Vampire Weekend are playing at Usher Hall this November
- Event: Vampire Weekend at Usher Hall
- Date: 7th November
- Venue: Usher Hall
What an amazing comeback album Vampire Weekend brought out this year. Their fourth album Father of the Bride (not to be confused with the movie) went straight to number one in America and became their highest charting album here in the UK, reaching number two when it came out in May.
The tour they have chosen to take this year is a peculiar one in that they’re only making four stops in the UK, with Edinburgh being their only Scottish stop on the tour. At the time of writing the gig has already sold out, and with it being a midweek gig, anyone visiting Edinburgh will want to find the best deal on a hotel and get all the information they need for the show to make the most of their time here.
Luckily, Fraser Suites Edinburgh has all the information on Vampire Weekend performing at Usher Hall and how to get there when you stay with us.
Where and when does Vampire Weekend take place?
Vampire Weekend play at Usher Hall on Lothian Road. The show takes place on Thursday 7th November.
How can I get tickets to Vampire Weekend?
At the time of writing the gig is already sold out. If production tickets are released close to the day, you would be best checking the official Vampire Weekend website.
Anything I need to know about the Usher Hall before going?
You’ll spot Usher Hall easily when heading down Lothian Road. Around it are a lot of bars and restaurants that can be jam-packed on gig nights. If you were looking for a small bite and tipple before the gig, Kirk’s Bar opens from 5 pm on Thursdays. With it being right beside the hotel, if you go in before the show for a drink and get one of the window seats, you’re going to spoil yourself with an unbeatable view of New Town.
There may be bag restrictions in place for the evening so double-check the terms and conditions from the site you purchased tickets.
How can I get to Vampire Weekend at Usher Hall from Fraser Suites Edinburgh?
We’re only a 15-minute walk away from the venue. There are two ways to get to Usher Hall, and both involve going around Edinburgh Castle. You can go down and around Prince’s St Gardens, but it’s quicker and much nicer if you walk via Grassmarket.
At that time of year, the view looking up towards the castle from Grassmarket is great and makes the perfect little stop to snap a few pictures.
