This will be the band’s second full UK tour after supporting the Kings Of Leon earlier in the summer. The tour took in arenas around the UK and Europe, including two nights at London’s O2 Arena. They also completed their own club tour and an appearance at the Hard Rock Calling Festival.
The Weeks released their debut UK album ‘Dear Bo Jackson’ on July 15th to much acclaim. The album is a swell of contemporary Southern rock, soul and greasy guitars which all make up The Weeks undeniable gutsy sound, it is a truthful tale of modern Southern life, full of hope despite often punishing circumstances.
“While retaining their pop sensibility, the influence of country and soul shine through… their most ambitious and polished record to date” - You Hear This

As well as opening support from BABYPINK
Hailing from the dizzying heights of Droitwich Spa in the leafy heart of the West Midlands, babypink (formerly known as Sugar) call the same town their home as forerunners of the recent B-Town movement, Peace. Emotive, engaging and completely considered, these are four under twenty year olds producing music not only belying their years but the parameters of the current Birmingham scene.
Babypink draw from influences from grunge to britpop; driving drum beats underpin a sleazy bassline and pedal-enhanced guitars which at times even venture into psychedelia. Intricate and intriguing, the vocal of enigmatic frontman Andrew Brooks binds the building blocks and indeed the band together as live, the performance is even more impressive.
With a striking musical repertoire documenting their explosive three month progression, babypink have already shared a stage with Superfood, Wolf Alice and Jaws.
