(1) The Blinders have been confirmed as main support to The Shimmer Band on This Feeling’s first tour of bigger venues with Bang Bang Romeo and Blackwaters. The Alive tour happens between 1st and 15th October. Tickets were due to have gone on sale this morning but in light of this week’s heart breaking events, Mikey Jonns – director/creator of This Feeling stated;
“When you feel nothing but anger, sorrow and total emptiness putting a tour on sale feels completely wrong. This Feeling tour will go on sale next week.
Thoughts, sympathy and love to all those affected and to the people of Manchester X”
(2) The Blinders will headline Abbie McCarthy of BBC Introducing’s Good Karma Club on Thursday 25th May, with special guests 485C and Motherhood at The Islington. Info/tickets: https://facebook.com/events/1861371744079527 RSVP a.s.a.p. for limited £3 industry list.
