The Skids

THE SKIDS  40th Anniversary Tour.  

The Skids  will be performing live in concert at Live Venue, in Preston Guild Hall on Sunday 21st January 2018 at 7.00pm.

The Skids formed in 1977 in their home town of Dunfermline, Scotland by Richard Jobson, Stuart Adamson, Bill Simpson & Tom Kellichan. After releasing an independent single the band were played by John Peel, supported The Clash in concert and then were signed to Virgin Records in 1978.

The 40th Anniversary Tour will feature Richard Jobson, Bill Simpson, Mike Baillie, Bruce Watson & Jamie Watson.

“Memories fade, but some linger for a reason. The Skids was the definitive part of my early life. A brilliant adventure into the world of creativity and adulthood”, reflected Richard Jobson recently, “ I was a kid when I joined the band in 1977 – 16 years old”

Don’t over think it – Just do it. Enjoy every minute of it. Play the songs like it might be the last time. Give it everything. And then…….there’s the new stuff!!! The beginning of something new rather than the end of something old.”

Please note for events in LiVe (venue), the time stated on the website is the DOORS time.

This is a standing only gig.
