Unmissable Gigs

by Abbie Franks |

It's usually the case that after a busy summer of festivals you return home with rather empty pockets, ready to prepare yourself for the mass of gig announcements that are about to come your way. This year has not only been a mint year for festivals, but we've been lucky enough to have massive album releases, comeback shows and huge tours. In light of this we've listed some gigs below running from November right through into 2018, which we think you'd be crazy to miss.

James have recently announced that they will be hosting ‘An Evening with James in Aid of the Manchester Emergency Fund’. The intimate Christmas gig will take place on December 18th at Albert Hall Manchester, and it’s one to get down for as they ‘intend to make it a memorable night’. With all net proceedings from ticket sales going to the ‘We Love Manchester Emergency Fund’, it’s a great way to kick off Christmas and pay tribute to those bereaved families and victims of the May 2017 attack. The gig is currently sold out, so again it’s worth a look on websites such as Twickets to grab one before the date.
