MANCHESTER ACADEMY: 25 YEARS IS JUST THE INTRO…

JOIN BUZZCOCKS TO CELEBRATE

MANCHESTER ACADEMY’S 25th ANNIVERSARY

SATURDAY 10th OCTOBER 2015

Manchester Academy is thrilled to unveil the first acts who will be joining Buzzcocks in our celebration of the iconic venue’s 25th Anniversary.

We can now reveal that cult Brit Pop era titans Marion and 90s punk revivalists Goldblade will join the legendary headliners to mark the special occasion on 10th October 2015.

Marion first cut their teeth at the Manchester Academy on an NME tour in January 1995 alongside Veruca Salt having formed only 18 months previous. Led by wild eyed front-man Jaime Harding, Manchester’s stately rock unit would later return to headline Academy 2 a further three times over their career including a triumphant reunion gig at the venue in 2011.

Expressing his delight at their addition to the line up and return to Manchester Academy, vocalist and songwriter for the group Jaime Harding said:
“It feels like Marion have come full circle, playing our first hometown Manchester show with our huge inspiration, old friends the Buzzcocks. Feels like beautiful karma.”

Goldblade aren’t short of a few run-ins with the venue either. Formed out of the ashes of visceral upstarts The Membranes by the band’s anarchic leader John Robb, the band hit the Academy for the first time in April 1997 on their ‘Home Turf’ tour, before returning as friends of the venue for many more shows throughout the noughties.

Now with the Academy back in their sights, the band will support their Mancunian punk brethren Buzzcocks to get the celebrations off with a bang as they rip through tracks from their 11 album strong repertoire.
Taking place on the 10th October 2015, Marion and Goldblade are the first acts announced so far to support the formerly announced bill-toppers Buzzcocks. Additional line up announcements are still to come.
Furthermore, the show will launch a year-long series of unique commemorative gigs planned by the venue in honour of its special anniversary (see line up announcements so far below for details).
Previously we announced that Manchester’s very own Buzzcocks, the band who opened the venue in October 1990 would return to mark the 25th Anniversary of the venue. The band will bring their 2015 The Way Tour for their first gig at the venue in over 6 years.

Look out for a further announcement confirming more  special guests who will be joining Buzzcocks + Marion + Goldblade for this 25th anniversary show.
