Brighton House: (Brighton Festival and The Seagulls) —
Brighton has a lot to be proud about, and seeing our local football club ascend into the Premiership is certainly one of them! Helping to contribute to the ebullient feeling around the city that Brighton Festival always brings. Fans of theatre, music, dancing, food, and classic Brighton quirkiness are all getting stuck in over the month of May. Currated by Kate Tempest this year we might be almost half way through, but there are events going on across the city all the way until June 5th. So come and join in the fun. Check our events calender for details of some shows but for a full programme head on over to the Brighton Festival and the Brighton Fringe Festival websites.

Brighton House: (Jimmy Carr ) —
Jimmy is gathering a selection of his very best jokes along with brand new material for the ultimate comedy show.
A man who has devoted his life to crafting perfect jokes and has left a trail of laughter in his wake, Jimmy Carr’s new tour will distil everything we love to laugh at and be shocked by, into one incredible, unparalleled night of entertainment.
Jimmy Carr has been on the stand-up scene for a decade and a half. In that time he’s performed 9 sell-out tours, playing nearly 2,000 shows to over 2 million people across 4 continents. He’s won the British Comedy Award for ‘Best Live Stand-Up Tour’ and been nominated for the Perrier Award.
Now all that experience is being put to good use – you can see all the greatest material from his extraordinary career in one show – this is the very best of Jimmy Carr.

Brighton House: (Gogol Bordello ) —

Gogol Bordello has spent over a decade electrifying audiences the world over with its internationally acclaimed gypsy-punk sound. A touring force, the band averages 200+ shows each year in locales across the U.S., Europe, S. Africa, Russia, Australia and Japan, and has performed at prominent music festivals such as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Fuji Rock and Glastonbury.
As innovators and leaders of the Gypsy Punk genre, the group’s supercharged music is based on a gypsy two-step rhythm, and is augmented by styles picked up along the way including metal, rap, flamenco, roots reggae, Italian spaghetti, Western twang and dub. Their music and legendary concert performances have earned the band a global following and critical praise, including from former Village Voice Chief Music Critic, Robert Christgau, who called Gogol Bordello “the world’s most visionary band.”
Frontman Eugene Hutz founded Gogol Bordello in New York City in 1999, after leaving Ukraine in the aftermath of Chernobyl. In keeping with his vision of creating an international groove, he recruited musicians of all ages, nationalities and cultures to join the ever-evolving lineup. The band is currently recording the follow up to their last studio album, Pura Vida Conspiracy.

Brighton House: (The Flaming Lips) —

We’re thrilled to welcome the return of The Flaming Lips to Brighton Dome. In January, the band released their 14th studio album, Oczy Mlody. Led by effervescent front man Wayne Coyne, The Flaming Lips are rightly recognised as one of the best live bands in the world.
Melodically, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock, including unusual song and album titles—such as Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles, Free Radicals (A Hallucination of the Christmas Skeleton Pleading with a Suicide Bomber) and Yeah, I Know It’s a Drag… But Wastin’ Pigs Is Still Radical. They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and Wayne Coyne’s signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience. In 2002, Q magazine named The Flaming Lips one of the “50 Bands to See Before You Die”.

Brighton House: (Anastacia) —

Pop legend Anastacia – the mega voice behind massive hits including I’m Outta Love and Left Outside Alone has announced a 2017 UK Tour, climaxing with a performance at Brighton Dome. With over 30 million records sold worldwide, Anastacia is one of the most recognisable voices of our time. Her last album Ultimate Collection reached the UK Top 10 – the sixth in her career – cementing Anastacia’s timeless status, with a voice that will continue to reach many for years to come.
The tour announcement follows a great year for Anastacia, who recently took part in this year’s BBC show Strictly Come Dancing. Whilst on the show, Anastacia announced a partnership with Cancer Research UK and made a personal donation to the charity during her time on the show to help fund more life-saving research into breast cancer research. The 48-year-old US singer, who has fought breast cancer twice, has said that she wants to give back as much as she can to help fund research into the disease.
Anastacia has expressed her excitement on the new tour: ‘I am really looking forward to getting back on the road again. I love performing and can’t wait to see all my fans’ beautiful faces!’
