The Magnet to end music gigs as Liverpool loses another venue

The show is part of a three-date, mini-tour which includes Peace at Birmingham’s Sunflower Lounge and Band of Skulls at Southampton’s The Joiners.

Mark Davyd, CEO of the Music Venue Trust, commented: “We’re thrilled to extend our partnership with Jack Daniel’s with these fantastic Homecoming shows which are a vital part of the nationwide Fightback by grassroots music venues, artists and audiences. Working together we can stop closures, secure a long-term future for venues, and start to improve Britain’s grassroots circuit.”

Tickets for the shows go on sale on Friday, March 2.
