More than 300 live performances are planned...

Tom Jones, Mahalia and more are set to join new project Revive Live.

The nationwide tour intends to revive grassroots live music, and will feature more than 300 live performances in all.

A joint venture from the National Lottery and Music Venue Trust, it will feature an unprecedented £1 million donation from the lottery fund.

Amongst the first names confirmed for the Revive Live tour are Sir Tom Jones, Rag'n'Bone Man, Mahalia, and James Arthur, with plenty more announcements to come.

Sir Tom Jones comments...

“Musicians can record in their bedrooms, but they can’t learn to perform in public without a place to play. Without that, there is no way you can communicate directly to people. It’ll be tough to hone your skills and you’ll never have the thrill of feeling their feedback. Without a grassroots music venue, the neighbourhood won’t have a place where people can come together to discover and support a new talent.”

“So support your local pub, club, gym or church or wherever someone has the guts to bring in some entertainment, it makes all the difference both to budding artists and the community. I’m delighted to be able to perform a special show as part of The National Lottery’s Revive Live Tour and to be celebrating the return of live music.”
