Another bank holiday means another three day weekend and with the weather heating up there is plenty to do – from music festivals, food festivals to street parties galore. So, if you were planning on setting up camp on the sofa with some box sets, think again…
As always we like to suggest some of our favourite live music events, so here are our top recommendations for the weekend across the UK:
On Friday 22nd May, Irish musician Hozier will be playing the O2 Academy in Newcastle. His self-titled debut album was released just last year and was met with great success. If you’re an indie fan this is a gig not to be missed.
Take That are playing shows all weekend at the Manchester Arena as part of their Arena 2015 tour. With support from former X Factor contestant Ella Henderson this will be an incredible event. If you were a fan back in the 90s and are feeling a little nostalgic take yourself down to the Manchester Arena on either Friday, Saturday or Sunday night.
As part of his 70th birthday celebrations, guitarist legend Eric Clapton is playing a series of shows at the Royal Albert Hall one of which is taking place this weekend, on Saturday 23rd May. He will be performing with his band members; Paul Carrack, Michelle John, Chris Stainton, Sharon White, Nathan East and Steve Gadd and will no doubt wow his audience as he has done time and time again.
Former Beatles star is playing The London O2 on Saturday and Sunday night. It’s been more than 50 years since he started in the music business and Sir Paul McCartney is still putting on a great performance for all his fans. With his most recent single, fourfiveseconds, collaboration with Kayne West and Rhianna receiving rave reviews, he doesn’t seem to be fizzling out any time soon.
Foo Fighters, one of the world’s most popular rock acts are playing the Stadium of Light in Sunderland on Monday. You may not have the next day off work, but the Foo Fighter’s are sure to put on a performance not to be missed.
Let us know if you’re planning on attending any of these gigs, or any other gigs you’ve got lined up this weekend! Have a great bank holiday weekend!
