Well done, we survived January! Some of you without even drinking which is rather impressive. But, now we're well into the year, why not look ahead for what 2024 has to offer and secure yourself some tickets to see some incredible live music? But you may be asking, who is touring, where are they playing, where can I get tickets? (on Skiddle, duh).

Well, you don't have to worry about any of that, as Skiddle is here with our February edition of the Gig List, where we scour our gig directory and pull out some of the very best gigs happening in the coming weeks and months with tickets still available. 

There are huge shows from classic acts and icons like Grace Jones, The Orb, and The Jesus and Mary Chain; awesome intimate album launch shows from Yard Act and Nadine Shah; and some of the coolest rappers in the game, like The Pharcyde and Sonnyjim, heading out on UK tours. So scroll down and take a look at the latest edition of the Skiddle Gig List below and make sure to secure your tickets before they sell out!

The Jesus And Mary Chain: 40 Years

When: Saturday 23rd March 2024

Where: Albert Hall in Manchester

One of the most influential bands of their generation and beyond, The Jesus and Mary Chain mark their 40th anniversary in 2024 with a new album, Glasgow Eyes, and a huge tour to accompany it, with one of - in our opinion - the best nights being their descent into the iconic ground of Manchester's Albert Hall. The first night sold out almost instantly, and this extra date is going to be doing the same; grab them whilst you still can and experience one of the greatest and most unique misfits of alt-rock live. tickets below!

Legendary American Hip-Hop group The Pharcyde will be travelling across the pond for a run of shows with the Lords of the Underground that will bring their classic singles like 'Runnin', 'Passin Me By', and 'Drop' to an adorning British crowd. Our pick of the lot is the London date at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, mainly due to how amazing the room is. 

Known for infusing jazz, soul, and funk samples throughout their catalogue, the group, along with other hip-hop groups/artists such as De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, and Souls Of Mischief, created a whole new lane within the hip-hop genre that crossed over to the mainstream and is seen widely across the genre today.
