10th May 2019 | Category: Concerts

Lil Nas X, the artist behind the “Old Town Road” hit is scheduled to make an appearance at Boston Calling festival.

Other artists have been added to this year’s Boston Calling lineup, namely, Scottish electro-pop act Chvrches, “Heartbreak Dream” singer Betty Who, and Brooklyn indie-rockers Bear Hands.

Tickets for this year’s festival can be found here.

The new lineup came about after it was announced that some of the high-profile artists will not participate in the festival, which takes place from May 24-26 at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston, Massachusetts.

Even though the lineup that was originally announced in January stated that Janelle Monae, Sasha Sloan, Black Star and Young Fathers will perform, these artists have exited the lineup.

Boston Calling’s Friday and Saturday dates were both affected by the exits. Monae and Black Star had been scheduled to perform on Friday, while Sloan and Young Fathers were supposed to play the following day. Now, Chvrches and Bear Hands will be the entertaining the visitors on Friday, while Lil Nas X and Betty Who will appear on Saturday. Snakehips the DJ, who is playing on Sunday will also play an arena set on Saturday.

The festival cited “unforeseen circumstances” regarding Black Star’s exit, and a similar explanation was provided for Monae’s exit in early April, with Monae citing “a scheduling conflict.”

Aside from these artists, the three-day festival will feature headliners Twenty One Pilots, Tame Impala and Travis Scott.

The Trotter boys are back, only this time you will see them on stage as Britain’s most popular sitcom has been re-imagined as a musical.

The fans are now given a chance to see the charismatic trio on at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

The show debuted in February and has already made a huge success with plenty of sold-out dates throughout 2019. The plan is for the show to run until September 28, but based on the popularity, the audience is hopeful that it will be extended.

More than 20 years and 60 episodes of the show are compressed into a two-hour musical in which we will see characters at a different crossroads in their lives.

Rodney and Cassandra (Pippa Duffy) are making wedding preparations, Boycie (Jeff Nicholson) and Marlene (Samantha Seager) are trying to conceive, and Del Boy goes to a dating agency looking for a “sort” and ends up with Raquel (Dianne Pilkington).

Jim Sullivan, the son of the show’s late creator John has written the musical along with Paul Whitehouse, who plays Grandad in the show with much of the music written together with the late Chas Hodges of Chas & Dave.

So, if you are interested to see whether the Trotter brothers will be millionaires this time next year, you know where you can find your tickets.
