Piece Hall Summer Gigs

by Steve Crabtree

New dates have been announced for the Piece Hall summer gigs in 2021 and 2022.

Following on from the latest Government announcements on the roadmap out of lockdown, The Piece Hall Trust and Futuresound have worked hard to keep as many acts as possible for 2021, with the vast majority rescheduled for August and September. The acts confirmed include The Kaiser Chiefs, Manic Street Preachers, The Cribs, Richard Hawley and The Specials. Due to the complex nature of artist touring schedules, some of the gigs have been moved, including Nile Rodgers feat CHIC and Doves, to 2022.

“A sense of normality”

And they’ve managed to secure a second date for Nile Rodgers feat CHIC following a sell-out first night. Tickets for the new show will go on general sale at 10am on Friday 12th March, with a 24 hour Piece Hall Trust member pre-sale starting on 11th March. Membership of The Piece Hall Trust can be purchased here.

The Piece Hall Trust hope that the return of live music to the venue will help bring some joy and a sense of normality back to music lovers.

The following dates are now confirmed for the Piece Hall summer gigs:


  • Saturday 28th August – Shed Seven
  • Sunday 29th August – The Specials
  • Friday 3rd September ­– The Cribs
  • Saturday 4th September – Richard Hawley
  • Friday 10th September – Manic Street Preachers
  • Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th September – Kaiser Chiefs


  • Saturday 18th June – Doves

“Thriving and vibrant live music scene”

Visitor safety continues to be the number one priority for The Piece Hall Trust. And the team has been working closely with partners to determine the safest way to reinstate live music events. Essential maintenance and a significant deep clean have been undertaken during the most recent lockdown; and the logistics of the large-scale events are being meticulously planned. With live music playing a huge part in the welfare of individuals and the success of communities, the reintroduction of The Piece Hall summer gigs calendar is as exciting for the local area as it is for music fans.

Nicky Chance Thompson DL is CEO of The Piece Hall Trust. She said “We’re thrilled that we have been able to reschedule our planned Summer 2021 artists to the Autumn in what has been a turbulent year for all of us. By moving the events to the later dates, we hope we’re providing peace of mind for ticket holders. Not just around the certainty of the gigs going ahead, but around individuals’ safety and wellbeing.”

“There is light at the end of the tunnel, and for the first time in a long while we can re-imagine a thriving and vibrant live music scene returning to Halifax once again. Live music events have always been the jewel in the crown of The Piece Hall, and we sincerely look forward to welcoming these world-renowned artists to our venue.”
