Upcoming Events

We are happy to announce that Heather Small will be performing at ULU LIve in April 2018. Small joined her first group, Hot House, while she was still a teenager. She was the studio singer voice of the re-recorded version of UK number 1 single “Ride on Time” from Italo house band Black Box. After a chance meeting with Manchester DJ Mike Pickering, formerly of Quando Quango, Small and her distinctive voice helped to sell over 10 million albums worldwide singing with his group M People. They had considerable success with songs such as “Moving On Up” and “Search for the Hero”.

Friday 4 May 2018

Bad Manners formed in 1976 whilst still at school. Signing to Magnet Records in 1980 the band scraped into the Top 40 with their debut single “Ne-ne-na-na-na-na-nu-nu”, a cover of the 1948 song by Dickie Doo and the Dont’s. The follow up single “Special Brew” went straight into the UK Top 10 at the height of the 2-Tone movement and was the first of many anthemic songs for which the band are known. In 1980 alone the band released two more chart topping singles “Lip Up Fatty” and “Lorraine” along with their debut album “Ska ‘n’ B” and it’s follow up “Loonee Tunes”.


Saturday 12 May 2018

British singer-songwriter and guitarist Robyn Hitchcock & His LA Squires will be performing at ULU Live 12th May 2018. Robyn Hitchcock reached prominence in the late 1970s with The Soft Boys, Hitchcock launched a prolific solo career. In 2017, Hitchcock released his eponymous album Robyn Hitchcock. Working with Brendan Benson as co-producer, the album saw a return to a full band sound after his previous release, with guest appearances from Gillian Welch and Emma Swift.

The Magic Numbers

Thursday 17 May 2018

Comprising of two sets of siblings, Romeo and Michele Stodart and Angela and Sean Gannon, The Magic Numbers have sold over a million albums worldwide across their career and scored a slew of hit singles. The band quickly shot to media attention after selling out London’s Kentish Town Forum solely on the strength of their loyal fanbase prior to the release of their 2005 self-titled debut – an album that would later go on to pick up a Mercury Music Prize nomination and break into the UK Top 10 Charts.

The Christians + Hue & Cry

Sunday 27 May 2018

ULU Live are pleased to announce that The Christians and Hue & Cry will be performing. The Christians celebrate their 30th anniversary as a band, they are re-touring with a full live set.

Superchunk & Oblivians

Tuesday 29 May 2018

The legendary Superchunk bring their new album and more to London in 2018! So much of Superchunk’s music in the band’s nearly three decades together, the songs on ‘What a Time to Be Alive’ meet rage and anxiety head-on with the catharsis and exhilaration of loud punk fire and vulnerable pop energy. Like 2013’s ‘I Hate Music’, which focused on death, loss, and the role of music in an ageing life, the new record brings spirit to the front lines of pain—it’s as defiant as it is despairing, as much a call to arms as a throwing up of hands.

The Beat Starring Dave Wakeling

Saturday 9 June 2018

The Beat were formed in Birmingham, England, in 1978, during a period of high unemployment and social upheaval in the United Kingdom. Their music fuses ska, pop, soul, reggae and punk rock. ULU Live are pleased to announce they will be performing 9th June 2018.
