Newcastle

Chris Ramsey
If you’re spending the weekend in the area, what better way to enjoy your Friday night than laughing along to one of Newcastle’s favourite sons, Chris Ramsey. The Geordie stand up heads back to his hometown for this intimate concert at the city hall on 21 March.

Franz Ferdinand
After seeming to disappear for a number of years after initially bursting onto the scene with their 2005 album You Could Have It So Much Better, Franz Ferdinand have made somewhat of a resurgence of late, and on 27th March, head to the Newcastle O2 Academy.

Elbow
Over a decade since their Mercury-nominated debut album Asleep in the Back was released, the Manchester band are still receiving critical acclaim, and head to Newcastle on their latest chart topping The Take Off and Landing of Everything tour. Playing at the O2 Academy in an intimate warm up concert, the five piece play the small venue on 31 March, and tickets are likely to be limited.

Miranda Hart
Another comedic offering to line up for your weekend city break, arguably the biggest name in female comedy heads to Leeds’ prime venue this month. The set of dates at the First Direct Arena still have tickets available, and with showings on both Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd March, you can easily plan your weekend around the performance timings.

Johnny Marr
It’s not often that rock royalty heads to Leeds, so when someone of Johnny Marr’s musical calibre heads to the city, it’s tough not to snap up tickets. The former Smith is playing one of Leeds’ smaller and newest venues, playing at the popular Belgrave Music Hall on the 24th March.

Manic Street Preachers
The renowned Welsh rockers have enjoyed just short of 30 years of success career in the industry, and with hit after hit still rolling into the charts, the three piece band from the South Wales Valley play First Direct Arena on Friday 28th March.

Manchester

OneRepublic
Arguably the American pop band of the year, OneRepublic have received masses of airtime since releasing their newest album, Native last year. With hits ‘If I Lose Myself’ and ‘Counting Stars’ receiving many plaudits, their catchy style of alternative pop heads to Manchester on Friday 21st March.

Bombay Bicycle Club
Since establishing back in 2005, Bombay Bicycle Club have seen a rapid rise through the music industry. Having progressed from smaller venues throughout their inaugural ‘I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose’ tour, the band have rapidly risen between 2008 and the present day, to the extent that their recent tour was performed on a global scale. Heading to Manchester on Friday 21st, make sure you grab a ticket for their Albert Hall date.

December: A month in music

Posted on:

Winter is well and truly here, and although that means many of us will confine ourselves to warmth, to others it means the arena concert scene is well in full swing. If you’re planning a musical themed weekend away, take a look at the music events coming up around three of the UK’s major northern cities. From mass popularity bands to something a little more refined, we’ve got your evenings sorted.

 

Leeds

If you’re looking for music in Leeds, look no further than the array of talent on show at the First Direct Arena this month. To kick off, on the very first day of the month, Xmas Party Live showcases a grand evening of pop music with  the likes of Example, The Saturdays, Eliza Doolittle, Conor Maynard, McFly and Rudimental all being pegged for the line up. If modern pop doesn’t take your fancy, Irish quartet Boyzone head to Leeds on the 9th, and you can grab your tickets for £35 if you want an evening of 90′s pop.

US smash hit show, New Jersey Nights comes to Leeds as part of the UK leg of their world tour, which is a spectacular celebration of the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons and takes the audience on a nostalgic musical journey through the career of one of the biggest selling groups of all times. Head to the First Direct Arena on the 4th of the month if the glitz and glamour of the States is more to your liking this December.

Newcastle

If a bit of old fashioned rock music is more to your liking, then this month’s highlight at the Metro Radio Arena is Status Quo & 10cc, who combine to put on a show on the 19th on December. Joining the Quo this month, Scottish pop rockers Wet Wet Wet head to the Toon on the 17th, along with special guests for the night, Blue.

Arguably the biggest name hitting the arena this month, JLS will say goodbye to Newcastle in style with their performance as part of the group’s farewell tour. If you’re a fan of the XFactor originated group, be sure to snap up a ticket soon for as little as £25.

Manchester

At Manchester’s Phones4U Arena this month, an array of musical performances are on offer, with something to suit every taste. If you aren’t a fan of the modern radio-played pop hits, and prefer your heavy metal to any other genre, then Bullet for my Valentine’s performance on the 1st December may take your fancy. Similarly, if you’re a fan of old school heavy rock, December 18th sees the legendary original line-up of Black Sabbath perform a string of classic hits along with new tracks from recently released album, 13. Other pop performances are on show throughout the rest of December, with Will.i.am hitting the stage on the 3rd, DJ’s Tiesto & Calvin Harris light up the stage on the 21st and the Key 103 Jingle Ball takes centre stage on the 12th, as big name artists such as Robbie Williams, Pixie Lott, and Jason Derulo contribute to the ensemble cast concert.
