Queen Extravaganza
With the country currently in the grips of Queen fever – the band’s current UK tour with singer Adam Lambert is one of the year’s fastest selling – fans of their music will no doubt be thrilled to learn that there will be another chance to hear Queen’s greatest hits performed live when the Queen Extravaganza, the ‘official’ tribute band created by Roger Taylor and Brian May, returns to the UK for a further series of shows next year.

These dates follow the band’s 2015 and 2016 sold out UK tours which celebrated the 40th anniversary of Queen’s iconic album, A Night At The Opera. The tour culminated with a headlining show at the legendary Hammersmith Apollo in London, a venue once played by Queen themselves in the 1970s.
The Queen Extravaganza – described by Roger Taylor himself as "a rock celebration in the Royal tradition" and designed to enable new fans together with fans of old to celebrate the music of Queen - will play sixteen shows across England and Scotland beginning the end of October 2018 in Edinburgh with the tour winding up in London on November 22.

The 2018 shows will be billed as the ‘Queen’s Greatest Hits Tour’ with the promise to deliver all the hits any Queen fan could want to hear - Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites the Dust, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Under Pressure, We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions, A Kind of Magic, Radio Ga Ga and Killer Queen – just a few to mention - presented 100 per cent live by some of today’s finest musicians hand picked by Roger Taylor and Brian May.

Announcing the dates, Brian May said: “Queen aficionados! This may be your only chance to see ALL of Queen’s greatest hits performed immaculately – live!”

“These guys are incredibly talented, with their scintillatingly perfect recreation of our songs,” says Taylor.

Now headed for their sixth visit to the UK, the Queen Extravaganza has already played over 160 dates across the world and made appearances on TV shows such as American Idol where the performance was seen by over 20 million people.

Scott Bradlee’s Post Modern Jukebox

Postmodern Jukebox is back.... back in Black & White! The band’s non-stop throwback carnival is on the road again with their Back in Black & White Tour. PMJ has always been about using modern media to turn back the clock to a time we always imagine in shades of black and white - simpler, more carefree, without so many mind-boggling devices and distractions, every one streaming in hi-def at any hour of the day! Of course, live entertainment was always live and in vibrant colour, so PMJ offers fans the best of both worlds.

PMJ shows bring a full band of gifted musicians, with a cast of favourite singers and tons of surprises, to a city near you. As any PMJ fan can tell you, the experience is never the same twice, with new songs and shifting combinations of members giving a unique twist to every show. PMJ looks forward to bringing their unique spin on modern pop hits and retro pop stylings to new cities for the first time, while revisiting favourite haunts that feel more like home each time around.

The multi-talented collective reimagines contemporary pop, rock and R&B hits in the style of various yesteryears, from swing to doo-wop, ragtime to Motown – or, as creator Scott Bradlee himself puts it, “pop music in a time machine.” Started by Bradlee in 2009, PMJ has gone on to amass more than 950 million YouTube views with 3.3 million subscribers, and have chalked up more than 1.5 million likes on Facebook. The band has performed on Good Morning America, topped iTunes and Billboard charts, caught the attention of NPR Music and NBC News, and played hundreds of shows to sold-out houses around the world.

For those who only know PMJ from their time-warping videos, the live show is an experience on a whole other level. It’s a roaring 20s party that would make the Great Gatsby proud, mixed with a swinging 60s night with the Rat Pack, spiced up with a little Motor City soul and some classic sock hop rockin’ that gets the audiences twisting or twerking the night away - depending on what era their mood is in. A Postmodern Jukebox tour is a unique blend of talents and personalities that makes for a show that’s always entertaining and consistently fresh and exciting.

"Surprises, an abundance of talent, fun, variety, glamour, laughter and its one great big ball of fun. This is a PMJ show and they love every second that they get to shine. PMJ are a wonderful collection of musicians and performers, who show what real talent is all about." Entertainment Focus

"Saucy, sassy, stylish, and a with steady slew of some of the biggest pop songs in recent memory, a night out with Scott Bradlee and his cadre of musical powerhouses spells just one thing - a guaranteed party." MTV

Thunder

PLEASE REMAIN SEATED

Thunder
will release their brand new studio album Please Remain Seated on 18 January 2019 through BMG. The album, released as the band enter their third decade, is a collection of radically reworked versions of songs from throughout their extensive catalogue. This album will raise eyebrows, hackles and heartbeats in equal measure. Please Remain Seated is the sound of a band taking a strange journey into their own music, but also distilling thirty years of playing together in order to create something truly compelling, taking in flavours of rock, blues, jazz and soul along the way. The album has been mastered at half speed for dynamic range. The band will tour Please Remain Seated across the UK in February 2019.

Danny Bowes said: “We’ve never been the kind of band that wanted to make the same album over and over, and we’ve never been scared to try new things. In fact, making Thunder music over the past 30 years has taught us that the more we challenge ourselves, the better we get. Having re-imagined and re-recorded Love Walked In in 2017, we were very stimulated by the process, and wanted to try it on other songs. We made it as live as possible, jamming ideas until we found an arrangement that felt good. We set ourselves three rules: work fast, don’t aim for perfection, and make it different to the original. Some songs fell together spontaneously, and some took a series of strange left turns before ending up in a place none of us predicted."

"By shaking up old tunes in this way, we forced ourselves to rethink how we felt about them. We think it’ll probably be the same for fans when they hear them. It’s not supposed to be a ‘Best Of’, and it’s not a change of direction, it’s just another brief stop along the journey to where we’re heading (wherever that is). We really like it, and we hope others will too."

Since forming in 1989, Thunder have notched up 20 top 50 singles, two gold albums, and cultivated a reputation as consummate live performers. Their last album – 2017s Rip It Up – hit number three in the UK album charts, giving the band their highest chart placing in 22 years. Please Remain Seated is the result of all those miles on the clock and represents the sound of a band having fun. The smiles on their faces are almost audible, and the occasional bit of inter-band banter that made the final cut just underlines the d’esprit de corps that has always been there with Thunder. Half of the tracks feature additional musicians who’ve performed at the famed Christmas shows and there’s even a choir on one track!

Please Remain Seated may be a quieter album – the delicate sound of Thunder if you will! – but this collection underlines the strength of the songwriting and musicianship, and it also proves that great (even unexpected) things can happen when a band is prepared to step out of its comfort zone and challenge itself, even after 30 years.

An Evening With Alfie Boe

One of the world's greatest classical singers Alfie Boe brings it back to the UK, announcing a 2019 tour in what is becoming another landmark year for the much loved tenor. Last month, Alfie revealed his return to the solo spotlight with the release of his vibrant and instantly classic album As Time Goes By.

The record, released in November, celebrates the golden era of music from the 30s and 40s, a time that is often overlooked - sandwiched as it is between the roaring twenties and rock 'n' roll.

Alfie is one of the best-loved vocalists of his generation and a hugely successful, multi-platinum selling artist. He has triumphed on theatre stages and in concert halls around the world and has two recent UK #1 albums under his belt for albums Together and Together Again, made with his great friend Michael Ball. The duo also won two Classic BRIT Awards earlier this year for Best Album and Group of the Year.

"I'm excited to get back on the road, especially with a new record that I'm so proud of. These songs are at their best when performed live!" says Alfie.

He adds, "We'll be enjoying some of great songs from my previous records, but I more than anything want to bring back to life an era when British audiences discovered a brand new kind of American music, full of energy, optimism and romance. I'd like to transport people to a time in their lives, a moment or even a style. I hope you all enjoy being transported there as much as I do!"

UB40

As part of their 40th anniversary celebrations, Britain’s world-famous reggae band UB40 will release their first new studio album in five years in September 2018, before embarking on an extensive nationwide 40-date UK tour in 2019.

Titled ‘For The Many’, the new album will be the Birmingham reggae veterans’ nineteenth studio album, featuring UB40 founder members Robin Campbell (co-vocals/Guitar), Brian Travers (saxophone/keyboards), Jimmy Brown (drums), Earl Falconer (bass/keyboards/vocals) and Norman Hassan (percussion/vocals), and long-time members Duncan Campbell (vocals), Martin Meredith (saxophone), Laurence Parry (trumpet) and Tony Mullings (keyboards).

Singer Duncan Campbell said, “After ten years of fronting UB40, for us to do an album of our own original material feels like this is the final hurdle for me. The album and its title reflect how UB40 are all in support of Jeremy Corbyn. Both of the songs I have written on the album also reflect this support of The Labour Party. We all feel this album is an album going back to what UB40 was all about. We are all excited for everybody to hear the album and looking forward to touring it.”

Co-vocalist and guitarist Robin Campbell added, For The Many is a great mix of reggae styles, while the different artists we have collaborated with will appeal to more fans and tastes in reggae - it really is an album for the many. The 2019 UK tour is a continuation of our 40th year celebrations, as well as sharing tracks from our latest album. Forty dates around the UK instead of a few arenas means that our fans from all over the UK can get to see us much more locally and up close - truly a tour for the many.”
 
UB40 formed in 1978, naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, before releasing their debut album Signing Off in August 1980 – considered by many to be one of the greatest reggae albums ever released by a British band.

It was the start of a career that has since seen UB40 have forty UK Top 40 hit singles and - with sales of over 100 million records – seen their albums reside in the UK’s Top 75 album chart for a combined period of eleven years, making UB40 one of the most successful British groups of all-time.

UB40 will showcase songs from For The Many alongside many of their seventeen UK Top 10 hit singles, including Kingston Town, Food For Thought, One In Ten, I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You, Don’t Break My Heart and Sing Our Own Song and, of course, Red, Red Wine, amongst other fan favourites.

Transform, Howard’s first release since 2015’s multi-media album Engage is scheduled for May 2019 and sees Howard returning to his electronic pop roots. "It’s been a long time since I have made an album full of electronic based pop tunes, I know it’s the record many of my fans have been waiting patiently for." On at least two of the new songs Howard is collaborating with the electronic US producer BT. "I have been a huge fan of BT’s for many years,’ comments Howard ‘we finally met and have been working and developing two new songs which I am really excited about, he is beyond doubt one of the most gifted electronic musicians out there."

Howard is in some of the best live form of his life, 2018 was packed with 50 headline US shows and a summer of festival appearances. On presenting the new show Howard promises that he will be "bringing a lot of synths" and that ticket holders are in store for both a "sonic and visual feast."

Quadrophenia The Album Live

“Brilliant, a triumph for rock history. Well deserved standing ovation at the end.” Bedford Today

“This is serious stuff, the orchestration is sublime.” Evening Standard

Produced by Concept Concerts this production, acclaimed by a Sunday Times journalist as “mighty, moving and unstoppable,” sees eight-piece band, The Goldhawks, deliver a stunning live performance of The Who’s smash hit concept album, Quadrophenia. From the very first show it has received standing ovations.

Released over 40 years ago in October 1973, The Who’s second rock opera was Pete Townshend’s homage to a pivotal moment in British youth culture. The album tells the story of Jimmy, a Mod, by chronicling his dissatisfaction with life, work, love, home, and family life. It served as an ode to teenage angst and counterculture rebellion, as well as a criticism of the British class, economic and educational systems - but you don't need to be clued up on the history of the Mods and Rockers to enjoy this show. At its core, Quadrophenia, which peaked at number two on the UK and USA charts, is just about teenage confusion, conflict and frustration.

Backed with exciting, and sometimes heart-wrenching, large-screen projection of archival footage, the emotions, tension and raw power that the music demands is delivered masterfully by the fabulous, charismatic band, The Goldhawks, with amazing replication of The Who’s sound.

To send you home on an even bigger high there are a few all-time classic Who hits to close the show!

"Absolutely first class.....Having toured with The Who for 10 years I can safely say that this band is the next best thing and the closest you will ever get to the real thing." Wolfy Foxlow, close friend of Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey
