MTV Presents is heading to Plymouth Pavilions to bring you the best in live Rock and Indie music. MTV Presents will take place on Thursday 6th June, get tickets now if you want to rock out with us this summer!
Special guests The Vaccine’s will be performing, alongside The Amazons, Pale Waves, and Yungblud!
The Amazons were the most hotly tipped band of 2017 earning themselves a place on MTV’s Ones To Watch list among others. They followed through with their debut album reaching #8 in the official chart. From BBC Radio 1 and 6Music A-lists, to rounding off the campaign with a sold-out tour including London’s Kentish Town Forum, The Amazons are now a rock band poised for greatness in 2019.
From uploading their first songs in 2015 to the sold-out live dates, rampant critical acclaim and rapidly expanding fan community of 2018, Heather Baron-Gracie (vocals), Ciara Doran (drums), Hugo Silvani (guitar) and Charlie Wood (bass) have already scorched an impressive path through pop with singles like My Obsession and There’s A Honey. And that album? Well think of it as being a bit like a playlist, but controversially all the songs actually make sense together. It’s shaping up to be an uncommonly special debut, with new tracks such as Eighteen and One More Time capturing the turbulence and brutality of love in remarkable detail.
Jack Saunders will be hosting MTV Presents!

Combat Sports is the sound of The Vaccines being The Vaccines. Their fourth album is the sound of one of the defining British rock and roll bands of their generation at full throttle, setting aside pop experiments and concentrating on what caused the rabid excitement at their arrival in 2010. Combat Sports is a record of guitars, of brevity, of speed, of breathless excitement. From pure Vaccines rock and roll (Put It on a T-Shirt, I Can’t Quit, Surfing In The Sky) through to powerpop (Out in the Street, which was inspired by Big Star, and Take It Easy, which came from listening to Dwight Tilley and Tom Petty) Combat Sports a record that defiantly reasserts the Vaccines’ case to be one of the great English rock bands of their time.
Since making his full-length debut with 2018’s 21st Century Liability, Yungblud has injected an unruly vitality into the musical landscape, setting his sharp-tongued social commentary to a wildly cathartic, guitar-fueled sound. With his force-of-nature energy and unhinged charisma, the London-based artist otherwise known as Dominic Harrison spent much of 2018 on the road, taking the stage at festivals like Lollapalooza, Life Is Beautiful and Reading and Leeds, and bringing his potent message of anti-conformity to a fast-growing and fired-up audience. “This last year’s just been mad; everything’s coming together in the way I always dreamed it would,” says Harrison. “I feel like I’m building something real: a community of people who feel like they can be themselves, no matter what the world tells them to be.”
