We think it’s fair to say that the famous NME Radar Tour that rolls around the UK each year can often be hit (La Roux, Friendly Fires) or indeed miss (The Chapman Family, Towers Of London). We were surprised and most pleased to hear the news, announced a few weeks back, that this September/October’s showcase will be bringing us several of The Recommender’s favourites.
It’s very much something to look forward to and only strengthens the belief that The Recommender blog has it’s finger on the jugular of the new music scene, having blogged several of these artists months ago. Nice.
The highlight will of course be the majestic Marina & The Diamonds with her showmanship, but Yes Giantess will also be well worth catching. Headliners and sweet melody-makers, Golden Silvers, are more established with their debut album, True Romance, having already been released. The unknown live act will be SXSW hits, Local Natives, which we blogged about back here.
We think that this is the strongest ever Radar Tour line up from the regular NME shows. We hope you agree. We suggest that you grab those tickets whilst you can…see you down the front.
