BIG COUNTRY & SKIDS UNITE! Paisley announcement


Scotland has given the world many iconic bands – among them and currently riding high on renewed fervour for their music are Dunfermline’s multi-million selling BIG COUNTRY and U2/Green Day - ‘endorsed’ SKIDS. Both bands are passionate performers of spirited music, woven through with words that matter. Yet, Big Country and Skids have never performed together on the same bill. That day has now, unbelievably, arrived!

Originally due to play on 5th August to benefit Loud n Proud rock school in Paisley, SKIDS *and* BIG COUNTRY now have the opportunity to put their combined weight behind the charity, one with which they are immensely proud to be involved with.

A spokesperson for both bands said: “Someone happened to notice that each of the bands was playing a show for the charity and made the point that, by both bands performing on the one date, a historic combination of both – for the first time ever in Scotland – could really make a difference to Loud n Proud, a very, very worthwhile cause. It was as simple as that “.

However, logistics and previous commitments mean that unfortunately, Skids will reluctantly have to withdraw from the August date and will now perform on the existing Big Country date in Paisley – on Friday 17th November.

Promoter LNP sincerely apologised to everyone that had already bought tickets for August 5th “but the chance of bringing these two iconic bands together will be such a massive boost to Loud n Proud, we’d have been mad to not grab the opportunity with both hands. These are passionate performers who are passionate about ‘giving back’ to the community. It is going to be an absolutely massive day! “

Tickets already purchased for 5th August and 17th of November will be honoured and of course if you now can’t make the rescheduled date then we sincerely apologise – you’ll be offered a full refund. We ask you contact where you got your ticket from, arrange them to be returned and a refund will be made.

New tickets for the historic joint BIG COUNTRY and SKIDS Paisley show will be on sale on Monday 26th June at 10am (UK) . Limited availability for these as you will imagine so please get them early to avoid disappointment. Follow the link to for event and ticket link news.

Everything LNP Promotions do is to promote live music and events in Paisley. All events raise funds for Paisley based music charity - Loud 'n Proud​; existing to help nurture the next generation of Scottish musicians in their Rock and Pop School, based in Paisley.
