Earlier this year, Bombay Bicycle Club shocked fans when they announced a 10th Anniversary tour for their debut album I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose. 

 

Even better, Bath Pavilion got their hands on one of just five tour dates. 

 

But with tickets now sold out, it’s time to focus on other gigs. Luckily, there's lots happening - especially for fans of guitar-led sound. From Moles to The Forum, here are six essential gigs coming up in Bath.
