CAGE THE ELEPHANT
Bristol Bierkeller Fri 12th Feb 2016 Tickets £15adv on sale this Friday 27th Nov 9am NEW ALBUM ‘TELL ME I’M PRETTY’ 18th DECEMBER Cage the Elephant, who release their new album ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty’ through Columbia Records on 18th December, have confirmed a string of European shows in February. The gigs will be the bands’ first since playing with Foals at Alexandra Palace in Feb 2014. The Times raved about those shows, reporting, “charismatic singer Matt Shultz ended stripped to the waist, upside down in the crowd, feet flailing above the heads around him”. Cage The Elephant recently performed an equally exhilarating set during a secret show at CMJ with Consequence of Sound describing the show as “absolutely wild” and said “Matt Shultz has developed a reputation as a fearless performer, and his daredevil antics were on full display.” ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty ‘was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys & The Arcs, mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Florence + the Machine) and recorded at Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, TN, near the group’s hometown of Bowling Green, KY.

They recorded most of the songs on the first take, capturing the band’s raw and frenetic onstage energy. ‘Melophobia’ took the band to new heights, delivering two Number One singles on the Alternative charts (‘Come a Little Closer’ and ‘Cigarette Daydreams’), with Rolling Stone heralding “Kentucky's Cage the Elephant warp Sixties garage rock, Seventies punk and Eighties alt-rock into excellently weird new shapes”. Their 2011 album ‘Thank You Happy Birthday ‘debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and was praised as “one of the best rock albums of the year”. Long celebrated as one of the most explosive live bands in the world, Cage the Elephant has toured extensively, selling out several headlining runs and performing alongside the likes of The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Muse and Queens of the Stone Age.

Kieran Hodgson's 'Lance'
KIERAN HODGSON: LANCE In 2003, Lance Armstrong won his 5th Tour de France title, and a young boy in West Yorkshire believed in him. Now a character comedian, he (the boy) sets out on tour with a heartfelt and hilarious story of growing up, betrayal by professional athletes, and redemption. ‘Lance’ was nominated for Best Show at the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2015 and had a sell-out four-week run in London’s West End last autumn. Kieran starred in BBC2’s Making Dad’s Army this Christmas, and featured in BBC2’s Count Arthur Strong and the movie Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa. ‘An absolute gem of a comedy show – about teenage cycling, sullied dreams and migrating from the north. Every line of his script is wired for laughter’ The Guardian ‘Hodgson has here served up a one-man effort that lets his comedic talents roar as never before… Tour de France? Tour de force, more like’ The Telegraph ‘An impeccably woven piece of one-man storytelling… brilliantly funny’ The Times ‘A warm, funny and seamlessly delivered hour of character comedy’ The Sunday Times Tickets available now from Bristol Ticket Shop.

The Elvis Years - The Story Of The King
With a top line-up of actor-musicians, multiple costume changes and nostalgic film footage, this glittering two-hour production charts the musical and emotional highs and lows of Elvis' amazing journey from poor truck-driving teenager from Tupelo, Mississippi through the army, Hollywood and finally the legendary Las Vegas concerts. Directed by top record producer David Mackay (Dusty Springfield, Cliff Richard, Bonnie Tyler, New Seekers), the lead role is perfectly portrayed by Mario Kombou (from West End production Jailhouse Rock), who is officially endorsed by Elvis Presley Enterprises and Elvis' first cousin Donna Presley. This feelgood show will instantly transport you back to the golden years of rock'n'roll, as you witness Elvis audition for the very first time at Sun Studios, then become part of the TV audience for the '68 Comeback Special, and finally dance in the aisles at a Las Vegas concert as Mario recreates with incredible accuracy the charisma, stage presence and humour of the man himself - you may even get your hands on a scarf! Taking in all the biggest hits including Always On My Mind, (recently voted the UKs all-time favourite Elvis song), That's Alright Mama, All Shook Up, Blue Suede Shoes, Suspicious Minds, American Trilogy as well as Hollywood favourites Bossa Nova Baby and Viva Las Vegas, you will leave the building on cloud 9!!
