This Feeling is taking its club night across the UK with its biggest nations tour in its 11-year history.
The Alive tour will showcase bands that have emerged from This Feeling club nights, which has organically become the country’s No.1 live new music event.
This Feeling also has stages at festivals including Isle Of Wight and Reading & Leeds, and has become a popular hang out for stars such as the Noel and Liam Gallagher, Kasabian and The Libertines.
The tour opens in Bristol on October 1 and will play in most major cities including Glasgow and Manchester.
The Libertines frontman Carl Barat sad: “This Feeling offer one of the few consistent platforms for up and coming bands. If you're going to see the emergence of a new great band you'll see them at This Feeling first.”
And Noel Gallagher added: “We are living in a world where guitar music has been marginalised so what This Feeling is doing at the moment is vital. This Feeling is the best club in The UK for future rock and roll stars. They believe in the power of guitar music and when Rock and Roll makes it’s glorious comeback you can bet your arse you will have heard it first at This Feeling.”
The tour’s line-up includes The Shimmer Band (pictured), Bang Bang Romeo, Blackwaters and special guests in each city.
