Exclusive: The Cribs to play tiny Christmas homecoming shows

Jarman boys will play their three albums in order

The Cribs will play three intimate homecoming shows in the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds, near their hometown of Wakefield.

The gigs, which will occur on December 19, 20 and 21, will see the band play their three albums to date in order, one on each night, with extra songs and b-sides relevant to each album period also featuring.

There will be different specially-invited support bands playing at each gig, which have yet to be announced.


The band are keen to encourage a party atmosphere at the three gigs, and are planning festive events and attractions to take place.

All profits from the gigs will go to cystic fibrosis charities.

See the new issue of NME, out on Wednesday (October 31) for an exclusive interview with The Cribs’ frontman Ryan Jarman, talking about what he’s got planned for the gigs.

Tickets will be on sale from 9am GMT on Friday (November 2).
