‘The Bushmills Tour’ is part of the #AnswerTheCall campaign that aims to showcase creators, artists, entrepreneurs from the music industry and beyond to showcase their talents and inspire others to fulfil their true calling.
The Old Bushmills Distillery has been making whiskey, and history for over 400 years, and is one of the first distilleries in the world to make both single malt and blended Irish whiskey. It’s this innovation and willingness to be different that has inspired ‘The Bushmills Tour’, which provides the opportunity for breakthrough acts to play alongside headline bands, offering a stage platform for a new generation of talent.
‘The Bushmills Tour’ will be fronted by established bands returning to their local independent roots in some of the UK’s most iconic music venues. With the Music Venue Trust reporting an estimated 40% of music venues closing in the past 10 years, Bushmills aims to celebrate these iconic venues that remain the lifeblood of the UK music scene.
Full details of each headline performance are as follows:
27th April – Manchester // Deaf Institute, VANT
9th May – London // Bush Hall, We Are Scientists
We Are Scientists will be playing the iconic Bush Hall, a beautifully restored Edwardian dance hall located in Shepherd’s Bush, London, Bush Hall has showcased some of the world’s biggest artists during their rise to success, including; Van Morrison, Kings of Leon, Snow Patrol and Florence and the Machine, to name but a few.
As part of the #AnswerTheCall campaign, Bushmills Irish Whiskey has partnered with Bush Hall in a bid to help fund an ongoing refurbishment programme to maintain the venue, as well as equipment for its future live shows. This will give up and coming artists and talent the chance to make a name for themselves on a stage that has been played by some of the biggest names in the business.
