This event is all ages
It has been a whirlwind few years for Gabrielle Aplin whose career took off
when she built a massive fanbase by posting videos of herself singing online
back in 2012.
Aplin released her debut album English Rain in 2013 which spawned her
iconic cover of ‘The Power Of Love’ which reached #1 in the UK. With a slew
of further top 10 hits including ‘Please Don’t Say You Love Me’ ‘Home’ ‘Salvation’
and ‘Panic Cord’ English Rain is now certified GOLD.
18 months of international touring followed, where Aplin racked up a further 3
#1s worldwide. Getting the opportunity to play shows and go on tour all over
the world had an impact on Gabrielle and bled into her sophomore album
‘Light Up The Dark’ (2015) which displayed a maturing in Aplin’s sound with
the anthemic and ambitious singles like ‘Sweet Nothing’ and title track ‘Light
Up The Dark’.
Aplin’s creativity and songwriting ability is unyielding and in 2016 'Miss You'
EP was released on her own label 'Never Fade Record's and has reached an
astonishing 40 million streams thus far.
Following a summer of festivals all over the UK, and a tour in Japan Aplin is
bringing her show to the US with a string of live dates in September- October
2017. Playing a lively set that contains a mixture of her most loved songs and
some brand new music -this is a show from a unique talent not to be missed.
Irish duo, brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson Taylor, released their debut album “Singing for Strangers” in 2015. The multi-talented siblings having honed their craft busking on the streets of their hometown of Dublin as well as cities all over Europe. The album, which was produced by Iain Archer (James Bay, Jake Bugg), featured three big hits - ‘Chasing Rubies’, ‘Battles’ and ‘Weapons’.
Hudson Taylor are currently putting the finishing touches to their second album, which has been produced by Ryan Hadlock, best known for his work with The Lumineers and Vance Joy, and is being mixed by Ruadhri Cushnan (Mumford & Son, Ed Sheeran).
The band enjoyed a very successful 2017, playing to one of the biggest crowds of the weekend at the Electric Picnic festival in September, and their lead-off Irish single “Feel It Again” was one of the biggest national airplay hits of 2017. Hudson Taylor’s Irish autumn tour was a sell-out and they also played huge shows with Picture This, The Script and Kodaline.
Fresh from a sold out UK and European tour in support of their brand new single "Run with me" Hudson Taylor are excited and delighted to support Gabrielle Aplin on her upcoming US and Canadian tour.
One listen to Splithoff’s smoky, soulful croon and the breezy way his songs half step and skip smoothly along the stage, it’s obvious why millions of people around the world have fallen in love with Splithoff’s striking synthesis of old school soul and contemporary pop.
Originally from Chicago where he cut his teeth as a songwriter and performer, Splithoff now lives in NYC where the urban soul of the Big Apple taught him to treat the swarms of people buzzing around him as an audience ripe for his evolving pop sound.
Splithoff’s first single “Sing To You” – released without the support of a label and solely based on the reaction of fans - has generated over 20 million Spotify streams, and counting. Splithoff’s follow up single, “Show Me,” a seductively soulful sunshine jam lifted up by John’s incisive lyricism and soulful vocal delivery, was released in July 2017
As Splithoff has grown and moved across various gritty concrete landscapes, so too has his music, which deftly incorporates myriad elements from his surroundings and packages them into one unmistakable pop- soul-dance experience. 2017 finds John writing, touring, and releasing new material, with his sights set on expanding well beyond the two cities of his origin.
NEW DATE: Saturday March 10, 2018. All tickets from postponed October 6, 2017 will be honored. Refunds available until February 10, 2018.
Gabrielle Aplin: "I’m absolutely gutted to not be physically able to complete my North American shows. I hate to let anyone down and this is not a decision I have taken lightly. I’m so so sorry to everyone who has bought tickets and who were looking forward to the show."
