THE CHARLATANS – 05/12/17 – 02 Academy, Newcastle
The Charlatans are one of British music’s ultimate success and survival tales. They’ve been Tellin’ Stories for the best part of 30 years and with the release of their latest album, Different Days, the band are showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. This November they embark on an 11-date UK tour and will be bringing their fantastic live show to Newcastle’s O2 Academy on Tuesday 5th December on what is sure to be another great night of indie classics that will have fans rolling back the years.
The Manchester band have been consistently releasing quality albums since 1989 but there’ve been plenty of lows to go with the many highs in their career, having suffered the tragic deaths of original keyboardist Rob Collins and drummer Jon Brookes. Undeterred, the band have overcome adversity and have a back catalogue that is second to none with such indie dance-floor hits like the anthems North Country Boy, One To Another and The Only One I Know. What’s more, some have described Different Days as their best album in 20 years.
In support, London’s power-poppers Average Sex will be celebrating the release of their new track Ice Cream which is nothing short of orgasmic, whilst County Durham’s Tom Mouse Smith may have been born with only half a working heart, but the 13 year old singer-songwriter protégé has already supported the likes of Shed Seven and Frankie & The Heartstrings so will be sure to capture the hearts of Charlatans fans this December.
