Blossoms, the acclaimed Stockport-based band, has just unveiled plans for what they're calling the 'biggest' headline show of their career. This monumental event will be a massive homecoming gig at Wythenshawe Park during the upcoming August bank holiday weekend.
Scheduled for Sunday, August 25, this all-day outdoor concert follows the band's sold-out performance at Castlefield Bowl in July as part of the Sounds of the City music series.
Notably, this gig at Wythenshawe Park echoes the success of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, who graced the park with the inaugural gig in August.
Fans eager to secure their spots can gain exclusive access to presale tickets by pre-ordering Blossoms' upcoming release. The presale kicks off on Thursday, November 9, at 10 am, while general sale tickets become available on Friday, November 10, at 10 am through Ticketmaster.
Expressing his excitement, Tom Ogden, the lead vocalist of Blossoms, shared, "Headlining our biggest show yet at Wythenshawe Park is going to be THE moment of our career so far for us." He reflected on the influence of big summer shows in Manchester, citing experiences watching Oasis and The Stone Roses as pivotal moments that inspired their musical journey.
Supporting Blossoms at this monumental event will be Dublin's Inhaler and the iconic Shed Seven, marking their grand return for a celebration of their 30th anniversary. The lineup also includes The K’s, Seb Lowe, and the talented Findlay, whose band TTRRUUCES will kick off the festivities at Wythenshawe Park.
Blossoms, formed in Stockport by school friends, has achieved widespread success with their albums like 'Blossoms,' 'Cool Like You,' 'Foolish Loving Spaces,' and 'Ribbon Around The Bomb.' Their impressive career includes BRIT Award and Mercury Prize nominations.
The announcement of this historic show follows the positive reception of their latest single, 'To Do List (After The Breakup),' inspired by the viral poetry book 'Milk And Honey' by poet Rupi Kaur. The single, featuring Findlay on vocals, has garnered national radio support and is currently making waves across key networks. Radio 1’s Future Sounds premiered the track, and it has earned a spot on Radio X’s Record Of The Week.
Don't miss this chance to be part of Blossoms' record-breaking show at Wythenshawe Park next summer—an event set to leave an indelible mark on their already illustrious career.
