The Springsteen Sessions, Glasgow 's top homage to
The Boss and The E Street Band, are delighted to announce two February shows in Scotland . After a busy and successful 2017, which saw the band perform at new venues in Paisley, Manchester, Darlington, Belfast, Greenock and Dumbarton, the band are revisiting several of these venues in 2018, as well as new locations in Largs, Motherwell, Birmingham, Hull and Leeds in a tour that takes the band into their busiest year since they formed in 2010.

The current tour, which entails shows every month from January 2018 until March 2019, will have the classic tracks, the anthems, and the well-known singles, as well as a track-by-track performance of the iconic ‘Born In The USA' album from 1984 in its entirety.

‘We tried it out on some English dates recently, as the centrepiece of our two-and-a half hour show, and it went down really well, so we decided to keep that formula for the next few shows', said band spokesman and keyboard player Pete Clark, the only Edinburgh member of the seven-piece band, who are all from Glasgow and surrounding area.

The 2018 show is really based around the theme of ‘more of the same, but with different songs added' , and initial reactions have been very positive'.

Friday 16 February : LARGS Barrfields Pavilion Theatre : 7.30pm

Tickets from box office 01475 689777 , or www.ticketsource.co.uk/Barrfields

Friday 23 February : LIVINGSTON Howden Park Centre : 7.30pm

Scottish Guitar Virtuoso Andy Gunn brings his all new line up featuring the cream of Scottish Blues musicians on tour in support of brand new album ‘Too Many Guitars To Give Up Now'. Compared to Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan in the press, Andy has absorbed these classic influences but also honed his own style and voice over the years by the old fashioned route of wood shedding and jamming in every bar and club the length of the UK. He has also played many festivals and shared the stage with such names as Buddy Guy, Albert Collins and Geno Washington. Signed to Virgin at a young age, song writing has also been a vitally important element for this outstanding, soulful yet fiery musician and he has many heartfelt and spiritually themed songs. Support (and backing vocals) comes from wonderful Edinburgh singer songwriter Liz Jones.

LILYGUN ALBUM SALE NOW ON!
Get Lilygun's debut album on sale now! 
This album has sold out in shops so this is the only place where Cds are available.

Visit the Shop here: http://www.lilygun.com/ shop
and get your copy while it's on sale now!

Here's what they said about it...

“There have been many debut albums that bring you that "wow" factor and Lilygun is right up there with the best. The songs are atmospheric, played brilliantly but above all sung to perfection by front woman Anna-Christina. Lilygun are getting the attention and recognition from the music industry for all their qualities and hard work. About bloody time too”.
Neil Richardson. Roomthirteen

"Escaping the genre trap with consummate ease, Lilygun's self-titled debut deals in freedom of expression and a feast of guitar-driven emotion dredged from the depths of London's underground live music scene. Impossible to pigeon-hole and yet easy to admire, Lilygun could be the shot in the arm British rock is searching for".
Gun-Ho. Rush On Rock

"What's most striking about the album from Lilygun is how they've combined a real sense of catchiness with their technical approach to things, combining their signature sound with an almost mainstream like quality, something which will stand them out as more than a simple rock band. This ability, and the resulting sound is what makes this such a stand out album, and one which I have a feeling is going to do remarkably well once it's in the public domain from the 10th of September. If you only ever listen to one album we review, then make it this one – believe me when I say it's worth your while!"
Dave Nicholls. Loud-Stuff

“Few bands in recent memory have grabbed my attention like London rockers Lilygun. There is so much depth to this record. It's dark and cerebral, it's moody and pensive, it's operatic and it rocks balls. Musically, there is an evident solid chemistry with gorgeous bass lines by Aaron John and David Ryder Prangley and drummer Belle Star laying down the foundation for massive orchestral highs and magnificently simple lows. Add to this a deliciously balanced mix of guitar sounds, ranging from haunting background growls to full bore wall-o'-sound solos. Then there is the tour-de-force that IS Anna-Christina. With song writing chops that, for me, rival those of the great Tori Amos, she is certain to be a force to be reckoned with. This is not to mention the fact that she is one of the most gorgeous bad-ass rocker women I've ever seen”.
Kevin. Nanobot Rock Reviews

“This is a set of songs written by the band's dynamic and charismatic singer, Anna-Christina, demonstrating such variety that it's difficult to pin the sound down to 1 genre. The arrangements squeeze every last drop out of a fairly traditional line-up and create a huge dynamic range across the album. This is a great first album from an original and inventive band and I haven't heard anything else this year to surpass this in terms of raw power and dynamic range; they've been on the horizon for a while now and this should be the breakthrough. This is a great album”.
Allan McKay. Music Riot

“Anna-Christina's voice is both unique and unexpected. The album only hints at the intensity this band could create live; it's a tease, a promise of better things, an album that will leave you on the hunt for tickets to see them play live. Lilygun know how to lead their listeners, drawing them intimately close before hitting them hard with a punk riff or two. Lilygun's debut album is an insight into just what they can do, varied and exciting, it clearly sets them up as one to watch.”
Keller. EGL Magazine


"This band is going places, no doubt about it and I strongly suggest that radio stations and festival organisers start checking them out now! The band deliver 8 tracks of Rock music that brims with attitude and melody."
Dave. Ravenheart Music
