Live Music In York

Think Floyd

Think Floyd live at the Grand Opera House
Wednesday 15 March 2017
Where: Grand Opera House, York
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd's first release, Think Floyd's brand new production for 2017 features music from all 15 Pink Floyd albums. From The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, through Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, to The Endless River.

The production is backed by an impressive laser light show and a dedicated team of sound and lighting engineers, and with over 20 years experience faithfully recreating the legendary sound of Pink Floyd live on stage, it’s no wonder Think Floyd are regarded as the Definitive Pink Floyd Experience.

Fibbers: Glass Caves, Faux Pas, Corella, In Sulks
Saturday 18 March 2017
“GLASS CAVES quickly became a word of mouth phenomenon. Each song seemed to be carefully honed, with the band’s craftsmanship allowing them to gradually sand down rough edges, refining their voice on their travels” – Clash Music

This is one heckuva show, especially with FAUX PAS who recently stuffed Fibbers to the brim on their own account – “energetic performance provides an exciting and refreshing twist to the indie rock sound we know and love!” – J.A.M MAGAZINE

Manchester’s CORELLA (influences – Bombay Bicycle Club / Little Comets / Paul Simon / Foals / Hendrix / Maccabees) have a positive vibe with powerful vocals, funky guitars and energetic drums containing elements of funk and pop.

First up IN SULKS from Sheffield are “channelling rebellious teenage angst into musical endeavours to pass time until we are all sucked into the inevitable parasitic void that is death”. Not in to that? How about upbeat indie-punk with elements of ska/reggae to “move yo body”.
Ticket: £8 Doors: 7.30pm Age:14+

York Proms 2017
Sunday 9 July 2017
Where: Yorkshire Museum Gardens
Rebecca Newman / Daniel Koek / Tre Amici
A rousing picnic concert in the heart of medieval York.

York is the kind of city that leaves a lasting impression on all her visitors because of the wealth of history, architecture and culture that the locals are lucky enough to live right on top of!

York has a number of festivals each year, which incorporate music, arts, food, comedy and more. However, York didn't have its very own summer proms event, which is a central feature of the entertainment calendar for many other towns and cities. After months of groundwork, The York Proms team are excited to announce the date and venue for the first York Proms. The event will take place on the evening of Sunday 9th July in Museum Gardens.

Expect a show filled with some of the greatest, and most popular, classical music ever written. Bring your picnic basket and your flags to help us kick off a brand new event in York in style! Earlybird Tickets are available from www.yorkproms.com
