Micah Erenberg

Winnipeg-based indie rocker Micah Erenberg is in the midst of his first UK headline tour. After feeling the quality of his two latest singles - 'Do It For Love' and 'Somewhere Beyond The Ocean' - we couldn't recommend you get out to see this cathartic, natural born songwriter heavily enough. Melodically, he’s up there with the likes of Kevin Morby and Sparklehorse and he’s got such an impressively natural way with the electric guitar that he’s never in danger of aping his influences too heavily.

03 June - London, The Ned

Jason Lytle

Indie rock royalty Jason Lytle, the man best known as the principal songwriter and singer in Grandaddy, will be unmissable in the beautiful intimate environs of Bush Hall. Expect an intensely emotional vibe, especially given the recent death of his friend and Grandaddy bassist Kevin Garcia in 2017; the year they released our album of the year: Last Place.

03 June - London, Bush Hall

Guadalupe Plata

One of the best albums released this year so far comes from Spain's incredible psychedelic band Guadalupe Plata. Their reference points include - and certainly aren't limited to - Dr. John, ritual fiestas, Captain Beefheart, and John Lee Hooker. Take a plunge into one of the most batshit, extraordinary gigs you'll see this year.

06 June - London, Dingwalls

Noel Gallagher

Noel's on one of the most experimental periods of his career, with electronic influences and funk playing a role on his forthcoming EP Blackstar Dancing. At its heart, though is his distinguishable voice and gritty command of the electric guitar. Heaton Park's a classic venue for Noel and expect as it's where Oasis did three homecoming gigs on the trot. Expect a rowdy crowd with Doves and White Denim tasteful support. Razorlight and Neon Waltz support in Inverness.

07 June - Manchester, Heaton Park
08 June - Inverness, Bught Park

Muse

Muse are touring the Simulation Theory album and as with each album campaign the stage set up takes on a new, more adventurous turn. Currently you can expect to see dancers, a BMX stuntsman, a brass band, lasers, huge screens and a giant alien robot. And of course hard-hitting bangers such as 'Plug In Baby', 'Hysteria' and 'Knights of Cydonia' as they just did in London Stadium over the weekend.

05 June - Bristol, Ashton Gate
08 June - Manchester, Etihad Stadium
