Rock City in Nottingham plays host to Ash’s latest tour on Monday, December 12.

2016 sees the 20th anniversary of Northern Ireland trio Ash’s debut number 1 album 1977 and to commemorate this the band have announced a special run of shows where the album will be played in its entirety and in sequence Speaking about the anniversary itself and the live dates the band said: “We’re as excited as we are in disbelief to announce the 20th anniversary tour of 1977.

“Some of these songs have grown with us throughout those years; others have the ability to transport us mentally and emotionally back to that crazy formative year of 1995 to 96. These gigs are going to be a trip, trip, trip!”

The band members have been working in New York at their Atomic Heart Studios writing new songs for a follow up to their 2015 album Kablammo!
