8 gigs, 8 cities, 8 days. The UK leg of our Dr. Martens Presents tour has just wrapped up. In a curated a series of performances showcasing fresh talent from across the UK, we played host to the likes of Tom Grennan, Lewis Capaldi, Swim Deep, King Nun, The Ninth Wave, Hex and Young T & Bugsey hosting live intimate shows in our stores.
Check out our highlights below.
Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi kicked off the tour in our Cambridge store with an intimate and stripped back set of his most compelling ballads.
Lewis wears our classic 2976 chelsea boots.
Nottingham saw rapper HEX take things up a notch with a set of hard-hitting, complex beats.
Swim Deep returned to the stage and their hometown of Birmingham bringing an electric set to our packed-out store.
And it wouldn’t be a Docs tour without scoping out some of the best #drmartensstyle we saw along the way…
The next leg of the tour saw us head down to Brighton to bring Tom Grennan to the windows of our Brighton store, for a enthralling, crowd-drawing set.
Tom wears our Willis style.
Balloons and infectious energy, Bad Sounds took to the stage in our Bristol store. Pictured below in our cult-favourites the Church boot.
Glasgow – a city brimming with creative talent. It seemed only right to bring The Ninth Wave to our store with their unique and eclectic sound, drawing in new and old fans alike.
Next up, Newcastle. If the tour hadn’t already reached full volume, King Nun brought their ’70s inpired thrashing sounds to an equally energetic audience.
And the final date of the tour? We brought duo Young T & Bugsey to Leeds with old-school grime inspired, hard-hitting beats to a packed-out crowd.
