After a good few months of letting some of the best bands in the UK choose playlists for their website and the line ups for special one-off shows, Topman CTRL is going on the road! The Topman CTRL Student Tour hits five major cities across the UK to serve up some top live acts including We Have Band, Silver Columns, The Big Pink, Yeasayer, The Futureheads, Archie Bronson Outfit and Everything Everything. Not only that, but they are also joined by Channel4, who will be filming the events for a brand new series and letting five C4 presenters, Nick Grimshaw, Miquita Oliver, Rick Edwards, Matt Edmondson and Alex Zane, curate their own individual nights.
In recognition of five nights of awesome live music, electronic rumors is giving away five (yes! five!) incredibly limited edition T-Shirts designed by one of our favourite UK live acts, We Have Band!!! WHB also happen to be appearing at the Newcastle leg of the tour.
