WHAT YOU’VE MISSED THIS YEAR

CILLIRION
Fish era Marillion

S

Fugazi at 40

The best Fish Era Marillion band around, these packed us out last time with Script for a Jester’s Tear.

Cillirion will return with a smörgåsbord of Fish-Era Marillion classics to The Three Tuns along with a full rendition of the iconic album Fugazi to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

ROCK BOTTOM

Rock Bottom are easily the best UFO and Schenker tribute out there.

RUSS TIPPINS

Russ should need no introduction; easily one of the best guitarists around and always brings some surprises to The Tuns.

Led Zeppelin, Dick Dale, Bowie, Hendrix and so many more seem effortless to Russ. Not one to miss.

RIGID DIGITS


The best Stiff Little Fingers covers around. These guys are old Tuns favourites, and guaranteed to bring the noise.

Perry, James, Jim and Jamie launch their band here at The Tuns, and it’s going to be an extravaganza!

FANTASTIC BAND!

WEST BROOK & SWAMP TEA

Proper swamp blues & rock from West Brook, Bad Bob Bates, John Dawson and Martin Bell.

Their Tuns debut was phenomenal!

Six decades of The Rolling Stones, bringing all the classics and a few less known gems too. Always a good show.

TWISTER

And once again Twister are using the Three Tuns as their warm up gig before embarking on their tour. A musical and visual extravaganza!

The place was bursting at the seams last time they were here, and that was a Wednesday! Let’s see what a Friday looks like!
