Years & Years
We love Olly. That’s it, thanks for coming to our Ted Talk. Okay, let’s be serious for a sec, Years & Years have had a mega year this year, and we’ve loved watching the journey, from the BRIT Awards, to starring in one of the best things on 2021 UK TV – The Russell T Davies miniseries It’s A Sin, Olly Alexander has blown us away consistently this year. And he’s set to continue that trailblazing and shining success, next year, with his brand new album Night Call due in January! As he heads out on his The Night Call Tour, kicking off in Australia in February, followed by the UK leg in May. We absolutely cannot wait, and in the latest news that made us do cartwheels (jokes, we thought about it, but our knees weren’t in the mood) Olly has added another date to the tour! So if you haven’t snapped up a ticket yet, you’re in luck! Years & Years will be taking over Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena, UK, on May 23rd! Tickets are on sale on Friday 10th December at 9 AM, so get your devices ready, we’re sure this will be a hot show! If Olly’s Pyramid Stage set at Glasto is anything to go by, this will be a night to remember!
Did someone say Jimmie Allen’s first headline tour? Oh yeah, that’s right, it’s us, we’re saying it! The reigning CMA New Artist of the Year & ACM New Male Artist of the Year is hitting the road for his Down Home Tour! The GRAMMY nominee is kicking off his tour at the iconic Troubador in LA on February 3rd, and we have goosebumps thinking about how incredible that night will be! General ticket sales go live on December 10th at 10 AM local time, and we’re so ready to join whatever online queue we have to, to secure those goods! Jimmie chewed up the only country nomination in the GRAMMY all-genre category, amongst so many accolades and successes throughout the year, so it feels only right that he now gets to own that headline stage!. Speaking of the tour, Jimmie said:
I’m looking forward to the Down Home Tour, my first ever headlining tour. I wanted to wait awhile before headlining because I wanted the timing to be right, I didn’t want to rush it. I wanted to make sure I was ready, my band was ready, so we could give the audience what they deserve every night – which is greatness,
Well, Jimmie, we think you’re pretty great, and we can’t wait to see you on the road! You shouldn’t wait either, get ready to grab your tickets, all the info is here! Get pumped by streaming Jimmie Allen’s latest album Bettie James Gold Edition, here!
In case you didn’t already know, we are absolute simps for The Snuts here at The Honey POP. They are incapable of putting out a non-banger, and we’d send them cookies if we could. So when these new UK tour dates flew across our desk, we made involuntary noises. This is their biggest headline tour to date, and now they’re adding even more dates! We’re just going to give you a minute to digest that! Our fave Scottish rockers are adding a night at London’s O2 Academy Brixton, as well as dates in Manchester and Newcastle. These new dates which kick off in April will follow their sold-out tour dates in January, so we know these tickets are going to sell out, fast! Oh dear, the absolute FOMO at THP HQ right now! With the success of their debut album W.L earlier this year, and their vocal (in more ways than one!) single ‘Burn The Empire,’ these four lads are going from strength to strength, and we love to see it! They’re destined for absolute greatness, so this tour is bound to be one you’ll tell your grandkids about! So what are you waiting for, get your browsers open and ready! Ticket info is right here!
Stream ‘Burn The Empire’ right now!
Rainbow Kitten Surprise
Rainbow Kitten Surprise has surprised us! They’ve just dropped more North American tour dates, and with an upcoming two-night show at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater selling out in literally minutes, and their 2019 tour selling out over 80,000 tickets, we’re ready to get in line! This Nashville fivesome are absolutely slaying live music and we’re so excited that they’re adding more shows because quite honestly, they serve at every opportunity! Kicking off in Spring 2022, the tour will see members Sam, Bozzy, Ethan, Charlie, and Jess bring their anthemic, eccentric and harmonious magic to stages across North America. After the massive success of their debut live album RKS! Live From Athens Georgia in August this year, we just know these tour dates are going to make the hairs on our arms stand up! And if you weren’t already in love, check this – the band are joining hands with PLUS1, ensuring $1 from every ticket sold will go to fighting food inequalities and supporting local food banks in their communities. We stan!!
Okay, we think that’s enough excitement for one day! With so many incredible artists blessing us with tour announcements and brand new dates, it’s been an emotional whirlwind for live music lovers!
