EEVAH TO OPEN SHOW FOR MUSIC LEGENDS DURAN DURAN

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Halifax’s very own alt-pop heroes EEVAH have landed the ultimate hometown gig – opening the show for stadium-filling British music icons Duran Duran.

The White Rose purveyors of high-energy indie pop will support the Grammy, BRIT Award and 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees at The Piece Hall, Halifax, on Tuesday July 5.

Final tickets are on sale now via ticketmaster.co.uk

Duran Duran’s show at the historic Yorkshire venue’s stunning open-air courtyard is part of the biggest and best ever line-up for Live At The Piece Hall – with headline shows from the likes of Paul Weller, Tom Jones, Paloma Faith, Jessie Ware and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – plus many more.

EEVAH are singer/songwriter Nicole Hope Smith (vocals/piano) and Richard McNamara of anthemic Yorkshire indie rock chart-topper’s Embrace on guitars and electronics.

With a musical mantra that is all about combining rock and indie, with catchy pop hooks and echoes of the 80s and 90s, they are about to follow up brilliant debut EP ‘Promises’ with new EP ‘Wild Things’

Ahead of their appearance with Duran Duran at The Piece Hall they will release new single ‘Out Of Focus’, on July 1 – just in time to soundtrack everyone’s summer!

The Piece Hall show with Duran Duran will be EEVAH’s biggest gig to date – and one they actually had tickets for long before landing the support slot!

Nicole explained: “We bought four tickets for the show the day they went on sale – there was no way we were going to miss this gig. Now we are playing it!

“This will by far be the biggest gig we have ever played and we absolutely can’t wait!”

EEVAH are opening the night for a band whose place in music history has long been assured.

Duran Duran – singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor – have sold more than 100 million records worldwide. They have scored 18 American hit singles and 21 UK Top 20 tunes – cementing them as one of the most successful and influential bands of all time.

Consistently fusing art, technology, fashion and a signature sense of style with their unique and infectious brand of music, they have proven themselves timeless, always innovating and reinventing, to remain ahead of the curve.

Duran Duran’s 2021 album FUTURE PAST – their highest charting album in 16 years – was met with widespread critical acclaim. It was described as an album “that looks firmly to the future” by Rolling Stone UK, “classic Duran” by The Times, “a blast” by CLASH, and “all a fan could want” by the Evening Standard.

The band will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in November alongside fellow 2022 inductees Eminem, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Eurythmics, Carly Simon, Judas Priest and Pat Benatar.

Before that they play a series of huge headline concerts in Europe – including their unmissable night at The Piece Hall on July 5.

The show is presented by Cuffe and Taylor and The Piece Hall Trust.  Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “What a moment for EEVAH to be opening the show in our stunning courtyard for music legends Duran Duran.

“I love that we are able to shine the spotlight on local talent by inviting them to play alongside global superstars at Live at The Piece Hall.

“A truly incredible summer of music is heading to Halifax, with the 2022 line up definitely the biggest and best ever.”

LEVISON WOOD TO EXPLORE THE UK WITH NEW TOUR

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Critically acclaimed author and explorer Levison Wood will be taking to the stage for his third UK tour this autumn – The Art Of Exploration.


Travelling across the country, Levison will visit 15 towns and cities with this entertaining two-hour one-man show as he recalls tales ranging from his lifetime of travel and Army career to world-renowned expeditions.

Levison Wood is a best-selling author and photographer who has worked and travelled across more than 100 countries and has written nine best-selling books. In The Art Of Exploration he will share his experiences and learnings from his travels, his Army career including serving in the Parachute Regiment and the front-line of Afghanistan, to his photo-journalism assignments in the Congo and Nepal.

As an explorer Levison has trekked thousands of miles through some of the world’s most testing environments including the Nile, Himalayas and the Arabian peninsula and his UK tour will see him reveal the lessons he has learnt on the road.

Levison said: “The Art Of Exploration presents me with a great opportunity to reveal the life lessons I have learnt and how we can all benefit from applying the philosophy of travel and the Art of Exploration to our normal everyday routines, so we can achieve a positive mindset and get things done.

“We all have our own journeys on which we have to travel – whether that is to the corners of the globe or by balancing day-to-day life. It is a challenge for us all at some point and I hope I can inspire the audience to embark on their own personal journeys.”

JESSIE WARE RELISHES ‘GRAND AND SOPHISTICATED’ SHOW AT ICONIC VENUE

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Almost two years to the date since releasing the album What’s Your Pleasure?, Jessie Ware will be bringing her classic pop vibes to Halifax next month.

The Brit Award-nominated singer-songwriter opens the three-week season of live music at the town’s historic The Piece Hall with What’s Your Pleasure? Live on Sunday June 19.

And Jessie’s raring to go out and have ‘a lot of fun on stage’.

“I’m so ready to go and perform What’s Your Pleasure?, and I hope other people are ready to watch it,” she said.

“I’ve had a good look at The Piece Hall online, and it’s like a lovely, grand stately home – which is very me.

“I’m going to be playing a lot of tents and academies this summer, so somewhere like this really stands out. It feels grand and sophisticated, and I can pretend I’m in Downton Abbey or something like that.

“It’s really exciting and I just hope it doesn’t rain too much!”

While Halifax will be a new box ticked on Jessie’s live show roster, she’s a big fan of Yorkshire gig-goers.

“I love the crowds in the north – they are the best. They’re warm, they embrace you, they’re loud and outrageous, and that’s what you want… I love being able to interact with fans.

“I’ve played Leeds and Manchester, and hopefully people who missed out on tickets there will come along, or if they came, will want to come again.

“The Piece Hall is such a different venue, so you’ll get a different experience from it.

“Coming into gigs like this – that’s when you know it’s summer.

“Outdoors shows are always something else. You get more stuck in! If someone has come out, potentially getting rained on for a few hours, to hear your music, they deserve a lot from you.”

What’s Your Pleasure? Live has been two years in the making, with the album released in June 2020 in the midst of Covid-19 lockdowns, when live music was a distant dream for fans – as kitchen discos filled the gigs’ gap in their lives.

But the album became Jessie’s highest charting release to date and reinforced her reputation as one of the strongest vocalists in UK music, following previous acclaimed studio albums, Devotion (2012), Tough Love (2014), and Glasshouse (2017).

What’s Your Pleasure? is such a special record for so many people, and it’s very much a record to dance to and be inspired by – so to perform it in beautiful surroundings like The Piece Hall will be really special.

“I make records to be able to perform them, especially this one, and we have had to wait so long to get out turn with What’s Your Pleasure?. The anticipation has been killing me.

“The album took on a different life when it was released, than it was intended to have. It was played in people’s homes, in their kitchen discos instead of at gigs.

“But in a way, that now makes it even more significant to be able to take it out there in a live setting, and certain songs will be great to take out on stage.

Remember Where You Are is one that has to be shouted at the top of your lungs. Kiss Of Life was a duet with Kylie and is so much fun, it’ll be amazing on stage. Obviously, if you can get Kylie to Halifax, that would be excellent!”

While it’s unlikely Kylie will be stepping out at The Piece Hall – a though not entirely impossible, given that the venue’s new promoters were responsible for the Australian pop princess playing Scarborough Open Air Theatre in 2019 – Jessie is impressed with the acts who will be following in her footsteps this summer.

As the first act in the new for 2022 partnership between Cuffe and Taylor and The Piece Hall Trust, Jessie hopes she ‘can do Halifax proud to set the tone for the rest of an excellent season of music’.

Running through the other acts playing The Piece Hall through June and July, including the likes of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Tom Grennan and Nile Rodgers & CHIC, she could even plan a return trip to join revellers in the in the stunning open-air courtyard.

“It sounds like The Piece Hall is going to be the place to be from the line-up, it’s great!” Jessie said.

“My top pick? Nile Rodgers & CHIC – always. They’re phenomenal. Paloma Faith always puts on a great show, so I’d go for that one too.

“And Tom Jones, of course! We had him on the podcast and he is so funny, and his voice just goes on and on.”

While live music has been off the agenda, Jessie was able to develop her award-winning Table Manners podcast, which features Jessie and her mum Lennie interviewing famous faces over dinner – including the likes of Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa and Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall.

And Jessie hopes podcast fans will be keen to find out more about her music with the live gigs this year.

“Of course the music shows are different to the live podcast shows we’ve done – I can’t go out at Halifax and chat about food,” she laughed.

“But the podcast has given me a confidence that people are happy to hear me in their ears, talking what is, to be honest, quite a lot of faff.

“There is a different audience between the music and the podcast, but there is also a real crossover – where they all just feel like friends.

“It’s exciting winning people over from the two different sides, people who’ve loved the music and then come over to the podcast, and vice versa.”

Jessie Ware’s What’s Your Pleasure? Live at the The Piece Hall is presented by Cuffe and Taylor and The Piece Hall Trust. Tickets are on sale now from ticketmaster.co.uk

JANE MCDONALD PREPARES TO CELEBRATE HRH THE QUEEN WITH SPECIAL JUBILEE CONCERT

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Jane McDonald may well be the honorary Queen of Yorkshire, but she can’t deny her excitement ahead of headlining a special concert celebrating Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this summer.

“If there is one thing, one presence, one person who has been consistent, throughout my life – all of our lives really – it’s Queen Elizabeth… and I am so honoured to be celebrating her,” said Jane.

Yorkshire’s Platinum Jubilee Concert will see a sea of red, white and blue take over at Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Saturday, June 4 – with Jane flying the flag for her beloved home county, alongside a host of special guests.

“What an occasion to be celebrating just how much work she has done over so many years,” said Wakefield-born Jane said.

“We have all grown up with her, as individuals, and as a nation, and she is still there, at 96-years-old everything she possibly can in her role, her duty, and that really should be celebrated.

“And I’m very much a Yorkshire girl – you know I’m always banging on about it – so to be doing this concert in Scarborough, in Yorkshire, where I have such a wonderful, loyal fan base is so lovely.

“The warmth of a home audience, as well as everyone being there to celebrate, well – you can’t fail with that.”

While Jane’s heart has always been firmly in her home county, it was travelling the world as a cruise ship singer, featured on BBC docusoap The Cruise back in 1998 which made her a household name.

Since winning the nation’s hearts, Jane became a regular face on TV, on the Loose Women panel and performing at no fewer than three Royal Variety Shows. She’s released 10 studio albums and has toured extensively including sell-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall and the London Palladium, as well as The MGM in Las Vegas.

Now with nostalgia in the air, as she celebrates HRH The Queen 70-year reign, Jane will be taking a trip down Memory Lane when she heads to the coastal resort too – revisiting childhood holidays with her family.

“Scarborough has a special place in my heart, it holds such treasured memories for me,” Jane said. “We loved it as a family.

“Looking back, I sometimes think we went there because it was the only place my dad’s van would get to! But that didn’t matter, it was magical.

“It used to take forever to get there, so long, but that was part of the fun too. And it’s a wonder I’ve got a voice when I think about it… The windows of the van were always shut and my mum and dad would be smoking the whole way there, the van was full of cigarette smoke!

“But once we arrived, it was such freedom.

“I loved the fair, although I was sick after the rides – I was pathetic. I wanted to go on the rides, then was sick when I got off.

“And the beaches, they’re stunning – it’s ‘Scarbados’ isn’t it. That whole coast is beautiful, and has these great coastal towns, Bridlington, Filey, Flamborough. They’re all great.

“The other things I remember, the café that sold milky coffee – so milky they’d be cold, before the days of cappuccinos…

“And you know what it was really all about? Spending time with your family.

“We didn’t have phones and tablets, we’d just run and run on the beach. I feel sorry for children of today actually. They haven’t got that same ‘space’ we had, that head space to just be free, to run, to laugh, to dream…”

But being on home ‘sand’ for a right Royal knees up – Jane’s living the Yorkshire dream as she prepares for the one-night only concert, where she will be joined by a host of special guests.

“It’s going to be amazing. A really rousing night, full of song,” she explained. “I’ve been going through what we are going to do with my musical director.

“We’ve got to keep it under wraps, we want it to be a big surprise! But what I can say is it will be a real sing-along event – bring your voices, and it’ll be emotional, without a doubt. A good old party.

“Of course, it’s a celebration of The Queen’s life, but also all our lives and life in general after the past couple of years. A celebration of life as we know it.”

Yorkshire’s Platinum Jubilee Concert is part of a stellar line-up for Scarborough OAT’s 2022 season with other headliners including Bryan Adams, Christina Aguilera, a-ha, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe, Lewis Capaldi, Elbow, Sam Fender, Crowded House, Tom Jones, Ru Paul’s Werq The World, Simply Red, Tears For Fears, The Script, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons and Westlife.

EXCLUSIVE LAST NIGHT OF THE PROMS CONCERT WITH ALFIE BOE & JOHN OWEN-JONES

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

International singing sensation and Lancashire’s most famous tenor Alfie Boe is to headline a special Last Night of The Proms concert in Lytham.

Taking place in the grounds of historic Lytham Hall on Sunday August 28, the exclusive show will see Fleetwood-born Alfie perform alongside a full orchestra while the concert will be opened by special guest and fellow Broadway and West End star John Owen-Jones.

Last Night of The Proms is presented by Lytham Festival directors Cuffe & Taylor and follows the success of their WonderHall festival last summer which saw £153,000 donated to the continued restoration of Lytham Hall from the Russell Watson Proms concert. All money raised from Alfie’s spectacular will also be gifted to the Grade 1 listed venue.

Tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday from www.lythamfestival.com

Lytham Festival Presents Last Night of The Proms will be the first time Alfie has performed on the Lancashire coast since his sell-out Homecoming show at Fleetwood Town FC in 2018.

Speaking about his return, Alfie said: “I cannot wait to get back to perform on homeground. As a proud Lancastrian it will be very special for me and to stand in front of an audience which I am sure will have many familiar faces is just the icing on the cake.

“This will be a brilliant night in a magical setting and I look forward to seeing everyone there.”

Alfie’s unmistakable voice has cemented him as Britain’s biggest selling and best loved vocalist of his generation.

A hugely successful recording artist, he has achieved two Number 1 albums and amassed multi-million, multi-platinum record sales. Alfie has conquered the world’s greatest stages and arenas from leading the cast of Les Misérables as Valjean in both the West End and Broadway, the 25th Anniversary Concert and most recently the London Staged Concert, to taking the lead role of Jimmy in The Who’s Classic Quadrophenia, while also wowing audiences in theatre performances including La Bohème, Finding Neverland and Carousel.

Alfie will be joined on the evening by special guest and fellow tenor John Owen-Jones. John too is famous for his portrayal of Jean Valjean in Les Misérables in the West End and on Broadway – and still holds claim to being the youngest actor in history to have played the role. He has also played the title role in The Phantom of The Opera more than any other actor in the show’s West End history.

Peter Taylor said: “We have had the pleasure of working with Alfie on numerous concerts and tours over the years so we are delighted to have secured him for our 2022 Last Night of the Proms at Lytham Hall.

“He is beloved globally but the people of Lancashire and particularly our coastal towns feel a natural closeness to their locally born star.

“It is also exciting to have John Owen-Jones on the bill too. John is a wonderful talent and to have both Alfie and John performing on the same stage on the same evening will make this special for everyone.

Lytham Hall is managed by the Heritage Trust for the North West and all profit from Last Night of The Proms will be used for further restoration and projects at the heritage venue.
General manager Peter Anthony said: “We are absolutely thrilled Cuffe and Taylor are bringing yet another world-class artist to our fantastic Lytham Hall.

“The money raised by the Russell Watson concert was an incredible boost to enable our ongoing projects so to know we now have the benefit of an Alfie Boe concert to look forward to this summer is just wonderful.”

Lytham Festival Presents Last Night of The Proms is a picnic proms-style event.

Tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday from www.lythamfestival.com

FIRST AID KIT JOIN STELLAR LINE-UP FOR LIVE AT THE PIECE HALL 2022

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Swedish alt-folk duo First Aid Kit have been added to the sensational headline line-up for Live at The Piece Hall 2022.

Sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg have been wowing audiences around the world for more than a decade and they now head to The Piece Hall in Halifax on Thursday June 23.

Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday March 25 via ticketmaster.co.uk

First Aid Kit join the likes of Duran Duran, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Paloma Faith, Nile Rodgers and CHIC, Tom Grennan and Paul Weller among this summer’s headliners to perform in the historic Yorkshire venue’s open-air courtyard.

Hailing from a southern suburb of Stockholm, Klara and Johanna began composing songs as teenagers.

They released two studio albums with Wichita Records – The Big Black And The Blue in 2010 and The Lion’s Roar in 2012 which featured breakthrough single Emmylou. Rolling Stone quickly named it one of its ‘Singles of the Year’.

They followed their early success with 2014’s Stay Gold and, four years later, Ruins – which hit Number 3 in the UK album charts and featured the stunning singles It’s A Shame and Fireworks. NME’s four-star review of Ruins stated: “It is a lush, expansive release that uses the siblings’ uncanny blood harmony to full effect, elevating their low-key folk songs into something majestic.”

Twice nominated for Best International Group at the BRIT Awards, Klara and Johanna last year released their wondrous live tribute to Leonard Cohen – Who By Fire – which again won widespread critical acclaim.

First Aid Kit’s sensational live shows – at which they are backed by a full band – are famed for being emotionally-charged affairs, packed with incredible songs, astonishing harmonies and singalong anthems.

This year they hit stages across Europe, USA, Canada as well as festival appearances at Glastonbury and Bristol Sounds.

Support on the night comes from fast-rising Dublin country pop star CMAT, aka singer-songwriter Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson.

CMAT’s debut album If My Wife New I’d Be Dead was released only last month. It instantly topped the Irish album chart and won massive acclaim with Hot Press magazine rating the album as “undoubtedly one of the most thrilling Irish pop debuts of the century”.

First Aid Kit’s Halifax show is presented by Cuffe and Taylor and The Piece Hall Trust. Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “First Aid Kit have wowed audiences around the world for more than a decade and we are so excited to be welcoming the fantastically talented Klara and Johanna here to our courtyard.

“We have a packed summer of live music ahead of us here at The Piece Hall with truly brilliant headline artists. It’s going to be our biggest and best year ever!”
