Two of the most influential acts in British music play at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry this weekend.

Echo & the Bunnymen and Buzzcocks perform in the Jaguar Hall on Saturday.

Echo & the Bunnymen will entertain fans with a string of major hits from across their 12 studio albums such as The Killing Moon, The Cutter and Nothing Lasts Forever.

With singer Ian McCulloch and guitarist Will Sergeant still at the helm, the band has gathered a cult following as well as mainstream success which has firmly established them among rock’s leading visionaries.

Buzzcocks are widely regarded as one of the most important bands of the punk movement.

With hits including the memorable Ever Fallen In Love With Someone (You Shouldn’t’ve Fallen In Love With?), which still influences bands today, the MOJO Inspiration Award winners released their ninth album, The Way, last year.

The music begins at 8pm, after Wasps’ match with Exeter Chiefs. Tickets to the rugby and music cost £25, with tickets for the music only costing £15. Call 0844 873 6500 for tickets.
