A word about our listings

A guide for Customers

These days artists and bands tend to book their tours months in advance. In order to give you the best notice of up and coming shows we list events once they have been confirmed by the band or their management.

The downside of this is that dates can change due to unforeseen circumstances, sometimes at very short notice. We do our best to ensure that this site is kept as up to date as is possible, with updates happening at least once a week.

Therefore to avoid disappointment we recommend that you check these listing prior to setting out for your show especially if you are travelling any distance.

A guide for Artists and Promoters

The quickest way to get yourself included in our listings is to send an email to rideout at stayfree.co.uk once your gig is confirmed.

We also need you to do the following -

Put the name of the artist or band name along with the date of your show in the email subject line.

Attach a reasonable sized photograph. A 72dpi, jpeg, bigger than 200x200 pixels would be fine. Please don't email files over 1mb in size. If in doubt please drop us a line before sending. Let us have your web address so we can link to your site or Myspace page.

Send us some text. Whilst we are happy to tidy up spelling or grammar, we don't have the time to write or edit copy for you. Ideally we need a nice concise 'blurb' of between 75-100 words. Please don't send a three page biography, or else we are likely to bounce it back to you. If you have a selection of press quotes send what you have as we can usually easily compile something from them. There are plenty of examples of the sort of thing we need here on the site to help you out.

Please note - If you have played at The Musician before and we have text on file, we will continue to use use it for any subsequent listings unless you supply new copy.

If you spot any errors please send an email to derek at indiecentral.co.uk.

Duran UK
£10.00adv £12.00door
For over a decade DURAN have maintained their reputation as one of the world’s most respected Duran Duran tribute bands, extensively touring across the UK, playing for clients including Butlins, Pontins, Warner Leisure Breaks, Chicago Rock Cafe, Grosvenor Casinos, Glastonbudget and Tribfest, and featuring on ITV and BBC Radio.
Performing close to 2 hours of hits and fan favourites, DURAN pride themselves on the faithful reproduction of the variety of musical styles and sounds Duran Duran have brought to the world of music throughout their 40 year career. The repertoire encompasses the band’s early hits in the 80’s - Planet Earth, Hungry Like The Wolf, Rio and The Wild Boys – together with their Ivor Novello award-winning 90’s comeback single, Ordinary World, and tracks from their critically acclaimed 2015 album, Paper Gods, where Duran Duran were reunited with former producer and friend, Nile Rodgers, and with Mark Ronson.

DURAN authentically reproduce the sounds and music of this influential global act. The band also delivers the showmanship, raw energy and charisma of Birmingham’s original ‘Fab 5’. And it’s their attention to detail that sets DURAN apart from the rest!

In 2017, after a brief break, DURAN hit the floor running with new frontman Pete Wood, finishing the year with a run of 3 formidable live shows, quickly winning fan-approval of the new line-up and further enhancing what was already a rock-solid show.

DURAN guarantees audiences a night to remember, pleasing not only the most fanatical of Durannies, but anyone who just loves music!

Strange Doors
£10.00adv £12.00door
Doors 8:00pm - 11:30pm
We are a Doors tribute band that takes you back in time by recreating the sights and sounds of the legends you know and love. This band doesn’t just replicate the studio versions of Doors classics; we actually recreate the live Doors experience. Here you will find ad-libbed poetry, a singer that jumps into the air and writhes on the floor (whilst conjuring the Lizard King with his rich baritone voice), jazzy organ solos, bluesy slide guitar and powerful, yet subtle drumming that punctuates the music and vocals. Like a gig by the real Doors, a Strange Doors gig has an air of unpredictability... audiences are kept guessing what to expect next. The atmosphere is charged with the darkness and feeling of menace that only Doors music can provide. The Strange Doors will take you on a journey into the severed garden... fires will be lit and lizards will be celebrated!

Roxy Magic
Roxy Magic are the UK's Definitive and longest-running tribute to Roxy Music and Bryan Ferry.

They recreate entirely live material which spans four decades, from futurist/nostalgic art rock, through classic standards to sophisticated adult-oriented rock. Their aim is to give the audience a fabulously entertaining evening. Very high quality musicianship and a wonderful
Bryan Ferry look and sound-alike in the person of singer Kevin Hackett,combine to do just that.

"It took a long time for there to be a Roxy tribute band;there is one now and it's very good." - Roxy Music's Andy Mackay
