MILOS The Voice of the Guitar

This concert is a journey through music and time. It uses the classical guitar and its unique voice as a vehicle, showcasing a full range of colours and influences, through the works and musicians that defined it.

Whilst the names of some of the composers in this programme may be unfamiliar, the music itself will often be much better known. More familiar composers will reflect Miloš’s classical training at the Royal Academy of Music, whilst other pieces will showcase the link to his early training in Montenegro and his interest in the guitar as an instrument that is an intrinsic part of the Mediterranean environment he grew up in.

In those early days, Andres Segovia was a particular influence on Miloš and the latter part of the programme demonstrates his subsequent devotion to the music of Latin America and the expansion of the technical and expressive qualities of the instrument.

Concluding the programme, Miloš showcases his latest project with the music of The Beatles.

Keane

After months of speculation, Keane, one of Britain’s most beloved bands are back with a brand new album out September 20th on Island Records and featuring the powerful first single ‘The Way I Feel’.

Written by Keane and produced by David Kosten and the band themselves, ‘Cause and Effect’ features 11 new songs recorded in London and Sussex.

Keane have also announced a major UK tour this autumn including two nights at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall. The band will play a series of festivals this summer including BST in Hyde Park on July 14th.

‘Cause and Effect’ is Keane’s 5th studio album. Their 4 previous albums have all entered the UK charts at number 1 and accumulated sales of over 13m worldwide and 2.6 billion streams.

The birth of this new album came as something of a surprise even to the band. Singer Tom Chaplin had released two successful solo albums but missed his old sparring partner Tim Rice-Oxley. “I found myself wondering how I had come to let this very enigmatic and important relationship in my life drift,” Tom says.

Meanwhile Tim found his life falling apart and from the ashes had written an album’s worth of incredibly personal songs fuelled by humour as well as pain. When Tom, bassist Jesse Quin and drummer Richard Hughes heard the songs, they were immediately drawn to them both sonically and lyrically.

“Hopes and Fears was a break-up album too, but it was about a break-up when I was 19,” Tim explains. “It’s a bit different when you’re older and you’ve got kids – your whole little world shifts on its axis.”

The Glenn Miller Orchestra
Ray's in the mood, as the world’s greatest big band transports you back to the heady days and music of the 1940s, with the fabulous harmonies of the Moonlight Serenaders and the sublime vocals of Catherine Sykes and Mark Porter.

We are also proud to present, with the sounds of the Andrews Sisters, the Polka Dot Dolls.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of Glenn Miller’s arrival in UK with his Army Air Force band to support the troops in the Allied Invasion of Northwest Europe. He played around 80 concerts and broadcasts including, famously, a sell-out concert at the De Montfort Hall on 11th September, 1944.

The Glenn Miller band played for 4000 men of the US 82nd Airborne Division prior to their deployment the following Sunday in The Arnhem Operation. There is a memorial to the 82nd Airborne Division in Victoria Park as they were based in Evington.

Sadly, Glenn Miller disappeared on a flight to Paris just three months later.

The current UK orchestra was formed by Ray McVay in 1988 under licence from the Glenn Miller Estate. It has exactly the same line-up as Glenn’s original band, five saxes, four trumpets, four trombones and three rhythm plus male and female vocalists. It’s as near to the original sound as you can possibly get!

We’re proud to say we’ve already played the 75th anniversary of the Dambusters last year.

The show features classics like, In the Mood, Moonlight Serenade, American Patrol, Little Brown Jug, Tuxedo Junction and the song that became pop history’s first gold disc, Chattanooga Choo Choo!

Audiences of all ages will be thrilled by the sound of this amazing Big Band.

Midge Ure

Brought to life by Midge Ure and Band Electronica, this is the very first time in the 40 years since it was made that the Vienna album will be performed in its entirety. It is also the first time that many of the songs from the debut Visage album will be played live.

At the end of the 1970s momentous change was afoot in Britain and the world – in society, politics, fashion and culture – and the musical landscape was also about to change forever. The guitar-driven dominance that had propelled rock and punk throughout the decade was about to end, as synthesizers signalled the sound of the future and video transformed the look of the pop charts. The 1980s were about to explode into life and nothing would be the same again.

At the heart of this seismic leap into a futuristic new dawn were two records that set the template for much of what was to follow. Visage’s single Fade To Grey from the band’s debut eponymous album and Ultravox’s single Vienna from the album of the same name were global hits that shared the same stark ambience, European aesthetic and electronic heart. The albums that birthed those landmark singles expanded that sonic palette even further and brought the art-school alternative into the very centre of the mainstream.

Both records were co-written, recorded and produced by one of the leading characters in British music, Midge Ure, and not only transformed the charts around the globe but his life in the process.

"Autumn 1979 was a pivotal point in my career trajectory" Midge Ure explains. "Over the previous two years I had grown from pop band (Slik) to post punk band (The Rich Kids) to being a stand in guitarist for Thin Lizzy. Over the course of autumn into winter 1979, while working on the Visage project with Billy Currie, I was invited to join Ultravox. The work we did that winter on the Vienna album was an exhilarating rush of creativity the likes of which I had never experienced before.

"Forty years later I want to celebrate this period and as we pass from 2019 into 2020 play the Vienna album in its entirety along with highlights from the eponymous Visage album. Join me and my Band Electronica celebrating the year of release for both the Vienna and Visage albums...1980."

Four decades on, as we come towards the end of another turbulent decade, momentous change is once again afoot in Britain and the world. Can we face the next decade with the optimism and futuristic brightness that flooded the 1980s, and will there be a new cultural birth that will change music, fashion and society?

The 1980 Tour reminds us that these things are possible. Both Vienna and Visage were the sound of the future… and yet still sound unearthly, romantic, impossibly beautiful and full of promise.

The music will be performed in a stage setting designed to reflect the atmosphere and ambience the albums deserve.

Squeeze Plus Special Guests Heaven 17

Squeeze have announced their brand new tour The Difford And Tilbrook Songbook 2019, which will see the South-London legends play their extensive list of hits as well as some rare, lesser known gems from their back catalogue and solo careers.

"I am over the moon to be announcing the 2019 tour with Squeeze", says Glenn Tilbrook. "We’ve had something of a renaissance in the last few years, and look forward to this continuing, as we will play a set of songs that are both new, contemporary and as innovative as people have come to expect from us, along with the old beauties. I’m also excited to have Heaven 17 with us, what an extraordinary time we will have!"

With two critically acclaimed albums in the past three years, and a live show that has seen them headline numerous festivals in the UK (as well as sell their own sold out shows across the country), "something of a renaissance" seems like an understatement. Ever hardworking, the band will be bringing their scintillating live performances to adoring UK fans again in 2019, treating them to not just the hits, but also rarities that span their 45 year career both as Squeeze and solo artists. The incredible reviews of their 2017 tour speak for themselves.

Chris Difford adds "I feel excited about the tour. It’s a great band full of dedicated, hardworking, passionate people and we have a fabulous catalogue of songs to dip in and out of, so I feel completely blessed. I can’t wait to strap on the electric guitar again and sing the songs that got me where I am today.”

Lauded as a song writing duo, Difford and Tilbrook have been compared to Lennon and McCartney since their first release in 1978, Take Me I’m Yours, which blasted Squeeze into the forefront of the UK music scene.

Following up with hits such as Cool For Cats, Up The Junction, Goodbye Girl, Pulling Mussels From The Shell, Tempted, and so many more, Squeeze established themselves as not just a passing footnote in New Wave history, but as an important and vital part of quintessential British music. These hits also established Difford and Tilbrook as some of the most prolific writers of their time, with both amassing a wealth of melody rich earworms over the past four decades, both as Squeeze and also in their solo work too.

The Difford and Tilbrook Songbook 2019 is a tour that will capture the works of two of the most talented songsmiths working today.

The tour will aim to raise food, funds and awareness for the Trussell Trust network of food banks. At all venues there will be multiple food drop points and collection boxes, where audiences can donate non-perishable food or money. Food donated at the venues will be collected and distributed to the nearest Trussell Trust food bank. Food banks provide a minimum of three-days’ nutritionally balanced, non-perishable tinned and dried foods that have been donated by the local community. A list of items in a typical food parcel are: cereal, soup, pasta, rice, tinned tomatoes/pasta sauce, lentils, beans and pulses, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, tea/coffee, tinned fruit, biscuits, UHT milk and fruit juice.

"Anyone who experiences them will know this band remains essential for all the same reasons they always were." **** The Scotsman

"Now is the time to use ‘national’ and ‘treasure’ and now is the time to see Squeeze live." ***** Buzz Magazine

"Squeeze raise the roof!" Live review, The Sun

"Difford and Tilbrook deliver a rousing reminder of their talent for tuneful and touching glimpses of everyday life. ****" Live review, The Guardian"A stunning evening supplied by quite a stunning band." ***** Live Review, The Western Mail

"Squeeze are deserved national treasures and remain the provider of one of the finest evening’s musical entertainment you can find." Northern Echo, Live Review

Oysterband and June Tabor Fire and Fleet Tour

One of the most exciting collaborations in folk music, Oysterband and June Tabor, resumes this autumn for a major tour. With separate distinguished careers to pursue, their appearances together are necessarily rare, so this is a must-see opportunity to catch them live.

The majesty and control of June’s voice combine with the passion of John Jones’ singing and the dynamic drive of Oysterband to illuminate dark traditional ballads and contemporary classics alike - witness their moving duet version of Joy Division’s Love Will Tear Us Apart, widely regarded as the best-ever reinterpretation of that much-covered track. Songs from their seminal 1990 album Freedom and Rain and their multi-award-winning 2011 follow-up Ragged Kingdom will of course be featured, plus exciting new material.

"...a marriage made in heaven." Rolling Stone

"If you can’t appreciate June Tabor, you should just stop listening to music." Elvis Costello

The Australian Pink Floyd

Having sold over four million tickets in 35 countries, The Australian Pink Floyd Show is rightfully hailed as one of the leading concert performances currently operating. The Times described them as “The Gold Standard”. This act is so good they were even engaged by David Gilmour to perform at his 50th birthday celebration!

Forming in 1988, the band began their venture as a part of the wave of Australian tribute bands that included Bjorn Again and The Australian Doors to arrive in the UK in the early 1990s. In 1993, The Australian Pink Floyd Show performed at the first international Pink Floyd fan convention organised in conjunction with Brain Damage, the Pink Floyd fan magazine, at Wembley Convention Centre. Throughout the 1990s, the band played predominantly in the UK, gradually refining their show and developing a solid reputation on the live music circuit.

The following decade saw the band playing bigger and more prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall in 2003. In 2004 the band embarked on its arena tour in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, a tour that took the band on to its first major European and North American tours. The band continued to perform worldwide and has played to sell out audiences throughout Europe, UK, America, Canada, South America, Israel and Russia.

Over the following years the band has continued to cement its reputation, releasing several live concert DVDs and CDs and playing at major European festivals. Its first appearance in Malta became a national event with 15,000 people in attendance – even the Maltese prime minister came to meet the band backstage.

In 2010, TAPFS became even more ambitious and were the first band in the world to tour with a stereoscopic 3D projection show. Striving to reproduce the Pink Floyd experience and bring the music to new audiences, the show continues to include a stunning light and laser show, video animations, filmed sequences on a large circular LED screen and other special effects. To accompany these visuals are several large inflatables including a giant pig and their own distinct Pink Kangaroo.

The band has played with other musicians over the years who have performed with Pink Floyd – including Guy Pratt, Durga McBroom and her sister Lorelei McBroom (who is now a regular member of the current TAPFS line-up). The band have often used the services of long time friend and respected sound engineer, Colin Norfield, who also worked with Pink Floyd during their Division Bell tour of the early nineties and with David Gilmour on his solo tours.

In 2013 the band toured with a new show that celebrated the 40th anniversary of The Dark Side of the Moon and released another live DVD, CD and BluRay (Eclipsed by the Moon) whilst continuing to develop new ideas for the show to the delight of its fans worldwide.

Fisherman's Friends

The film about their incredible story has taken the box office by storm, already grossing $10 million in the UK alone. An outstanding achievement for a British independent film.

Fisherman’s Friends is a small film with a big heart. The movie tells the remarkable story of The Fisherman’s Friends, the original ‘buoy band’ bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience, who for 40 years have met on the harbour wall of their home fishing village on the north coast of Cornwall to sing the songs of the sea. It stars Daniel Mays, James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton and Noel Clarke with cameo appearances from the group whose voices also appear on the soundtrack.

A decade ago they were persuaded to sign the million-pound record deal that saw their album Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends go Gold as they became the first ever traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album. Since then they have released four more best selling albums of shanties, sang at HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, played Glastonbury festival and been honoured with the Good Tradition Award at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

What’s more, in an incredible twist of fate, Pete Hicks who appears in the on-screen Fisherman’s Friends has now joined the actual line up and will be out on tour with the boys this autumn.

“Singing live is what we’re all about, it’s why we started the group in the first place,” says MC and bass man Jon Cleave, instantly recognisable from his extravagant moustaches.

“The film has been a wonderful and is something we can all be very proud of, but we’re itching to get back on the road, renew some old friendships and make lots of new ones as well.”

Released alongside the Fisherman’s Friends film, the group’s latest album Keep Hauling album features 17 sea shanties – some old, some new and some slighty blue.

Cornwall’s best-known musical export, the Fisherman’s Friends have also been the subject of an ITV documentary, released the hit albums One and All (2013), Proper Job (2015) and Sole Mates (2018) and every year play to tens of thousands of fans at home and abroad.

The Fisherman’s Friends are: fisher brothers John and Jeremy Brown; writer/shopkeeper Jon Cleave; smallholder and engineer John ‘Lefty’ Lethbridge; builder John McDonnell (a Yorkshireman who visited Port Isaac more than 30 years ago and never left); Padstow fisherman Jason Nicholas; film maker Toby Lobb and the new boy, former ambulance driver Pete Hicks.

On 12 September, Nick Mason was named Prog Magazine’s Prog God at the prestigious Progressive Music Awards at the Shakespeares Globe Theatre, previous recipients include Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, Ian Anderson, Carl Palmer and Steve Howe.

"This was the most extraordinary and joyous show, a reminder of what a peculiar and brilliant band Pink Floyd were... If you have the slightest interest in Pink Floyd, do not miss this group… You won’t even need acid to blow your mind." ***** Michael Hann, Financial Times

"The sound was immense, electrifying, galvanising, mesmerising and still deeply strange, bending the formats of primal rock into all kind of weird and wonderful shapes.... it was a set of such startling intensity it seemed to mock the very notion of nostalgia. It was enough to make you wonder whether rock has progressed very far at all since the Sixties." **** Neil McCormick, The Daily Telegraph

"This show with him (Nick Mason) at its centre, is a fantastic voyage of rediscovery." **** David Bennun, Metro

Status Quo

AEG Presents are delighted to announce that Britain’s best-loved rockers Status Quo are following on from their triumphant Hyde Park‘Radio 2 Live show and coming back to reclaim their position on the live circuit – with the Backbone UK Winter Tour in 2020. Quo will be performing hits from across their five decade career, and of course the latest hit album Backbone which has just charted at no.6 in the UK. It is the highest charting album of new material for 37 years since 1+9+8+2 in 1982. Hitting seven venues across the country in November and December 2020, this tour sees the band’s return to UK stages, as part of a major European tour, after largely taking a break in 2019.

If the Backbone tour represents the return of the quintessential live rock act, then the Backbone album itself marks something of a new dawn. These live dates will feature a brand new set including all the classics but also songs from the first album not to feature the late great Rick Parfitt; some being played live for the first time ever, Backbone demonstrates a refocusing and a sharpening of the creative edge. Francis Rossi said, "The pressure was on: this set of new songs had to be strong enough to take their place in that amazing catalogue of Quo classics. With songs like Liberty Lane and Backbone already road tested at massive shows in Hyde Park and on the Lynryd Skynryd tour, there’s no doubt that the new material stands up! We can’t wait to get back on the road in the UK."

The album was described by Classic Rock as a strong, upbeat Quo record, which adds to their legacy and by Powerplay as an essential addition to any right-thinking Quo fan’s collection. Francis Rossi said, "We’ve been away from the UK live circuit for a little while and we’ve missed it, and we’ve missed the fans. The Backbone album got such a great reception, people really understand what we are trying to do and the fans have really supported it. We can’t wait to get out there in 2020 on a proper Status Quo tour and play all the classics, plus some of these new songs for the first time."
