WITH Christmas and New Year over, most people may be suffering with the ‘January Blues’. However, if you take a look at the Citadel’s line-up for this year, you’ll more than likely find something to get you excited.

Take a look at who’s coming to St Helens over the following months...

In February, Echo & The Bunnymen frontman Ian McCulloch will be performing an intimate, acoustic show which will see unique performances of his solo work as well as Bunnymen covers.

St Helens’ funniest, folkiest export will entertain the crowds the following month as The Lancashire Hotpots homecoming gig takes place at the Citadel. Nationwide favourites, the Hotpots will perform tracks including Chippy Tea and He’s Turned Emo.

Liverpudlian indie outfit, Space have returned to the music scene with their funky, Mersey-beats and scouse humour. Famous for tracks such as Female Of The Species and Neighborhood, the rockers will play the Citadel in April 2013.

The following month sees yet another scouse sensation come to St Helens as legendary, singer-songwriter Ian McNabb stops off at the Citadel. Mercury Prize nominated McNabb is set to launch a new album in 2013, making his smaller gigs unmissable.

As the Citadel enters it’s summer season, new wave rock ‘n’ roll veterans The Blockheads visit St Helens as part of their nationwide tour. Since the death of Ian Dury in 2000, the band unexpectedly continued to ‘wow’ audiences throughout the UK.

These are just a selection of the performers who are set to visit the Waterloo Street venue this year. For tickets to any of the nights or to keep up to date with who’s on, visit www.citadel.org.uk .
