No Half Measures half-term tour to stop off at London's ULU

No Half Measures

Story by Jack Foley

AN INDIE treasure chest of five of the hottest bands from the UK and US will play the No Half Measures Tour during the October half-term holiday.

The tour takes in nine dates in total and will feature The Holloways, Underground Heroes, Haunts, Regards and Bear Hands. It’s presented by Goldenvoice in association with the Relentless energy drink.

Although Goldenvoice is a major player in the music world they, together with Relentless, will be looking after every aspect of the bands’ touring life, from travel and accommodation to generally making sure they’re fed and watered.

There are also plans to help the ticket buying public with a reduction of fees and the potential to wipe them out completely for future tours.

The curent tour will see the five bands hitting a number of key UK cities during the October half term holiday, with early starts to cater for the younger crowds it seeks to draw.
