SOME of the biggest and best emerging acts in the UK indie scene will be visiting Bristol as part of the riotous NME Awards Tour next year.
Two Door Cinema Club, Metronomy, Tribes and Azealia Banks will all be featuring at the O2 academy on February 20 on the tour, which has featured the likes of Arctic Monkeys, The Killers and Florence and Machine in the past.
The tour will start in Glasgow on February 8, and take in 12 dates before coming to a close at the O2 academy Brixton in London.
Two Door Cinema Club will headline the tour, and have become one of the UK’s best-loved indie bands since releasing their debut album Tourist History in March 2010.
They have recently performed sell-out headline tours in the UK, USA, Europe, Australia, Japan and South America and selling out a gig at the O2 Academy Brixton is under four hours.
Hailing from Totnes in Devon, Metronomy have become one of the most expansive and visionary pop and electronica bands in the country following the release of their second album The English Riviera, earlier this year.
London quartet Tribes have gone from prodigious debut slots opening for indie rocks The Pixies to being lauded the future of rock n’ roll by fellow act the Mystery Jets, and will now get a chance to show what their made of on next year’s tour.
Finishing off the line-up, New York produced and MC Azealia Banks has gone from being a child in off-broadway theatre productions to being one of the most-talked about acts to come out of the Big Apple in recent years.
Tickets, priced £21.50, are available from www.NME.com, Gigs and Tours, or Ticketmaster, or the venue on 0870 7712000.
