This time of year could be fantastic for seeing some of your favourite music acts. With festival season done and dusted, it’s during the autumn months when many bands and artists head out on tour. It was a tricky choice to make but, at The Insurance Emporium, we’ve picked out our five must-see acts this autumn.
Seminal British electronica act The Prodigy are heading out on tour to support their latest album, No Tourists. The group, who founded in Braintree, Essex, initially had a lot of success in the 90s with singles like Firestarter and Breathe. Since then, they have continued to be highly evolutionary and influential on the electronic music scene, with highlights including the Invaders Must Die album in 2009. They’re performing a string of arena dates in November.
It’s 20 years since the release of solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, so the American rapper and soul singer is touring to celebrate this milestone. Lauryn Hill initially came to prominence as a member of Fugees before going on to release the aforementioned solo album, which contained singles Ex-Factor, Everything Is Everything and Doo Wop (That Thing). The 20th anniversary tour for The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is coming to arenas in the UK and Ireland.
Florence and the Machine
This UK indie band are touring in support of their latest album, High as Hope. They’ve come a long way since their participation on BBC Introducing – their first three albums reached number one on the UK albums chart, their Lungs album won a Brit Award for Best British Album and they have been nominated for six Grammy Awards so far. They’re performing at arenas in cities such as Leeds, Glasgow and Cardiff in November.
With their album Port Saint Joe having been released earlier this year, the American country music duo are taking it on the road with them. Brothers T. J. and John Osborne, who are originally from Deale in Maryland, US, are known for infusing blues and rock melodies, baritone vocals and a lyrics rallying for social change into their songs. They’re performing at UK venues in late November and early December.
This quintessential thrash metal band are giving fans one last chance to see them before they call it a day. Slayer was formed by Tom Araya, Kerry King and the late Jeff Hanneman in the early 1980s and has remained a frontrunner on the metal scene since, influencing other bands like Slipknot, System of a Down and Pantera. Slayer’s repertoire includes iconic tracks like Raining Blood and Seasons in the Abyss. Their final tour will include a string of arena dates in the UK and Ireland.
