Saturday Headliner - Thirty Seconds To Mars


This Is Tomorrow organisers confirm that US mega-stars Thirty Seconds To Mars will head-line the second day of the festival at Spillers Wharf on Saturday 26th May...
Multi-platinum album selling band Thirty Seconds To Mars have today announced they will be heading to Newcastle Upon Tyne to headline the second day of a new major festi-val, This Is Tomorrow, on Saturday May 26th.

The festival date comes at the end of a huge European tour for the band which sees them on the road throughout March, April and May 2018.

Taking place next to Spillers on Newcastle's Quayside on May 25th, 26th and 27th, the festival will open with a headlining performance from Brit Award Winners Catfish and the Bottlemen.

The name, inspired by the vision of the once Newcastle based 'Father of Pop Art' Richard Hamilton and his legendary exhibition, This is Tomorrow is firmly planting its roots in the region and is on course to deliver something truly experimental and forward-thinking this Summer.

Reacting to today's festival announcement, SSD Concerts’ Steve Davis, said: “We are over the moon to bring an international band of this stature to Newcastle.”

“The last time they visited our region was in 2013 and we know fans of Thirty Seconds to Mars will be delighted they'll get the chance to see them on their doorstep once more.

“The whole ethos of This is Tomorrow was to bring bands exactly like this one to the North East and they've an amazing addition to the festival's headlining bill. May can't come quick enough!

“This will be an unmissable event for music fans and more incredible heavyweight acts will be announced soon.”

Thirty Seconds to Mars has sold over 15 million albums worldwide and regularly sell out arenas and stadiums on a global scale. They have received numerous awards and acco-lades throughout their career, including a dozen MTV Awards, a Billboard Music Award and a Guinness World Record for the Longest Running Tour in history.

On July 4th 2017, the band shot a documentary titled ‘A Day in the Life of America’, in-cluding over 90 crews in all 50 states (plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico) capturing American life in a single day, and was received with global acclaim.

Thirty Seconds To Mars have been hailed as one of the most exciting live acts in the world, which was reflected by the single’s live debut earlier this year, a groundbreaking appearance at the MTV VMA awards where the performance was shown via innovative infrared technology, with special guest Travis Scott. Thirty Seconds to Mars performed “Walk on Water”, which is the first single from the band's forthcoming 5th studio album.

In November 2017, the band won in the Best Alternative category for the MTV European Music Awards and followed their hugely successful 2017 with a live European tour and a brand new single.

Thirty Seconds To Mars also released ‘One Track Mind’ in March 2018. The track, taken from their upcoming album ‘America’, featured prominent rap artist A$AP Rocky and showcased the band's progression into an electro-rock sound.

‘America’, the brand new album from Thirty Seconds to Mars is out April 6th via Inter-scope Records.

Tickets for the Saturday May 26th Installment of This is Tomorrow with Thirty Seconds To Mars will go on general sale this Tuesday 3rd April 2017 at 10 am.

Friday Headliner - Catfish and the Bottlemen

Catfish And The Bottlemen have been revealed as the Friday headliner of a new music festival, This is Tomorrow, set to launch on the banks of the River Tyne in May 2018

Taking place next to Spillers on Newcastle's Quayside. Brit Award Winners Catfish And The Bottlemen will play on Friday 25 May, 2018 together with North East indie stalwarts Little Comets and the Newcastle born singer-songwriter sensation and BBC Sound of 2018 artist, Sam Fender as well as innovative alt-pop band Everything Everything.

Catfish And The Bottlemen’s appearance will follow the clamour for tickets that led to sellout shows earlier this year at Finsbury Park, London and Don Valley Bowl, Sheffield on the back of their latest critically acclaimed album, The Ride.

Contributing a sense of unapologetic ambition to British guitar music and preparing fans for a raft of new material to follow their 2016 gold-selling album, venerated frontman and songwriter, Van McCann, along with Newcastle’s own Johnny Bond (lead guitar), Benji Blakeway (bass) and Bob Hall (drums). 

Admitting to being happily of ‘no fixed abode’ due to near-constant touring and recording since 2014 when their now platinum-certified debut albumThe Balcony surfaced, Catfish And The Bottlemen’s eagerly anticipated UK live announcement comes following an uncharacteristic nine-month hiatus since their last shows. The last 18 months has seen the band claim their place as a bonafide arena band at home, adding dates at Wembley Arena to their impressive list of conquered stages, and also fully establish themselves as live favourites in South & North America, Japan and Australia.
