Ocean Colour Scene – 9/12/18 and 10/12/18 – O2 Academy, Newcastle

Ocean Colour Scene are one of the standout acts from the Britpop Era. This December the band are embarking on a UK Christmas tour. It includes not one, but two nights at O2 Academy, Newcastle due to exceptionally high demand…

Unlike many of their peers, the Birmingham quartet have managed to stand the test of time.

With a career which has spanned nineteen years and a staggering ten albums, OCS have managed to gain a cult like fanbase and regularly sell out shows across the UK.

This has been the case for much of the latest tour including the first Newcastle date on 9th December.

The tour is poised to be extra special considering that the band have just put out their first new material in five years. This was on a four track, self titled EP which was released earlier this month.

If you want to see OCS performing the new material and previous hit songs like ‘The Day We Caught The Train’ and ‘The Riverboat Song’ then make sure you come to O2 Academy on 10th December. Martha Reeves and The Vandellas will support. 



GZA, one of the celebrated members of rap collective Wu-Tang Clan, comes to Newcastle on 10th April 2019. The iconic artist will play a fittingly iconic venue: Riverside.

This upcoming show from the rapper promises to be extra special as he will be performing the full track listing of ‘Liquid Swords’.

This album, which was GZA’s second solo offering and his first since the formation of Wu-Tang, is often cited as the best solo LP from any member of the collective.

In a way, ‘Liquid Swords,’ is still very much a Wu-Tang project. This is because it features all nine of its members. Production duties were also undertaken by RZA, the self professed leader of the group.

Since its release, the album has endured in terms of critical claim. Reviewers tend to agree on GZA’s status as a lyrical mastermind.

Don’t miss out the remarkable opportunity to see the genius himself.
