There’s a definite contrast between the acts playing in Leamington this week.
On Tuesday local soul diva Beverley Knight is at the Assembly, promoting her new album Soul UK. Tickets £23.50
Thursday sees veteran Welsh rock’n’roller Shakin’ Stevens (amazingly the biggest-selling British artist of the eighties) performing as part of his re-scheduled 30th anniversary tour. Tickets £23.50
On Friday German industrial metal band KMFDM play the Assembly. Their latest album WTF came out earlier this year and they count Nine Inch Nails and Ministry as contemporaries. Tickets £15.
Saturday has one of the great cult heroes of British music appearing in the shape of former Icicle world frontman Ian McNabb, in a one-off performance alongside Waterboys pianist Richard Naiff for an evening which will include the duo’s album Great Things, and no doubt many other classic songs. Tickets £15
On Sunday there’s the legendary original prog rockers Barclay James Harvest, in the incarnation of the band led by founder member vocalist/guitarist John Lees. Tickets £22.50.
Upcoming attractions at the Assembly also include Ocean Colour Scene (28th November), Jerry Sadowitz (30th November) and Gary Numan (7th December).
