Jake Bugg will play a one-off show at Leeds first direct arena this October – Presale tickets


Indie sensation Jake Bugg will headline special one off show at first direct arena.

Festival favourite Jake Bugg will be bringing his blend of indie, rock and folk to the first direct arena this October in a unique event in conjunction with the arena’s sponsors first direct. Joined by special guests Hudson Taylor and the Leeds based Skinny Living, the gig heralds 25 years of the bank and the venue’s first birthday.

Releasing his first album (which went to number one in the UK album charts) at the age of 18, Bugg’s star continues to rise and rise in the indie scene. His first direct arena show follows a summer of playing the UK’s biggest festivals (Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds to name but a few) and the release of his second album Shangri La last year.

Bugg has toured with the likes of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, and will tour North American arenas in the autumn with The Black Keys, firmly cementing his status as one of the best live acts of the year.

Expect to hear hits like Two Fingers, Seen It All, and Taste It, as well as What Doesn’t Kill You and new single There’s A Beast and We All Feed It.
