Jill Jackson returns to the Arches on Wed 25th April.
Following on from a slew of acoustic dates at some of Britain’s best loved venues, Jill Jackson has announced her biggest UK tour to date for May 2012.
The Paisley-born singer-songwriter released her debut album Back to Zero back in 2011 after splitting as lead singer of UK band Speedway. Since then she has played at numerous festivals, sold out numerous UK dates and attracted attention from influential devotees in both the music and television industry.
Her new release Getaway Driver is an album of autobiographical nature, small stories that add up to one big story – with the exception of title track Getaway Driver which tells the story of Jill robbing a bank…
This special album launch night includes:
Free glass of bubbly on entry
Exclusive preview of the album Getaway Driver
An intimate performance from Jill
Q&A with Jill
Exclusive signed limited edition Getaway Driver bag
Access to the aftershow party
Please enter through Midland Street
Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
