ENGINE SHED LINE UP GETS LONGER AND LONGER

 

This week will see two of the UK’s best known bands play at the University of Lincoln’s Engine Shed.

 

British punk rockers The Damned will continue their 30th anniversary tour at the Engine Shed on Thursday 7th December. Then Babyshambles will perform on Friday 8th December.

 

The West Coast and Dark Arts tour has already taken The Damned around the USA, gigging in Hollywood and Las Vegas.

 

Members of The Damned, Captain Sensible, Pinch, Dave Vanian, Stu West and Monty Oxymoron, will perform some of their biggest hits as part of the 25-date tour.

 

Babyshambles are led by former Libertines front man and tabloids’ favourite Pete Doherty. Since the band was formed in 2004 they have achieved two top ten singles including their first big hit Kilamangiro.

 

Supporting Babyshambles in Lincoln will be upcoming band The Holloways, already a media favourite, whose debut album ‘So, this is Great Britain?’ was released last month.

 

The two bands are among an impressive line up of future bands to play at the Engine Shed including Pete Doherty’s former Libertines partner Carl Barat appearing with his band Dirty Pretty Things next week.

 

Both gigs are for over 18s only and doors will open at 7pm on the night.
