Paolo Nutini, Charli XCX To Play Revive Live Tour Dates
Paolo Nutini, Charli XCX and Sleaford Mods are among the acts playing dates as part of the Revive Live Tour series of shows.
The tour will see headline artists performing special one-off shows to highlight the importance of grassroots music venues. Paolo Nutini will perform at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, Charli XCX will also play a show, following her Glastonbury appearance, Southampton’s 1865 will host a special Glastonbury-warm-up-show by Lianne La Havas, The Amazons will play a hometown show at Reading’s Face Bar and, postponed from its previous January date, The Coral will head to Blackpool’s Bootleg Social. Having played Nottingham’s 10,000-capacity Motorpoint Arena in 2021 Sleaford Mods have chosen the city’s 100-capacity Chameleon Arts Cafe for their Revive Live gig.
The shows are among over 200 Revive Live concerts that are due to take place nationwide between June and September. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (17 June) at 10am BST here.

Sleaford Mods frontman Jason Williamson explained why the band were keen to get involved: “Independent venues were the only places we played for the first two years of Sleaford Mods.
“They hold the histories and stories of all the great bands that have passed through so playing at these places isn’t just about your gig, it’s also about experiencing the venue and its particular piece of history.
“Andrew [Fearn] and I met at The Chameleon and played our first gig, and many more after, at The Chameleon. Without it we wouldn’t be where we are now. It encouraged us to never give up and never lied to us. It’s a realism we can’t lose.”
