+ Special Guests

Saturday 1st April

Academy 3

The Sex Pistols Experience are The Worlds No1 professional tribute to the most outrageous & controversial band of all time.! With a Worldwide reputation built from over 1,000+ performances. Having done extensive tours of the U.S.A (almost 100 U.S.A shows), toured throughout Europe, & Brazil South America, taking in cities from New York to Los Angeles, El Paso to Seattle, Sao Paulo, Rio, & Maringa, Berlin, Barcelona & Bradford(!) & everywhere in-between. So convincing is the live show that the BBC, Sky TV, Channel4, Fox TV have all hired this band for re-enactments in film & T.V documentaries as the Sex Pistols/Sid & Nancy.

'The Sex Pistols Experience' are the only band to of have also had the thumbs-up of approval from the original Sex pistols band. Whilst on tour in America they were invited as 'special guests' on 'Jonesy's Jukebox' - the acclaimed radio show of Pistols guitarist Steve Jones. Spending the afternoon being interviewed & playing a few Pistols favourites live on air together to million's of listeners throughout Los Angeles & across the Worldwide web!

They appeared with Glen Matlock at the Worlds only Pistols convention day in Liverpool Cavern Club in 2006. Then Granddaddy of Punk, & infamous leader 'Johnny (Rotten) Lydon' himself gave the seal of approval in 2008 at the Sex Pistols Hammersmith after show party in London when front men 'Johnny Rotter' & 'Johnny Rotten' finally came face to face with mutual respect shown all around... "Well good luck with it" - Lydon said as they parted. Sid Vicious’ guitarist ‘Steve Dior’ performed live with them on stage at the legendary 100 Club, & the band tour regularly with ‘Ed Tenpole Tudor’ star of the Sex Pistols movie ‘The Great’Rockn’Roll Swindle’.


Their show has perfected the look and sound down to every last detail as they sweat out every ounce of energy to make sure each concert is as dynamic, explosive, & exciting as the real deal. They have captured perfectly all the spirit & energy of the Sex Pistols at their blistering peak 1977 period, blended with the ability of the seasoned musicians of their later reformation tours.

A rare chance to hear all the classics live from one of the most influential albums of all time - 'Never Mind the Bollocks'. Ripping through gigs with rousing renditions of 'Pretty Vacant', 'God Save The Queen', 'Anarchy in the U.K', & 'Holidays in the Sun'. But also taking influence from 'The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle', & Sid's Vicious solo album 'Sid Sings'. No stone is left unturned with a few surprises, B sides & rarities thrown in the mix.


If you're a Sex Pistols fan, this then this is the only worthwhile alternative. See this band live and you’ll walk away wondering whether you were seeing & hearing things, Sid Vicious is still alive, Johnny Rotten is at his best, the spirit of '77 lives on, & the Swindle continues, you've just seen the The Sex pistols Experience.!

Lizzie and the Banshees are the UK's premier tribute to Siouxsie and the Banshees.
Performing all over the UK & Europe since forming in 2012 and the band have been touring ever since. The visual interpretation with their hit after hit Siouxsie and the Banshees show, succeeds perfectly in capturing the sound, look and feel of the Banshees.
Expect Spellbound, Christine, Dear Prudence, Hong Kong Garden, Happy House, Cities in Dust and many more....

'Give Me Your Future' Tour

Saturday 8th April

Academy 3

Space release the much anticipated new studio album  “Give me your Future” in May 2016 and embark on a new tour of the same name in April - June across the UK and Ireland.

The new album is being recorded and produced by Grammy and Brit award winning producer Steve Levine who has worked with The Clash, Culture Cub, Beach Boys, Deniece Williams and Gary Moore to name a few.

2015 was a good year for the band with Female of the Species making the top of the album charts with the “TFI Album” – (Number 1 in June 2015) Followed by the release of the “Strange World” single and the sold out 30 date UK tour of the same name..

Tommy said he was very proud of the Strange World single and the video shot by Mark McNulty, “it is a return to the true origins of the band, the tour has been mental with the whole audiences joining us on stage for the final encore of Female, just amazing nights with the fans, very special for me, for me its all about playing new music to new and old fans and playing them the hits”

The bands last album release was 'Attack Of The Mutant 50ft Kebab'- their first new album for nine years. Tommy's influence for the new songs stemmed from his infamous fascination with science and horror films, and he likens the album to a 'Fifties B-Movie' for the ears.
Proud to note how Space have always stood out from the 'normal,' Tommy concedes that their last album has the usual signature Space quirkiness, with some extra ingredients added to the mix - he describes the songs as a mish-mash of SKA, Punk and the classic Space sound. "When we tour, we love playing the old stuff, but I always knew I wanted to record some new material. We know the fans like to hear the old classics from our multi-million selling albums 'Spiders' and 'Tin Planet', but we wanted to give them something extra."

"The title track on the album is my favorite song from the record and is the story of how a fifty-foot kebab from a side street takeaway shop wreaks its revenge on the ailing high street. It's a message about survival in a tongue-in-cheek way. The first single from the album is a track called 'Fortune Teller' - keeping up with the mystic vibe!"

Space have sold over 2 million albums world wide with titles including “Spiders, “Tin Planet” “Suburban Rock and Roll” and “Attack of the Mutant 50ft Kebab” and also released 10 top 40 singles and host of other single releases to-date with titles including “Neighborhood” “Female of the Species”, “Me and You Vs. The World” “Avenging Angels” “Dark Clouds”, and “Begin Again” The band continue to write gritty edgy pop songs that captive the imagination of the listener, The band release the Album “Give me your future” in May 2016 followed by the Box Set to include the 5 released Albums plus the un-released  “Love you More Than Football”  in 2017.
