The Killers kick off their UK tour in Falkirk

Indie-rockers The Killers have announced a UK stadium tour for 2020 , kicking off in Falkirk.

For Falkirk transfers from Edinburgh freephone 0800-6190575 . The band are embarking on the tour in support of new album ‘Imploding The Mirage‘, their sixth studio album and their first since 2017.

Starting on 28 May 2020 in Falkirk, the band will play nine dates, calling into Manchester, Norwich, Southampton, London, Bristol, Coventry, Middlesborough, and Dublin.

They’ll be joined by Blossoms, Sam Fender and Manic Street Preachers, who’ll be opening for the Las Vegas band on select nights.

The Killers are an American indie rock band from Las Vegas consisting of frontman Brandon Flowers, guitarist Dave Keuning, bassist Mark Stoermer and drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. The band have sold over 22 million records worldwide and have had four UK number one albums.

The Killers will be performing  in Falkirk on Thursday 28th May 2020 at the Falkirk Stadium.

The Killers are the latest big name act to hit Falkirk Stadium in the last few years. Rod Stewart , Elton John and Little Mix are just some of the top music acts to appear in Falkirk.

“I wouldn’t call this a concept album,” drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. told NME, “but we’re starting to see the threads of a concept, and we’re having fun with it.

“I don’t wanna say for sure what the concept is, but I’d say this is more fun, a little bit more up and I love that.”

“Brandon and I… have been having fun with the fact that we don’t have our guitar player, we don’t have our bass player with us, so it sounds different.”

“We’ve been in Utah doing it,” said front man Brandon Flowers. “That’s where I fell in love with music for the first time; so it’s interesting to be there again and hear some of that music with the geography matching the sensation.”

“Some of that stuff is starting to resurface and a lot of that had to do with synthesiser music. It’s always been part of our DNA but it’s definitely creeping up.”

The band – who formed in 2001 and have released five consecutive chart-topping albums – played a triumphant headline set at Glastonbury earlier in 2019, which delivered one of the biggest singalongs of the weekend in indie banger, ‘Mr. Brightside.’

“The best thing about The Killers is that everyone knows all the words,” said iNews, “and even when you don’t really know them, you still feel like you do. And so did every one of the tens of thousands of people who packed into the huge space in front of the Pyramid Stage.”

“The force of tens of thousands of voices reverberated across the reaches of the campsite in one of the most high-octane and spine-tingling moments of the festival.”

Mr Brightside, released in 2004, is the longest-charting song in UK history, having appeared in the top 100 for a total of 208 weeks, 42 more than its closest competitor.

They have fully cemented their status as the world’s biggest girl band, with the quartet         asserting dominance in the charts album after album.
They have sold more than 50 million records worldwide, collected more than 17 million Spotify listeners, received more than 3 billion Youtube views, and collated 12 billion streams worldwide. Record sales have seen them notch up a total of four UK No.1 singles, four platinum-selling albums and nine platinum selling singles, surpassing a record previously held by the Spice Girls. Their 2016 album ‘Glory Days’ was the biggest selling album by a female group this millennium in the UK, alongside being named the longest-reigning Top 40 album for a girl group ever.

Edinburgh Airport business district plans

Exciting new plans have been announced for an Edinburgh Airport business district . Airport news from Airport transfers Falkirk , phone 0800-6190575

The Scottish Government has called-in plans for a major mixed-use business-led development near Edinburgh Airport due to concerns over the impact the development would have on transport.

Set for vacant land near the airport’s Hilton Hotel and the main A8 road, the 90-acre International Business Gateway scheme has been in the pipeline for more than a decade.

The £500 million project is being driven by a consortium consisting of Murray EstatesFrogmore PropertyNew Ingliston Limited and Salmon Harvester Properties.

Designed by 7N Architects, it will eventually boast around 122,000 square metres of commercial and business floor space, nearly 400 new homes – 25% of which would be affordable – 1,150 hotel bedrooms and at least 5,000 square feet of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.

Despite gaining planning approval from the City of Edinburgh Council in May, the future of the business hub will now be decided by the Scottish Government.

In their letter setting out why the application has been called in, the Scottish Government said: “The reason for this direction is to allow further consideration of transport impacts of the proposed development, in view of the national importance of the West Edinburgh area.”

David Murray, the managing director at Murray Capital, labelled the decision “deeply disappointing” and said it was putting politics ahead of growth and investment.

Mr Murray said: “The government has made clear its intent to steward the growth of the Scottish economy at a time of very significant downside risk. But the words are not being matched by action in this case, quite the reverse.

“This project would create hundreds of jobs in its development and house 12,000 jobs when completed.

“The politics of the planning process is putting investment, jobs and growth at risk. The danger is the message from the Scottish Government to the world is a negative one at the very point when we need strategic projects like this active and investing in the city and country.”

A decision on another west Edinburgh project by the same developer, the Edinburgh Garden District, is still pending more than three years after it was called-in by government planners.

Mr Murray added: “That project has already been with the Scottish Government for over three years following planning approval by the city council in June 2016. Both are strategically critical projects for the city and the country. I ask ministers to expedite this next process with very significant urgency and hope that they understand that the costs of delay are very real.”

On the Garden District application, the Scottish Government spokesman said: “This is a complex application and ministers are currently giving full and proper consideration to it Every effort is being made to issue the decision as soon as possible.”

Edinburgh Airport’s £75 million terminal opens

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has officially opened Edinburgh Airport’s £75 million terminal expansion, the biggest project in a generation at the airport.

Airport news from Airport transfers Falkirk. Phone 0800-6190575 for bookings.

Part of a wider £200 million investment programme at Scotland’s busiest airport, the expansion enhances the airport’s connectivity options and will support passenger growth to twenty million passengers.

The expansion delivers new gates, new aircraft stands and new international and domestic passenger arrivals halls, as well as new baggage reclaim areas and an extended immigration hall. It also has new retail and food and beverage outlets, including the world’s first BrewDog airport bar.

It’s the start of a larger programme of investment in key terminal and airfield facilities over the next 5 years, with almost £300 million being spent on a new baggage system, more new stands, improved check-in facilities and a new access road.

The First Minister received a tour of the terminal expansion from Gordon Dewar, the airport’s Chief Executive. She also spoke to staff and passengers in the Special Assistance seating area which was designed with the help of users.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “I am delighted to open this terminal expansion, further establishing Edinburgh Airport as a gateway to Scotland from the rest of the UK and internationally. 

“Edinburgh Airport not only supports our business and tourism sectors but employs 700 people directly and 7,000 through partner businesses – I was particularly pleased to meet engineering apprentices who are learning their trade in a fast-paced environment such as aviation.

“This £75 million investment will future-proof the airport for continued growth. As an outward looking nation, it is now more important than ever that we enhance connectivity with our European partners and with the rest of the world.”

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “This is of course an investment in Edinburgh Airport but it’s also an investment in Scotland’s economy and future as we are a facilitator of many things, from business and tourism to culture and education.

“More than 14 million people come through our doors every year and we have invested to accommodate even more as more and more people choose air travel to come to Scotland or to visit the world around us. We want that experience to be as positive as possible and this expansion provides greater options, including the ability to achieve greater connectivity.

“I’m delighted to be able to show the First Minister what we have delivered and to demonstrate the commitment and dedication that our staff and everyone involved in the construction of this expansion. I can think of no better reward than having the First Minister here to celebrate their work.”

Edinburgh Airport is Scotland’s busiest airport, handling more than 14.3 million passengers in 2018 – a record for any Scottish airport. The busiest ever month in Scottish aviation history was recorded at Edinburgh in July 2018 with 1,501,988 people passed through.

The airport flies to more than 150 destinations with more than 30 airlines.

A 2016 independent economic impact study showed we contributed over £1 billion per year to the Scottish economy, supporting 23,000 jobs across Scotland – that’s 2,000 jobs and £90m GVA for every million passengers.

Feeder gained fame for the footstomping hits Buck Rogers and Just the Way I’m Feeling.

The core of the outfit, singer Grant Nicholas and Taka Hirose, have been creating emotion-stuffed anthems since the mid-1990s and are masters of their craft in the live arena.

It was the band’s third LP Echo Park (2001) which brought them to the attention of the masses and they followed it up with a string of popular and critically acclaimed releases, including Comfort in Sound (2002) and Pushing the Senses (2005).

Their most recent album was a well-received best of compilation . 

Feeder are the first big act confirmed for the fledgling festival, but they certainly will not be the last as Polmont’s Ure brothers, David and Andy, are committed to bringing top notch live outdoor music to the area on a scale not seen since Big in Falkirk finished  in 2009. The Coral and the Alabama 3 have also been signed up .

Organiser Andy said: “This is the first year of the festival and we wanted to deliver a strong line up, so securing Feeder is a fantastic achievement. They are known for bringing a brilliant, energetic live set and we think they’ll sound awesome playing in front of Callendar House.

“The full line-up is almost complete and we have something for everyone, so we can’t wait to announce the other acts. We hope local people will support Vibration Festival in its first year.

“It’s in their hands to allow this to grow and become an annual event to be proud of.”

Vibration will be a heady combination of live performance sets, tasty culinary delights and refreshing beverages designed to complement the mighty musical buzz.

Big brother David added: “The focus will be on great live music, but there is a full day of entertainment lined up, from street performers to theatre, with a focus on family and we hope lots of youngsters will be introduced to their first festival experience at Vibration Festival.”

As well as a main stage featuring top turns like Feeder, the festival will also boast a second stage which will host local up and coming bands and allow them to kick out their jams to a massive crowd of music fans.

Thomas Cook considers selling its airline

Thomas Cook is considering selling off its airline to give it greater ‘financial flexibility’ to invest in its own-brand hotels and the digitalisation of its sales channels.

phone 0800-6190575 for Airport transfers Falkirk

The announcement came as it reported an increase in losses for the three months to the end of December from £14 million to £60 million.

Meanwhile revenue was largely unchanged, rising just 1% to £1.66 billion.

Chief executive Peter Fankhauser said a review of the airline was in early stages and would look at ‘all options to enhance value to shareholders and intensify our strategic focus’.

Thomas Cook currently operates a fleet of 103 aircraft, a quarter serving long-haul destinations.

Referring to trading in the first quarter, Fankhauser said: “As expected, the knock-on effect from the prolonged summer heatwave and high prices in the Canaries have impacted customer demand for winter sun.

“Where summer 2018 bookings started very strongly, bookings for summer 2019 reflect some consumer uncertainty, particularly in the UK, and our decision to reduce capacity which will both mitigate risk in our tour operator business and help our airline to consolidate the strong growth achieved last year.”

Thomas Cook said strong customer demand for Turkey and North African destinations had offset weaker demand for Spain.

Highly competitive market conditions in the UK had hit gross margins, it added.
