[News + Random] This Week The Trend (01 Nov – 08 Nov)

[GIG UPDATE] Travis Added to Clockenflap Lineup!

Remember last year when our team got a chance to talk to Travis in Chicago regarding the possibility of coming to Hong Kong again? Yes, they will be here again!

TRAVIS — the post-Britpop alternative rock band formed in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1990 — has been twice crowned Best British Group at the Brit Awards, and is often credited to having paved the way for popular UK bands such as Coldplay and Keane. The band’s past hit songs include “Why Does It Always Rain On Me?”, “Sing” and “Closer”.

還記得去年我們跟 Travis 在芝加哥見面時談到再次來港演出的可能性?事隔一年,他們終於決定在 Clockenflap 與大家見面了!

Travis — 1990年成立於蘇格蘭格拉斯哥的經典英倫搖滾樂隊 — 曾兩次奪得全英音樂獎項「最佳英國組合」殊榮,被譽為著名英國組合Coldplay及Keane等的啟蒙樂隊。TRAVIS 經典作包括《Why Does It Always Rain On Me?》、《Sing》及《Closer》。
