MERCURY-NOMINATED, ALT-POP FOUR-PIECE JOIN THE NATIONAL LOTTERY’S UNITED BY MUSIC TOUR - TICKETS ON SALE 10AM, WEDNESDAY 2nd AUGUST
Mercury-nominated, alt-pop four-piece The Big Moon have announced that they will be joining The National Lottery’s United By Music Tour with Music Venue Trust. The band will perform ten special shows in intimate venues across the country, to support Grassroots Music Venues amid the ongoing cost-of-living crisis. With one grassroots music venue closing each week, the tour has already seen Blossoms, Cat Burns, Metronomy and Bloc Party return to their roots to highlight the importance of these local venues as part of the music industry’s wider ecosystem, and as important local cultural hubs.
Speaking on the tour, vocalist Juliette Jackson said: “We are so excited to go out on this tour! These smaller venues are so crucial to the UK's musical landscape - they give new artists a vital space to learn and hone their craft and enter the world of live music at an accessible level. We need to protect these places to keep new music coming."
The Big Moon will be performing at:
5th Sept - Tunbridge Wells Forum
6th Sept - Bath Moles
8th Sept - Swansea Hanger
9th Sept - Stoke Sugarmill

12th Sept - Galashiels MacArts Theatre
