After a quiet week for ticket releases over the Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend, this week has more than made up for it. With plenty to choose from, we have narrowed down our four selections, including a 10 year album anniversary, a Scottish indie comeback, one of the UK’s best live bands, and the latest gig from BBC Music Introducing. Here are our choices with links, dates and times of sale…
His recent album, “Saturday Night, Sunday Morning” saw Jake Bugg make a sonic shift, with the likes of singles, “All I Need” and “Lost”.

With this in mind, Jake has announced a special hometown show at Nottingham Motorpoint Arena on November 26th, with general sale HERE at 10am.
