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.

Kid - A Tribute to The Pretenders
£10.00adv £12.00door
Kid perform an authentic and powerful tribute to the music of one of the world’s best-loved bands - The Pretenders.

In the studio, The Pretenders crafted perfect pop; radio-friendly but oh so cool. Live, they were wilder and heavier and Kid perfectly capture both these sides of The Pretenders’ personality.

Drawing upon an inspirational back catalogue of Pretenders classics, Kid replicate the sound and feel of a Pretenders live show with power and panache. All the hits are there including; Brass in Pocket, Back on the Chain Gang, Don’t Get Me Wrong, Talk of the Town, I’ll Stand By You, Stop Your Sobbing and, of course, the staggeringly beautiful Kid. Augmenting this cavalcade of hits, Kid rock the stage with a selection of The Pretenders’ most popular album tracks.

Leading the group is the dynamic Rachy Jones who recreates Chrissie Hynde’s distinctive, aching, bruised-yet-defiant vocals with passionate authenticity. Rock solid rhythm guitar guaranteed.

Rachy is ably supported by Paulo on lead guitar, Balacqua on bass and Sharp on drums. Together, these four experienced and talented musicians reproduce the timeless, classic music of The Pretenders with precision, pride and passion.

Dark Side Of The Wall
£10.00adv £12.00door
The ever-popular award winning ‘Dark Side Of The Wall’ return once again to present an evening of classic Pink Floyd music. Though originally from Coventry, the annual shows at The Musician have become the band’s ‘hometown’ gig now that there are three Leicester-based band members in the line-up.

One of those is the band’s long-serving bass player Steve Chilton says, “I always think that one of our great selling points is the fact that we love what we do. Live gigs should always be about that band and audience interaction. Admittedly, Pink Floyd’s music and persona is often perceived as quite serious but whilst we perform their music with the love and respect it deserves, we always bring our own personalities to the stage. This is definitely no ‘look-a-like’ tribute band and we’re proud of that. Who’d want to look like Pink Floyd anyway?”

In well over 2 hours of reverent tribute to their heroes DSOTW perform music from all Pink Floyd’s classic albums and feature tracks such as Comfortably Numb, Money, Shine On You Crazy Diamond and Another Brick In The Wall to name just a few. If you’ve seen Dark Side Of The Wall in concert before then you’ll know it’s a gig not to be missed as they bring their theatre show into the more intimate setting of the Musician.

ROCK BOTTOM (UK) was formed in 2012 by a group of experienced musicians united by a common love of classic UFO / Michael Schenker Group.

Are you ready to go craaaaaaazy???

Bassist Gerry McAvoy [Nine Below Zero, Champion Jack Dupree, Deep Joy] appeared on every one of those albums. Also featuring Brendan O'Neill on drums and Davy Knowles on guitar and vocals.
