In addition to the nine gigs, the Budweiser Live Project will give consumers the chance to experience music performances in surprising, unexpected ways – including intimate pop-up gigs – giving fans the chance to get closer to the artists involved.

As part of the tour Budweiser has joined forces with Spotify to create a bespoke Budweiser Live Project hub, giving music fans and gig-goers the opportunity to find out more about the tour, access exclusive music content, as well as applying for free tickets.

Isabelle Maratier, senior brand manager for Budweiser commented: “Budweiser is a brand that facilitates epic, unforgettable moments in music. Whether that’s making artists’ dreams come true on stage, or hosting a surprise gig in an epic location, Budweiser’s aim is to be at the heart of it all – making UK music fans’ dreams a reality.

“We wanted to take our involvement with music to the next level this year – and recognise the people whose passion fuels it all; the fans.The British talent we have on board for the Budweiser Live Project is truly incredible, and we can’t wait to see our bus out on the road, bringing these amazing music moments to fans across the country this autumn.”

The Wombats, who released their third album Glitterbug earlier this year, said: “We’re really excited to be playing some intimate shows on the Budweiser tour this October! Look forward to seeing you there.”
