Gig Guide: Tour date round up for June 28

Welcome to the Gig Guide where we round up some of the recently announced alternative music tour dates and one-off shows!

In this week’s Gig Guide, we bring you 10 recently announced tours and one-off shows which will be heading to the UK and Ireland!

Sophie Lloyd

Sophie Lloyd has upgraded her London headline show after the original venue sold out.

“I can’t believe I’m finally announcing my first official live headline show, it seems like such a long time coming,” declares Sophie.

“It’s funny because my anxiety and hesitancy to play live was what really inspired the creation of this album, the title track in particular. We put so much work and love into Imposter Syndrome and we’re so excited to finally take the next step in our musical journey and bring that to the stage so people can experience it in person with a full live band. It was so incredible to see the response to the album and sometimes I still have to pinch myself as I can’t believe we actually managed to pull it off!”
