Livestream Show Rescheduled

Posted on January 10, 2021 at 6:20 AM

As you are likely aware, the Scottish Government was put into lockdown for the whole of January and the UK Government announced similar measures. As such, this will have an impact on travel which means that we will have to re-schedule the livestream event from 25th January to Sunday 7th March 2021.

We know that this is frustrating for everyone however if we are to get back out and into venues playing live music again we all need to follow the guidelines and hopefully beat this virus.

All those who purchased tickets should have received an email outlining their options, similarly, those will purchased add-ons will receive another email about them.

The event on 7th March will no longer primarily be a celebration of Robert Burns and we are currently looking at how we can bring you a unique event

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but hopefully you will be able to stick with us for the rescheduled date. Thanks again for your continued support

See you all soon!!

Skids - A Burns Night Celebration - Livestream

Posted on December 20, 2020 at 2:00 PM



Burns Night is “punked-up” by the Skids as they sing and dance their way through Rabbie's classics in a tribute to Scotlands greatest poet and punk Robert Burns.


From Killiekrankie to Ae Fonde Kiss get ready for a mad evening of the great mans work with a unhealthy splattering of Skids classics plus some Big Country and Armory Show songs thrown in for good measure.


"In 1977, we were singing songs about what we saw as a world in crisis, today that message is more relevant than ever! The songs have a different power when played acoustically - a new energy - triumph, rage, camaraderie, and a positivity that has always been and will always be the motivation of the bands music and words." - Richard Jobson


This livestreamed show is being broadcast to you from the very building that the SKIDS rehearsed in back in their formative years.


A range of stream exclusive merchandise will be available to ticketholders.

- "A mans a man for awe that” - Skids Burns T shirt

- YOUR CHOICE of Lyrics, handwritten, dedicated and signed by Richard

- “Skids Burns Night” Poster (A4 size)

- Soundcheck Meet & Greet

Your Link to the exclusive merchandise will be displayed on your order confirmation screen, and your confirmation email.


AND FINALLY.........


Everyone who buys a ticket will have their name entered into a draw for the chance to record some backing vocals on the next Skids studio album and have their name in the credits.
