De Montfort Hall announce the first acts for Outdoor Summer Concerts
The first acts have been announced for De Montfort Hall’s outdoor concerts this summer.
The gigs will take place during the last two weeks of August and feature Kaiser Chiefs, The Vaccines and The Twang on Sunday 18 August with Years & Years and Jax Jones on Sunday 25 August.
De Montfort Hall general manager Antony Flint said: “These are exactly the sort of larger scale events that we’ve been aiming to bring to Leicester for some years now, so I’m really pleased that all of our planning and work has started to pay off”.
After major works to improve the outdoor infrastructure last summer, De Montfort Hall’s gardens can now host large-scale concerts much more easily than before, with a capacity of up to 6,000 people.
City Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby said: “We are delighted that following the capital investment we made in the gardens last year, they will be back in full use this summer hosting a number of larger scale concerts that will undoubtedly enhance our cultural offer”.
Advance tickets for Sunday 18 August Kaiser Chiefs, The Vaccines and The Twang, are priced at £48.50 and go on sale at 10am Tuesday 5 March.
Advance tickets for Sunday 25 August – Years and Years and Jax Jones, are priced at £48.50 and go on sale at 10am Wednesday 6 March.
Details of other acts performing in the outdoor summer programme at De Montfort Hall’s will be announced in due course.
