Kaiser Chiefs / February and March 2017 UK Tour

 
By on Friday, 19th August 2016 at 9:00 am
 

The next thing you know, Kaiser Chiefs will be releasing their newest album. ‘Stay Together’, their sixth, will be released on the 7th of October on Fiction Records / Caroline International. Following the album’s unveiling to the public, they will also be touring. They’ve just announced a new UK arena tour for February and March 2017. Tickets will go on sale next Friday, the 26th of August, at 9 AM.

They previously released LP single ‘Parachute’, which garnered mixed response from fans who were surprised – or energised – by their new, shinier pop direction. They’ve now revealed another single, ‘Hole in My Soul’, which you can listen to below the tour dates. For all of TGTF’s coverage on the Kaiser Chiefs, follow this link.

The Divine Comedy / October 2016 and February 2017 UK/Irish Tour

 
By on Wednesday, 1st June 2016 at 9:00 am
 

Following on from the initial announcement in May, The Divine Comedy has added on another London date to his previously announced UK and Irish tour for October 2016 and February 2017. The continuing solo project of legendary Northern Irish singer/songwriter Neil Hannon will be adding another album to its now massive back catalogue of work: on the 2nd of September, he will be releasing ‘Foreverland’, his first true Divine Comedy album since 2010’s ‘Bang Goes the Knighthood’. (Hannon has been busy with plenty of other things in the meantime, including co-penning the second album for the cricket-themed act The Duckworth Lewis Method; composed a choral work for the newly renovated organ in the Royal Festival Hall, entitled ‘To Our Fathers in Distress’; and oversaw the transfer of his musical Swallows And Amazons to the West End stage. ::cough, wheeze::)

Tickets to all the shows below are on sale but be forewarned, some of these venues are pretty small (I’m still shaking my head at Sheffield Foundry in particular), several dates are already sold out, and the first London Palladium date sold out in less than 48 hours. In other words, be quick!
