It’s time for Friday ticket releases again, with four music announcements to take you into the weekend. Each week, we share our selections with full lists of dates, times of sale and links to purchase. This week, we have British rock royalty, two anniversary tours, a pop rock ‘Best Of’ celebration, and the latest success story from the current musical hotspot of Wigan. Here are our picks this week…
Former Glastonbury headliners and British rock icons, Skunk Anansie have added an extra date to their huge 25th anniversary tour due to demand. The newly announced gig at Southampton Engine Rooms will take place on Sunday 26th June, with the whole tour now consisting of 19 dates starting at London’s O2 Academy Brixton this month. Tickets for the extra date go on sale today at 10am, with all other shows on sale now via https://skunkanansie.com/live-dates and www.gigandtours.com / www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
