The 90’s was an iconic era for music, underpinned by the phenomenal success of Britpop which still influences new music today and receives extensive airplay 30 years on.
Now, three special shows have been confirmed to celebrate the Britpop days 30 years on from the coining of the phrase, with a collection of special guests joining forces for a unique live experience.
Performing a selection of their own hits, alongside other Britpop classics, will be Simon Fowler (Ocean Colour Scene), John Power (Cast / The La’s), Mike Chadwick (Levellers), Mark Morriss (The Bluetones), and Saffron (Republica).
And to make things even better, they will be joined by a full live orchestra to put a fresh spin on some of the era’s most famous songs.
The shows will take place at London’s Eventim Apollo on 7th June, Birmingham Symphony Hall on 8th June, and Manchester Bridgewater Hall on 9th June.
Simon Fowler of Ocean Colour Scene said: “Really looking forward to playing some of our hit songs with an orchestra at some of the country’s most beautiful venues and meeting up with faces from the past that we had great fun with.”
Mark Morriss of The Bluetones said: “To have the opportunity to perform the Bluetones songs in this style, in these venues, is not something I ever dreamt would be possible. I absolutely cannot wait for these shows.”
Tickets are available on pre-sale now, and general sale on Friday 20th October at 10am, from Ticketmaster.
