**Skipinnish Celebrates 25 Years with a Landmark Gig at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire**

Skipinnish, one of Scotland's most beloved traditional music bands, are thrilled to announce a milestone performance at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire in London on Saturday, 28th September. This concert marks the band's biggest ever gig outside of Scotland and will be a highlight of their year-long 25th anniversary celebrations.

Following the success of a sold-out show at Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall in January, a highly anticipated appearance at a packed Big Top at Bught Park, Inverness on July 6th, and what will be a full house at Edinburgh Castle on July 12th, Skipinnish is set to captivate the London audience with their enchanting songs, powerful melodies and stirring performance. 

The O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, an iconic jewel in London's crown of live music venues, is renowned for its opulent interiors and unparalleled acoustics, making it the perfect backdrop for Skipinnish's fusion of traditional Scottish music and modern flair. This prestigious venue has hosted a pantheon of musical legends, including David Bowie, Oasis, Adele, and The Rolling Stones, each leaving an indelible mark on its storied stage. Fans can anticipate a night of enchantment, immersed in Skipinnish's hit songs, driving melodies, and a vibrant celebration of Scottish heritage and music. The O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire doesn't just host concerts; it curates unforgettable experiences, promising an evening that will resonate long after the final note has been played.

"We have so many amazing fans in and around London and for those who can't make the journey North to Inverness or Edinburgh, we were really keen to celebrate our 25 years of Skipinnish with them. This will be a magical night!” said the band.

This landmark event not only commemorates Skipinnish's remarkable journey over the past quarter-century but also reinforces the band's deep connection with fans across the UK. It's a testament to their enduring appeal and the universal love for Scottish music.

Tickets for Skipinnish's 25th anniversary gig at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire go on sale soon. Fans are encouraged to secure their tickets early for what promises to be an unforgettable celebration of music, heritage, and the incredible journey of Skipinnish.
