The Skids will be returning to Troon Concert Hall after their sold-out visit as part of WinterStorm weekend in 2022. Richard Jobson will strut his unique stuff as part of the celebration of Scottish artists during The Open Championships week at Troon.

If ever there was a juxtaposition this is it!

Tickets for this will undoubtedly sell out again. There are a limited number of balcony seats available and these will be allocated on purchase from front to side.

Full bar and food service will be available.

The Skids
SOMETHING OLD… The Skids were formed in 1977 in their hometown of Dunfermline, Scotland by Richard Jobson, Stuart Adamson, Bill Simpson & Tom Kellichan. After releasing an independent single the band was played by John Peel, supported The Clash in concert, and then were signed to Virgin Records in 1978. Their first singles were ‘Sweet Surburbia’, ‘The Saints are Coming’ and ‘Into the Valley’ – the latter reaching the UK Top Ten in early 1979.

Their seminal debut album ‘Scared to Dance’; came out in 1979 and was quickly followed by two chart singles – ‘Masquerade’ and ‘Working for the Yankee Dollar’. Both singles were taken from the Bill Nelson (Be Bop Deluxe) produced second album ‘Days in Europa’. The album also featured new member Rusty Egan of Rich Kids & Visage fame after the departure of Tom Kellichan. The band released two more albums ‘The Absolute Game’ (1980) and ‘Joy’ (1981) before splitting. Stuart Adamson went on to have worldwide success with his new band Big Country.

The Skids were at the heart of the punk scene in Scotland and took their music to London where they were signed by Virgin Records. They made 4 albums and had numerous hit singles including Into the Valley, The Saints are Coming, Masquerade and Working for the Yankee Dollar.

After the cover version of The Saints are Coming by U2 and Green Day the remaining band members reformed and played to large audiences all over the UK including iconic London venues such as The Albert Hall and The Roundhouse as well as Barrowlands in Glasgow. Their recently released album Destination Dusseldorf went to no.1 on the vinyl charts.

The most recent Skids lineup includes Richard Jobson, Martin Metcalfe and Fin Wilson (Goodbye Mr Mackenzie), Nick Hernandez and Connor Whyte.

Out of Bounds Festival
Out of Bounds will be a diverse celebration of live music and entertainment coinciding with the world’s greatest golf event returning to the Ayrshire coastal town and the message is to get across that while the Open Championship takes place Troon is indeed “Open for business”. Five nights of live music and entertainment are on offer using Troon Concert Hall as a “festival” hub. The event is being promoted by the events team behind the highly successful WinterStorm Rock Festival held each November and the building will be utilised fully with three separate areas and multiple events across the property throughout the week.
