THE RICOH Arena is continuing its strong streak of securing headline artists and musicians to Coventry with another major concert confirmed.

Brit award-winning Catfish and the Bottlemen have confirmed a performance in the Jaguar Exhibition Hall on Thursday (November 17) as part of their UK tour.

The Welsh rock outfit, who won Best British Breakthrough at the 2016 Brit Awards, have just released their second album and will take to the stage in the venue’s 10,000 capacity indoor venue.

Released in 2014, their debut album ‘The Balcony’ saw Catfish And The Bottlemen sell over 250,000 copies and firmly establish themselves at the forefront of the British alternative rock scene.

The four-piece’s now album, ‘The Ride’, is set to go straight to number one when the album charts are released on Friday.

The exciting announcement comes in the midst of the Ricoh Arena’s most successful month for live music – with MTV Crashes and Jess Glynne already completed and acts including Bruce Springsteen and Rihanna still to take to stage.

Andy Gibb, managing director of the Ricoh Arena, said: “Catfish And The Bottlemen are among the most popular indie rock bands to have found fame in recent years, and this is demonstrated by their recent win at the Brits.

“Their latest album was released just days ago to rave reviews from critics so to announce their upcoming performance at the Ricoh at such an exciting time is really promising.

“We are sure will help us attract fans from far and wide in their thousands.”

Tickets, which cost £20, will go on sale on Friday (June 3) with up to 10,000 fans able to get their hands on the chance to see the indie rockers.
