Gigs Galore


I don’t know about you, but here at CultureCalling we’ve seriously missed our weekly fix of live music over the last year.  Whilst we’ve dipped our toes into the myriad of streamed concerts there’s nothing quite like the feeling of sound reverberating off the sweat-drenched walls of the local pub; standing in a mud-soaked field shoulder-to-shoulder with thousands of other joyous festival-goers, or simply relaxing in the open-air with your picnic box swigging down PIMMS on a warm summer’s evening. 
News of 2021 gigs are being released fast and furiously. We know some people are still a little cautious about leaving the house let alone sharing space with hundreds of thousands of other fans, tickets are selling out and there’s much excitement about what’s instore.
Here’s our round-up for this week...
Fatboy Slims announces his return of his hugely immersive In the Round Tour, We’ve Come A Long Way Together.

The ‘We’ve Come A Long Long Way Together’ tour will see Fatboy Slim create one the UK’s biggest dance floors turning our favourite arenas into unique night club experiences.  Fatboy Slim established his particular flavour of In The Round experience at the end of 2016 which followed with a full headline arena tour in 2019. 
Fast forward to 2020 when staying home became the new normal, Norman Cook in the land of lockdown took to the online streaming phenomenon, inviting fans to join him live from his home.  He released a series of 20 Lockdown mixes every Friday during the summer (listen here).  In his usual relentless pursuit of fun, he also released his personal Back To Mine after hours groove collection as part of legendary and much-loved mix series. He then along with Idris Elba live streamed a very special At Home With set from his kitchen along with a zoom audience in aid of the charity MIND.  
The winter months saw Norman keeping warm at his much-loved Big Beach Café in Brighton. As a DJ, songwriter, bassist, art curator and father who’s been seen playing clubs, stadiums, festivals, fields, boats, and Brighton’s i360; it’s time for Fatboy Slim to don that Hawaiian shirt, kick off his shoes and reunite us all again unite under one roof raving.
