Texas: 30th Anniversary of Southside played in its entirety plus the hits
For over 30 years, Texas have proved themselves to be one of Scotland’s best ever bands and nothing short of a national treasure south of the border. A new album, the follow up to their acclaimed 2017 release ‘Jump On Board,’ will be unveiled on BMG. To coincide with the release, the band will embark on an Autumn tour including a performance at the Victoria Theatre Halifax on Saturday 19 February 2022.
Last December Texas played a sold out Glasgow show at SWG3, their fastest selling show ever. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of their acclaimed 1989 debut album ‘Southside’, the band played the entire album. After the overwhelming success of that show, Texas have decided to do the same on their forthcoming tour, coupled with a set list compiled of songs both old and new.
Formed in 1986 by the undeniably brilliant Sharleen Spiteri and her partner in crime, Johnny McElhone, they have made consistently great music throughout their stellar career having sold over 40 million records, had 13 top ten UK singles, 3 #1 UK albums and 8 top ten UK albums including their latest ‘Jump On Board’.
Texas has been re-scheduled to Saturday 19 February 2022 (from 21 May 2021 and 6 November 2020).
We're pleased to confirm that your existing tickets will be valid at the rescheduled date and we hope you can join us. If you have chosen to collect your tickets from the Box Office at the time of booking, your tickets will still be available for collection up to the date of the rescheduled show.
Statement from Texas -
"As you’ve probably been expecting, we have to reschedule our Southside UK & Ireland tour dates to February and March 2022.
We really appreciate your patience and know this will come as a disappointment but the safety of our fans and crew is the most important thing for us. We can’t wait to get on the road and see you!"
Victoria Theatre COVID Vaccination and Negative Test Policy
The Council and Theatre staff are excited to finally host full scale events after being closed for over 18 months. We know that many of our customers are eager to return to live entertainment and would like life to go back to ‘normal’. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic means that there is a need to continue to protect ourselves, our audiences, and our community, and make some difficult decisions that will help us to prevent the spread of COVID.
For a safe, considerate, and enjoyable experience for everyone the Council has decided to implement the following from the first full size, main house event on Thursday 26 August 21.
We are asking all ticket holders to provide ONE of the following:
Proof of double vaccination via the NHS App using the COVID Passport OR
Proof of a negative lateral flow test, logged within 24 hours of the event OR
Proof of a negative PCR test, logged within 24 hours of the event
You can provide these via the NHS App, which can be used to log all lateral flow and PCR test results. It also records vaccinations and can be used as proof of vaccination. You can also request a paper copy of your Covid Passport using the NHS App.
Please note: The NHS App is different from the NHS Test and Trace App.
We appreciate that not everyone is able to use apps and will therefore also accept the following as proof:
Text / email confirmations of negative test results logged with the NHS OR
A timestamped photograph of you with your negative lateral flow test OR
A COVID vaccination card showing double vaccination and matching photo identification
To further protect ourselves and each other, we are continuing with the programme of enhanced cleaning and continuing to encourage visitors and staff to wear masks while moving around the venue.
As we are all aware, theatres and live entertainment venues have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic, we were some of the last places to open and are likely to be the first places to close should the need arise for a return of restrictions.
We really want to make sure that we can remain open, to bring back the joy of live entertainment and shared experiences to all, so that we can all feel as ‘normal’ as possible under the circumstances.
We greatly appreciate your support, kindness, and cooperation during this time as we continue to protect ourselves and each other.
If you have any queries about your booking, please email email@example.com and we will respond to your enquiry as soon as possible. We are currently operating on reduced hours in the box office so recommend that you email instead of calling or attending the box office.
Please refer to our FAQs for more information.
The door times for all events are an hour before the show is due to start and we will be checking everyone as they come in. Please arrive as early as possible, as there may be queues.
* Ticket prices include a Theatre Support Fee when booking via our Box Office and online. No other charges are applied.
