About this event

The Skids featuring Richard Jobson, Bruce Watson and Jamie Watson announce a series of ‘Unplugged’ dates in support of their recent acoustic album ‘Peaceful Times’.

The Skids formed in 1977 in their home town of Dunfermline, Scotland by Richard Jobson, Stuart Adamson, Bill Simpson & Tom Kellichan. After releasing an independent single the band were played by John Peel, supported The Clash in concert and then were signed to Virgin Records in 1978. Their first singles were “Sweet Surburbia”, “The Saints are Coming” and “Into the Valley” – the latter reaching the UK Top Ten in early 1979.

Their seminal debut album “Scared to Dance” came out in 1979 which was quickly followed by two chart singles – “Masquerade” and “Working for the Yankee Dollar”. Both singles were taken from the Bill Nelson produced second album “Days in Europa”. The band released two more albums “The Absolute Game” (1980) and “Joy” (1981) before splitting.

The unplugged shows featuring Richard, Bruce and Jamie offer an evening full of their greatest hits wonderfully reworked for an acoustic setting mixed throughout with stories and explanations behind the songs along with many tales from the history of the Skids.
