Announced tomorrow. Anyone got any ideas who's doing it? I reckon either Crystal castles or Glassvegas will headline.
i doubt glasvegas will do it - having only just completed a large UK tour themselves in December. could be crystal castles. How about the dreaded Foals? or Santogold? or Courteeners?
The Cribs would have sold out most of the venues the tour played this year on their own. If not them then Late Of The Pier, possibly. Would an American band, especially one in the middle of working on new stuff, really come over for a 3/4 week UK tour? White Lies would be a decent bet for a place on the bill.
I would imagine.
with White Lies too. Florence would be a good bet. Would Rolo Tomassi or Danananana be totally mental to suggest? NME have been all over them in recent months.
Ladyhawke, Little Boots and Yo Majesty.
Twisted Wheel and Detroit Social Club are another two who I reckon could be part of it, i'm hoping so as I want to see both of them again
white lies, glasvegas, friendly fires and florence and the machine
white lies and glasvegas are already doing a joint tour this month and next?
has to be: crystal castles, santogold, gaslight anthem and rolo Tomassi
lets do this for a tenner. in?
But Gaslight Anthem are already touring mainland Europe in February, which probably rules them out.
I'd fully expect there to be at least three out of the four names correctly guessed in the posts above, though, even though some of them have already been on another NME tour bill this year.
the line-up leaked a couple of days before the official announcement...
it's bound to be shite anyway.
it's leaked by the looks of this
the above are all merely suggestions. It doesn't too much brain to work out how the NME thinks...
all yours are wrong for a start - so, your brains not that good
If not Glasvegas than CC.
Glasvegas, Friendly Fires, White Lies and Florence And The Machine play the NME Awards Tour in January. Dates are:
Liverpool Uni (29) Glasgow Academy (30) Newcastle Academy (Feb 1) Sheffield Academy (3) Birmingham Academy (4) Manchester Academy (6) Leeds Academy (8) Lincoln Engine (10) Nottingham Rock (11) Norwich UEA (12) Cardiff Uni (14).
Bristol Academy (15) Brighton Dome (16) Brixton Academy (21). On sale Friday.
Lineup isn't great, shame about no Portsmouth/ Southampton date would have been good to see Friendly Fires and White though
The list of dates on NME.com includes Oxford (Feb 17), Portsmouth (19) and Brighton (20) as well, but without the Manchester date above.
