BIPOLAR SUNSHINE TO SUPPORT ON ALL DATES
Following the announcement of his September acoustic tour last week, Liam Fray has announced two further shows with a Manchester and Glasgow matinee show and venue upgrade in Liverpool to the O2 Academy. Manchester’s Bipolar Sunshine has been confirmed as support for all dates.
Commencing in Liverpool on 19th September, which has been upgraded from O2 Academy 2 to the O2 Academy, the 8-night tour finishes in Liam’s hometown of Manchester with two shows at The Ritz on 29th September. Tickets went on sale last Friday and further Liverpool tickets and tickets for the Manchester matinee show go on sale this Friday at 9am from www.gigsandtours.com. Tickets for the Glasgow matinee show go on sale this Saturday at 9am.
Courteeners recently played two sold out hometown shows at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl, which saw them play live to 16,000 people over the two nights. Supports came from Miles Kane, The Strypes and James Skelly & The Intenders amongst others and Liam Fray followed the second night with a sold out acoustic performance at Manchester Academy 2. The band also just performed a second headline slot on the Radio1 stage at T in the Park to a huge crowd of fans which can be watched here – http://bbc.in/18iwGZa.
Courteeners released new single ‘Van Der Graaff’ last month, the follow-up to ‘Lose Control’ which was the first single from their third top 10 album. ‘ANNA’ followed a two year break since Courteeners last album ‘Falcon’, which charted at #6 and was the follow-up to the bands #4 debut album ‘St. Jude’. The band recorded and produced ‘ANNA’ in Manchester at 80 Hertz Studios with producer Joe Cross (Hurts).
