No.9. 24th March 2018 “The Fratellis” at O2 Forum Kentish Town. Glasgow trio The Fratellis had phenomenal success with their debut album ‘Costello Music’ entering the U.K Album Chart at number 2, and went on to win the Best British Breakthrough Act at the Brit Awards in 2007. Following the release of their second album ‘Here We Stand’ the band toured America with sell-out shows in New York, Boston and Los Angeles. ‘Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied’ is the sound of freedom. It is the sound of a band at the peak of their powers. An exhilarating trip; it’s as much flying as it is falling with style. Listening to it; from the rush of album opener ‘Me And The Devil’ to the elegant landing of closing track ‘Moonshine’, it is obvious that The Fratellis are the embodiment of the maxim, “leap and the net will appear”. This is an album that oozes confidence and verve. After the release of 2013’s ‘We Need Medicine’, the Glaswegian trio, completed by Barry Fratelli (bass) and Mince Fratelli (drums) spent a year touring the world. At the tail end of 2014, they decamped to LA to work on album number four with Tony Hoffer (M83, Depeche Mode and Belle & Sebastian), who also produced their first album smash ‘Costello Music’. With Hoffer at the helm they were released. The pure enjoyment of ‘playing for the fun of it’ was back. The band had initially thought they’d produce the record themselves, but with Tony as ‘director’ all but two of the songs were thrown to the wind and in just four short weeks the album was written and recorded with The Fratellis relishing instrumentation and possibilities they wouldn’t have even thought about, without the direction of Hoffer. That unique, bright clarity of California sunshine seems to permeate the record and the band channelled it to create an album that represents what they do best. At the heart of ‘Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied’ there’s a fun, energetic soul reminiscent of their 2006 debut. It’s wonderfully vibrant, playful and the stories and characters it projects embody the spirit of LA (the first place Jon Fratelli ever went to outside Scotland). With recognisable nods to 70s Cali-rock, rockabilly and glorious hints of Americana and country layered high, it’s a glorious homecoming with roots in both Scotland and LA. Tickets: £23.50.

No. 10. 26th March to 23rd June 2018 “Chicago” at the Phoenix Theatre.

See the show that has entertained more than 31 million audience members in 36 countries across the globe, as it makes its return to London’s West End. Tickets from: £60.37 to £83.37.
