We have more to look forward to than ever – with some big names gracing our stage and bringing with them a night of fantastic music that you wouldn’t want to miss. If you haven’t already bought tickets, here are just a few great gigs coming to us very soon for you to look forward to:
ELLA HENDERSON – WEDNESDAY 19TH OCTOBER
Ella Henderson released her second album, Everything I Didn’t Say, in March, and since then we’ve been eagerly awaiting her 2022 tour. Mind-blowingly, this will be her first tour in seven years – and we just can’t wait any longer to have her here at LBSU!
After beginning her music career at just eighteen years old in a whirlwind of success, Ella’s first song became the fastest selling debut single from any British artist in 2014. Her first album sold Platinum, and in 2015 she was nominated for two Brits and had landmark sell-out tour after supporting artists such as Take That and Rudimental.
So, don’t “Ghost” on this tour, tickets are available now ;)
STATE CHAMPS – TUESDAY 17TH MAY
Pop-punk rockers State Champs will hitting the LBSU stage in May, alongside Heart Attack Man and Between You & Me. The New York-based band are bringing their pure pop-punk anthems to the UK and Europe in their eagerly awaited 2022 tour, following the release of their new album, King of the New Age, which comes out on May 12th.
The band began in 2010, with a “quick-paced and emotive sound that was inspired by bands such as Fall Out Boy and New Found Glory.” After releasing four albums, including their third album Around the World and Back which reached number 30 on the Billboard’s Top 200, their fifth album is expected to be another great hit.

PUP – WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 12TH
After releasing their third album, THE UNRAVELLING OF PUP THE BAND, this infectious Toronto punk band are ready to bring their high energy ode to nihilism and depression to Leeds this October!
