Favourite Gig: Ride

The British band Ride, formed in the late 80s by Andy Bell and Mark Gardener, is considered a pioneer of the ‘shoegaze’ sound. Their first stage lasted only until 1996, but they had time to publish such emblematic albums as their debut, ‘Nowhere’ (1990) and their continuation ‘Going blank again’ (1992). After being one of the most anticipated returns of the year when they met again in 2014, in their second stage they have already published a couple of albums, ‘Weather diaries’ (2017) and the most recent ‘This is not a safe place’ ( 2019), which they will review on this return to the city hall.

Favourite Gigs: Morgan

Morgan has become one of the most beloved groups for both the public and critics. After their huge debut, “North”, in 2019 they premiere “Air” and go on tour: more than a hundred concerts throughout the country, in addition to Ireland or UK, including a double of ‘sold outs’ in the Circus Price. A tour that has won, along the way, five Music Awards. Now, the AirTour is over and before the deserved stop to take a breath, Morgan will say goodbye to the stage with twenty-five concerts in emblematic spaces such today in Sala Apolo.
