Somerset House 2009 additions: The Enemy, Mars Volta and Bat for Lashes

Posted: 30th April 2009
The Summer Series

Somerset House has added on to its summer series line-up, and a starry one as it usually is.

This year's series will run from July 9th to 18th, opening with diva-in-chief Grace Jones on the 9th, the grown-up Lilly Allen on the 11th, plus three new additions that are The Enemy on July 10th , Texas progressive rockers Mars Volta on the 13th and Bat for Lashes on the 16th.

In between those dates sit Lily Allen on the 11th, new rave duo The Ting Tings on the 14th, Aussie alt-rockers Pendulum on the 15th and topping-it-off (currently) are the erudite rockers of Athlete on the 17th, with another - as-yet-to-be-confirmed act July 18th.

Tickets range from £22.50 to £45.00 (+ booking fee) depending on the act and are on sale now, although Grace Jones, Lilly Allen and The Ting Tings are sold-out already.


Super Furry Animals have been named as the band to close 2009's Summer Series on 18th July - tickets available now.
