Whether you’re up for the foot-stomping folk beat of Mumford and Sons, the graveled Scottish tones of Rod Stewart, or the sparkling vocals of Rihanna, The UK has something for everyone this summer.  But good luck trying to get those last minute tickets, these acts sell out faster than you can blink!


Mumford and Sons – Gentleman of the Road Stopover Tour

For dates and tickets:

Based on the bands’ experiences at their favourite festivals, M&S wanted to stop off in towns not usually heavily toured by bands and make a point of celebrating the local food and culture in each.  “We’re keen to promote the town’s local businesses, and we’ll be using the local bars and venues for aftershow parties, whilst working closely with the local people to get everyone involved in making these shows spectacular.”

What to expect: Hits from the Grammy Award winning album: Babel and rosy-cheeked merriment from cider-infused concert goers


Kings Of Leon

For dates and tickets:

This tour from the ‘Sex On Fire’ 4 piece will be the Kings of Leon’s first return to the live stage in the UK since frontman Caleb Followill stormed off stage at a gig in Dallas last year (subsequently, the rest of the tour was cancelled).

What to expect: A showcase of new material as the band have a new album coming out in September of this year.


Rihanna – Diamonds Tour

For dates and tickets:

The Diamonds World Tour will bring Rihanna’s seventh studio album Unapologetic to the live stage. The Barbadian’s 5th world tour has impressed the critics and writing for Billboard magazine, Mick Stingley felt that Rihanna “shined” during her performance saying: “Her interplay with her dancers and her longtime band leader Nuno Bettencourt (of the rock band Extreme), was a treat”.

What to expect: High fashion and high theatrics.


Robbie Wiliams – Take The Crown Stadium Tour

For dates and tickets:

In support of his ninth studio album Take the Crown Robbie’s latest world tour will be his first solo tour since the Close Encounters Tour of 2006.

What to expect: New music, old favourites and to be able to collect a live album of the concert you attend straight after the show if you pre-order here: (now THERE’S organisation for you!)


Rod Stewart – Live The Life Tour

For dates and tickets:

To accompany the release of his first original rock studio album in almost 20 years, the Grammy Award winning, two time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and one of the world’s best selling musical artists, will play arenas across the country including Nottingham, London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Sheffield. ”I cannot wait to get back on the road again especially in the UK where the fans always make it a very special occasion for me. The June tour is going to be fantastic!”

What to expect: Old classics such as Maggie May alongside new material from his latest album and possibly a kilt…


Bruce Springsteen – Wrecking Ball Tour

For dates and tickets:

The Boss’s ongoing concert tour in support of his seventh studio album Wrecking Ball has been an incredible commercial success and was named the second highest grossing tour of 2012. After 40 years in the business and a decade since his stadium tour of 2003, it’s fair to say his return to the UK is highly anticipated.

What to expect: Energy and charisma that defies the man’s age and a concert that continues for a lot longer than you expected.


Lewis Watson

For dates and tickets:

After receiving critical acclaim via Radio 1 and the support of thousands of eager YouTubers,  the summer of 2013 will see Lewis take to the stage on a headline tour to perform songs from his EP The Wild at gigs throughout the UK.

What to expect: One man and his guitar and a lot of soul, intimate gigs and a nurturing body of fans keen on supporting a gifted musician.
