Need A Father's Day Gift Idea? How About...

Written by Andy Ritchie / June 14, 2017

This Sunday, June 18th is Father's Day. But you knew that, right? .... RIGHT?! 

What's that? You completely forgot all about it and now don't have the time to get out and buy him something to show how much you care? Not to worry - we've compiled our picks of the shows we reckon your dad might fancy heading to in the months ahead. Are you sitting comfortably? GOOD! Then let's begin...


BOOK HIM A TICKET TO... Guns N' Roses' Not In This Lifetime World Tour
THEY'LL LOVE IT BECAUSE... It's the first time the gang's been back together since Duff, Axl and Slash's acrimonious split over 20 years ago. And if international reports are anything to go by, the US hard rockers are back to their explosive best.
IT'S A WAY BETTER PRESENT THAN... Socks. Who wants socks, really?
