It’s time for Friday ticket releases once again. This week, we have one of the pioneers of modern indie celebrating a debut album 20th anniversary, as well as noughties indie royalty, a Grammy award winner and one of the UK’s most hotly-tipped rising stars. Here are our picks this week…
The Libertines have announced four special dates for 2022, where they will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their seminal debut album, ‘Up the Bracket’.
