Five Finger Death Punch

One of the most successful metal bands to explode in recent years, Five Finger Death Punch formed in 2005 and have quickly come to enjoy global adoration. With each album reaching Gold certification and second album War Is The Answer hitting Platinum, their huge commercial success is clear.

The LA hard rockers have just announced an arena tour which is sure to please their UK fans. Playing at Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds and London, the tickets are expected to sell quickly so set a personal reminder with Gigantic so you are ahead of the rest.

Leftfield have led the way for British dance music since their inception at the tail end of the eighties. Their career has charted the rise of techno and house from underground illegal raves to huge mainstream success which came with the release of debut album Leftism in 1995.

Celebrating twenty-two years of their seminal album Leftism, Leftfield will play the record in its entirety at Times Square in Newcastle on Friday 28th of July, 2017. It promises to be an incredible evening of music and one of the biggest events of the year.

Leftfield can be yours from 09:00 on Friday.


Rise Against

With sales of over four million copies of their last five releases since 2011, Rise Against have risen to become one of the world’s biggest hardcore punk bands. First formed in 1999, their political driven agitational music inspires many around the globe.

With the release of their brand-new album Wolves, Rise Against now hit the UK for a mighty autumn tour which takes them to Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, London and Newcastle where they will play the new tracks plus material from their killer back catalogue.
