafe, Glasgow) amazing tunes and amazing lyrics. She is SO good
Dream Wife (23rd March at Stereo, Glasgow) such a great live band
We Are Not DEVO (24th March at Nice 'N' Sleazy's, Glasgow) a tribute band - I wonder if they are as good as the real thing?
Kim Wilde (2nd April at The Old Fruitmarket, Glasgow) she is touring her new album. I cannot wait!
Annie Booth and Zoe Bestel (21st April at The Hug And Pint, Glasgow) Zoe releasing her new album. Annie is unmissable
Annie Booth and Zoe Bestel (4th May at the Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh) I told you!
I think that is enough for now

This one gig warrants announcement on its own
Katrina (3rd February at The Half Moon, Putney - that's in London) yes, she of Katrina And The Waves playing a load of hits, some of her own music and generally having a great time celebrating Independent Venue Week. This will be a very special gig and is my first time see

A few more, mainly concentrating on the bands you have heard of
Night Riots (4th April at King Tut's Glasgow) I normally go to see them as a support act because they are that good. This is a headline tour
Misterwives (8th April at King Tut's Glasgow) an amazing fun band. Miss this rare UK tour at your peril
Fischer-Z (1st May 8th April at O2 ABC Glasgow) yes, he is back again
REO Speedwagon supported by Chicago (16th June in Irvine, CA) well, why not?
OMD and Heaven 17 (21st & 2nd June at Rewind, Perth) because it is OMD!
Paloma Faith (18th August at Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh) because it is Paloma Faith
Def Leppard supported by Cheap Trick (11th December at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow) yes, it does take a good band to make me attend that venue
Is that enough for now or do you want the local bands too?
