31st October 2013 – 1st November 2013
Location: O2 Academy
Jake Bugg, the fast-rising hitmaker from Nottingham comes to O2 Academy Glasgow following the successful release of his self-titled debut album.
Young singer-songwriter Jake Bugg has announced that he will be embarking on his biggest UK tour so far, beginning in October at Bournemouth BIC.
After standing out as one of the most exciting new UK acts to emerge from 2012, his UK tour will cap what’s set to be an incredibly successful year for him. Jake has been nominated for Best Breakthrough Act at the Brits 2013, and has picked up another two nods at the NME Awards for Best Solo Act and the prestigious Best Album.
Somehow, Bugg has managed to effortlessly straddle the gap between authenticity and mainstream appeal; his self-titled debut album has already been certified platinum in the UK. The album is 14 songs, clocking in at under 40 minutes, that belie his eighteen years. Sharp, observant and honest, they inhabit a world no other new UK act is currently operating in. It opens with recent single “Lightning Bolt”, a scorching blues number with his Telecaster to the fore. New single “Two Fingers” follows with its swaggering chorus, whilst the likes of “Country Song” and “Broken” are more reflective.
A big star at Radio 1 and 6 Music, Jake has made appearances on Radio 2 and on Radio 4’s flagship culture show Front Row earlier this year. High profile features have included the Guardian, NME front cover, Sunday Times Culture, Q, MOJO and more.
He also recently announced he’ll be appearing at the Reading/Leeds Festival this summer, and will be supporting The Stone Roses for their summer UK tour.
