8 shows we can’t wait to see at the M&S Bank Arena Liverpool in 2022
2 years ago
It’s going to be a great year at the M&S Bank Arena with loads of fab line-ups to look forward to.
So let’s hope everything is back on track for 2022, because here’s 8 incredible shows we can’t wait to see…
John Bishop has clearly outwitted the daleks to take to the stage in his brand-new world tour, Right Here, Right Now. The scouse comedian who stars as Doctor Who’s latest companion, Dan Lewis, in the cult sci-fi series, is back doing what he does best with his eighth stand-up show which will see him back on the road across the UK, Ireland, America, Canada and Europe.
He’s at the M&S Bank Arena on March 4-5.
Previously rescheduled to April last year, Stormzy will now be at the Arena on Sunday, March 20, with this HITH (Heavy Is The Head) tour. So far Stormzy, who became the first British rapper to headline Glastonbury Festival in 2019, has released four hits from the HITH album with lead single Vossi Bop’, breaking the record for the biggest week one streams for a British Rapper ever, with more than 12.7 million. So this is one that’s definitely worth heading to the waterfront for.
Hot on the heels of Stormzy, Sam Fender arrives in Liverpool on Monday, March 21. The Seventeen and Going Under tour sees the biggest shows yet for Geordie singer Sam and his band, and he describes the album as a coming of age story: “It’s about growing up. It’s a celebration of life after hardship, and it’s a celebration of surviving,” he says.
It might be your last chance to see Leigh-Anne, Jade, and Perrie, for a while after the girls announced a break after 10 years of performing. The Confetti tour, which sees them in Liverpool on April 18 and 26, will be their last before they step down from the stage to ‘recharge’ and work on other projects. Gives fans a whole new meaning to their 2021 hit Heartbreak Anthem…
It could be argued he couldn’t do a worse job than those in power, which may be why Steve Coogan’s alter-ego is back on the road and why ‘with the country riven with discord, beset with disease, and niggled by bickering, Alan is touring the country with a message of hope, a new way of thinking’. Alan Partridge will be ‘not just treading the boards but pounding them’ when he arrives in the city with Stratagem on Wednesday, May 11, and it’s a guaranteed classic – as the man himself might say – “Back of the net!”
The English-born singer-songwriter said she was ‘utterly heartbroken’ when she was forced to postpone UK and European tour dates because of COVID, but it’s all back on and Dua Lipa will be at the Arena on April 29 with her Future Nostalgia tour. Future Nostalgia won Dua Lipa the 2020 Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album with songs like Don’t Start Now and Physical.
It’s not often you get the chance to see a legend perform, and this has got to be one to tick off the bucket list with the phenomenal Motown icon taking over the Arena stage on Saturday, June 18.
There Ain’t No Mountain High Enough to stop us from seeing the Supreme Miss Ross who promises glitz and glamour along with her incredible voice and hits like Chain Reaction, I’m Coming Out, and Stop! In The Name of Love.
Blue featuring Atomic Kitten
The announcement for the Heart & Soul Tour came two decades after Blue released their Number One debut album, All Rise, and so celebrates their 20th anniversary. All four original bandmembers, Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan and Simon Webbe, will play 14 arena shows around the UK, including Liverpool on Saturday, September 17.
And you get two for the price of one, with our own Atomic Kitten joining them. Jenny Frost, Liz McClarnon and Natasha Hamilton will perform some of their biggest hits including Whole Again, The Tide Is High, and Eternal Flame.
