The View have selected a host of emerging acts to support them on their upcoming UK headline tour – find all the details below.
The Scottish band have teamed up with promotors, independent record label and new music champions This Feeling to give 21 different artists “their moment in the spotlight” at the shows in England and Wales.
Per a press release, the chosen openers “cover the rock ‘n’ roll spectrum” and include indie group Shambolics, indie-soul artist Ruby J, singer-songwriter Lissy Taylor and indie-pop band The Lilacs.
The likes of Jonny Ash, Twin City, Cruz, Ben Walker, Oscar Corney and Spangled will also join The View on the road. Ben Walker will open all five shows in Scotland, with Daytime TV set to join as support in Aberdeen and Dundee.
In a statement, The View frontman Kyle Falconer said: “It’s great that we’re at a stage where we’ve got the opportunity to help young local talent. I look forward to sharing a stage with them.”
We’re excited to announce loads of support acts for our upcoming UK tour, hand picked by the band and @This_Feeling.
