September saw Slydigs reuniting with The Who for an exhilarating 5 date support Tour across Europe. The boys received an overwhelming response from the German and Italian fans!
The band said - "It was an an honour to be invited back on tour and have a chance to catch up with the The Who and their road crew, The European fans were fantastic and we hope to return again in the near future"
After their final show in Milan with The Who, the boys headed back over to Germany for two blistering headline shows in Cologne & Berlin before finishing up at The Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg.
The band will be joining The Who once again, this time on dates throughout Europe. Head to the Live page to find out more!
Slydigs return home after a triumphant tour of Canada and North America with The Who.
The boys have landed back in the UK after a hugely successful tour with The Who which saw them receive standing ovations night after night on their mammoth tour of Canada and North America. Due to the phenomenal response, the tour has certainly set the foundations for them to return in the near future!

***BIG ANNOUNCEMENT ***
We have some HUGE news for y'all!
We have been invited to support the legendary band The Who on their North America tour this April & May!! Following on from our shows last year with The Who at the London O2 & Hyde Park, we can now officially announce the dates we will be playing in the U.S. and Canada!
To support them in America is a huge honour. Their songs and back catalogue have been a massive part of our education and their music is still a daily inspiration.
We're all extremely excited to get out there and meet all you beautiful people!

The band have announced their second tour with the amazing Vintage Trouble. The boys will be touring throughout June, kicking off on the 22nd in London at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. Tickets are available on presale from 25th February.
Are you sitting comfortably? ...Then I'll begin!
I write from the confines of our transport, reluctantly attempting to wipe away the condensation from the window to reveal the enigmatic beauty of the Spanish midnight sky. We've done in excess of 7,000 miles in travel - and that's just in mainland Europe.
Germany was special. We played 4 shows there in total and every one had its own characteristic. What's great to see is people that have followed us for a while had finally got the chance to see us live, so of course we had to put on a show! Every song was met with raucous applause which is overwhelming taking into consideration that the majority of the crowd have never heard us!
Switzerland has one of the most beautiful venues we've ever played. Milan reminded me of one of our hometown shows. Tight venue, rammed to the rafters with everyone eagerly awaiting entertainment - they got it both barrels from both bands!
Paris for me was a special moment. Not only for the obvious reasons of recent events but to be invited to join Vintage Trouble on stage for 'Not Alright By Me' in honour of recent events, will stay with me for a long time. I will always have an infinite affiliation with Paris - there's something that lingers in the air that my heart and soul is immediately drawn to. It's hard to describe really, there's a longing to belong in Paris!
Antwerp had its own memorable response and I got to catch something new of Vintage Trouble in terms of performance, which I have to say was fucking excellently delivered. They each have their own special way of proving why they’re one of the best live bands around today! Musically, charismatically they are up there with the best - fucking globally! And I don't say that lightly.
The gigs have been simply enlightening and I'm proud to say that we've hit each one with everything we have. We have met some beautiful people and the crowds have accepted us with open arms. We owe a great deal of gratitude to the crew that have helped us so far, the Vintage Trouble gang and last but not least the fans. The new fans and the old fans that care for us, that believe in us and make this whole thing all worthwhile. To you we owe it all!
The next four days will see us play the last four gigs of the tour in Spain which hopefully will finish off our experience on a high. Moreover, it's Pete’s birthday so some celebrations are in order! I'm pretty sure by Bilbao (our last show) we won't want to be returning home but we will be, with smiles on our faces and with the recent past experiences playing over in our minds. Let's not start getting nostalgic too soon, we still have 4 more gigs to smash, and we're just as excited as we were for the very first gig of the tour! Anyway I digress, onwards and upwards - the steam train’s in full flow and there ain't no sign of it slowing down!
I'll let you know how we get on kids!
Peace & Love

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin…
Well where to start? We've endured snow blizzards, ballroom dancing on boats and met some beautiful brethren on our European dates so far supporting Vintage Trouble. We started our ventures in Amsterdam after our UK leg - and may I add the UK dates were fucking colossal so Europe had a lot to live up to.
I currently write from our mode of transport after just returning from our show in Helsinki. Our vessel from Sweden to Helsinki was surreal. I'm talking about a cruise size ship with stages, dance floors, pubs and spas on. The strangest thing was walking out of a restaurant into a commune of elders ballroom dancing in a Scarface type club! Some nonchalant house band playing 'How Much Is That Doggy in the Window’. They didn't bat an eye lid when we walked in!
Our trip prior to the boat of madness was both death-defying and fucking hilarious at the same time. Having finished our show in Malmö, (venue was an old Slaughter house) we had to head to Stockholm for the next night’s gig - but faced with a snow blizzard. We basically ended up stuck on a hill with a jack-knifed lorry sliding towards us. It was looking like we were stuck there for the night, (sheer drops on both sides of the road). My maker was setting the table I tell ya! Thankfully our trusty driver and all time legend Jackie Boy saved us from any mishap. Oh Jackie Boy the roads are calling! He didn't even flinch! There are now five pairs of hand indentations on the back of the seats though!
We finally had to settle for the nearest hotel to us which was 7 hours away from where we needed to be. We concede defeat after that saga and head in for the night, only to be met by what seemed to be some lunatic walking round the hotel. He had his top off with sunglasses on, dressed like some Timmy Mallet impersonator on acid! We're rather desensitised to these unexpected meetings now but every now and again there's always the exception to the rule. Fucking funny night!
My linguistics are coming along though I must say. I know around 2 Dutch words, 3 German words, 2 Swedish words and 1 Finnish word. I'm still getting to grips with the English language so please refrain from raising your eyebrows with sarcasm! Anyway, digression is my suit so I'll leave you with our feelings of exhilaration to be returning to Germany tomorrow after Copenhagen tonight. Fucking love the Germans, they think they can party like the English... Well they have a good go anyway. Ciao for now you crazy cats!
Peace and party pants.
As I sit here writing this we are currently in the tour van leaving the beautiful city of Bristol, heading for the big smoke. Last night was the 8th night of our tour supporting the awe-inspiring vintage trouble and it's been some experience thus far! Each day has been roller coaster of adrenalin and euphoria and it's a feeling that one can easily get addicted to.
Night after night we have been met with packed out venues full of fans ready to welcome us with open arms. This is partly down to Vintage Trouble’s charismatic and cool as fuck front man TY introducing us by casually informing the audience that we're about to tear their faces off. Not many headline acts take the time to do this kind of thing, it's a thoughtful touch which has really made us feel at home with the VT boys and helped their loyal fan base warm to us.
The reaction we have had over the past week or so has been absolutely overwhelming. It feels like people have really embraced the music and took us to their hearts. A lot of the fans we meet after the shows tell us that they have come to check us out for the first time after hearing amazing things about the support act. It's good to know that people are coming away from the gig and spreading the word.
Tonight we play The O2 Forum in London. This feels like an especially big one for us tonight and the anticipation and excitement is already growing. We've got music blasting in the tour van and even the atrocious weather isn't dampening our spirits. We hope to see some old friends and familiar faces at this one.
Get down early and get your dancing shoes on – it’s gonna be a stomper!
See y'all soon.
