Stockport indie rock band Blossoms have brightened up a gloomy November morning with the announcement of a huge Manchester gig. The band will play at Wythenshawe park on Saturday August 25 2024.
Blossoms have been on the up and up for years now, which each of their albums earning them more deserved praise. 'Ribbon Around The Bomb' was their last album, and it was another fine example of just how good and excitiing they are.
The announcement comes following the success of their most recent single ‘To Do List (After The Breakup) which has all of Blossoms’ usual charm and repartee. The band have a brand new album also set for release next summer, you can pre-order this through the band’s website
Support at the event will come from internationally acclaimed acts including Dublin’s Inhaler and the legendary Shed Seven. Following Inhaler’s breathtaking sold-out gig at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse in May this year, the Dublin quartet, headed up by Elijah Hewson, return to Manchester for what will be another stunning live performance.
Another big return, Shed Seven will play their biggest Manchester date yet celebrating the 30th anniversary of their incredible back catalogue. Other acts joining Blossoms at WythenshawePark include The K’s, Seb Lowe and recent ‘To Do List (After The Breakup) collaborator, Findlay, who will kick things off at Wythenshawe Park with her band TTRRUUCES.
The announcement was made on social media through a video which showed band members singing about Manchester, Stockport and the park. The song was to the tune of Blossoms' hit song 'There's A Reason Why (I never returned Your Calls).
Tom Ogden, lead vocalist of Blossoms, said: "Headlining our biggest show yet at Wythenshawe Park is going to be THE moment of our career so far for us. It makes me think of me and Joe going to watch Oasis and The Stone Roses at Heaton Park back when we were teenagers, and how important these big summer Manchester shows are to people. It made us want to be in a band, affected what we wore and changed our lives forever. To misquote Dorothy, 'Lads, I've a feeling we're not on Oldham Street anymore!'"
