Summer 2019 preview: 5 must-see gigs in Brighton

Some of the UK’s biggest bands are heading to the seaside later this year.

Kicking off a summer of awesome music, Catfish and The Bottlemen will stop off at Brighton Centre on Thursday 2nd May as part of their new UK arena tour.

The gig closely follows the release of the Welsh indie band’s third album The Balance at the end of April.

Back with his new album You Know I Know, The X Factor star Olly Murs plays Brighton Centre on Monday 27th May.

Now firmly established in his red chair as a judge on The Voice, Olly has five multi-platinum albums under his belt, 4 #1 UK albums, 4 #1 UK singles and 6 #1 airplay tracks.

Later that month, British pop rock band The Vamps hit Brighton Centre on Friday 31st May, joined by pop-rock trio New Hope Club and rising star HRVY.

The Vamps have picked up over 2 billion streams globally and have 8.4 million monthly listeners and 1.7 million followers on Spotify!

Supported by special guests, Bloc Party make a triumphant return on Saturday 29th June, when they’ll play their seminal debut album Silent Alarm live and in full at Brighton Centre.

Silent Alarm was released in 2005 to widespread critical and commercial success, achieving multi-platinum sales and earning Bloc Party a Mercury Prize nomination.

As we reach the height of summer, who better to see than The Beach Boys? The iconic American band play Brighton Centre on Saturday 6th July.

Captained by Mike Love, The Beach Boys still play an astoundingly busy schedule of concerts, averaging 150 shows a year!
