“Classic Rock is the home of high-voltage rock music, so I’m delighted that Future is partnering with Mean Fiddler to put on a series of incredible gigs in these intimate venues. We’ve secured an amazing line-up of performers our readers and fans of real music will love to see. These acts are world beaters who have sealed their reputations over decades and continue to raise the bar with unmissable performances.
