WHAT’S ON – November 2015

James-Morrison_1115James Morrison

Leadmill

Thursday 19th November

£26.50

Aw c’mon, I don’t need to convince you to go to this, the heartfelt voice of James Morrison is soothing for the soul and it’s sure to brighten up your colder than usual November. If you do attend this gig, however, you might have to battle your way past my mum to get closer to the front, she actually squealed down the phone when I told her.

Plug

Saturday 21st November – £10

The Mouse Outfit were part of an almighty line up earlier this year at Queens Social Club and if you missed it here’s your second chance, they so rarely happen in life. A 9 piece band made up of musicians and MCs, these folks certainly know how to bring a wall of noise with their fusion of sound and acclaimed live show. Make sure you get involved.

Sheffield City Hall Ballroom

Saturday November 28th – £18.50

If you’re feeling brave, the front row is the place for you. Known for her out of this world improvisation skills, Nina Conti is one of the best comedians about. With her box of tricks in tow including her famous monkey (not a euphemism) for an evening of chaos and unpredictable mayhem. I’ll be hiding in the back row for fear of having to participate, if you’d care to join me.

The-Bodyguard_1115The Bodyguard

Lyceum

27th October – 7th November – From £27

Having already kicked off in October, the long run is more than necessary for such a colossal show. A classic tale with enough twists, turns, romances and heartbreaks than we can count, who doesn’t know about this show? With Alexandra Burke set to lead for the majority of performances, you could probably stand outstand and still hear her almighty pipes ruling the place. But November is chilly so we do recommend buying tickets.

Alabama 3

Corp

14th November – £20

Postponed from July, Alabama 3 are finally making their way to Corporation for a night of loud music and thrills. We’re sure that some of you have been clutching onto your tickets since the original date, but for those that haven’t, make sure you gear up and head down for an un-missable night. Electronic, blues, rock, country and gospel, five things that shouldn’t work but are brought together by the mighty force that is Alabama 3.

Reverend-and-the-Makers_1115Reverend and the Makers

O2 Academy

14th November – £18

Back with their fifth album (Mirrors), this lot will be hitting up the academy to bring fierce noise and serious showmanship. If you’ve ever stepped foot in Sheffield you’ll know all about the legacy they carry round ‘ere, in fact, if you’ve ever heard of Sheffield you’d probably know that. It’s a big deal. If you’re new to the city, you need to be in attendance to get the gist of a proper Sheffield night’art.

Mumford-and-Sons_1115Mumford and Sons

Motorpoint Arena

Sunday 29th November – From £27.50

Mumford and co are back with their new rock sound, leather jackets and bad boy attitude. Gone are the days of waistcoats and banjos, though I must admit I do miss it a bit. Their new album Wilder Mind is a rocked up rock fest of loud noise and guitar riffs, but it’s absolutely cracking. Bringing some old favourite tunes back along with some of their new works, it’ll be a reet’ night.
