Courteeners have announced two headline outdoor shows in association with Fosters Good Call in Manchester at Castlefield Bowl on 5th and 6th July, which will go on sale on Thursday 28th March.
The shows will follow the bands recent and biggest ever tour of UK and Ireland with 20 sold out shows including a packed out show at London’s Brixton Academy. Each show will host a capacity of 8000 fans per night and tickets are priced at £28.50 and go on sale through Gigs and Tours at 9am this Thursday. Supports across both dates include Miles Kane, Reverend And The Makers, James Skelly & The Intenders, The Strypes, The Heartbreaks and Findlay.
“To spend two nights with our fans under the stars of Manchester will be very special indeed. It’ll be great to finally be bringing ANNA home. With some amazing supports, people are in for a treat… July can’t come quick enough. Let’s pray it doesn’t rain,” Liam Fray said.
Courteeners will release their new single ‘Van Der Graaff’ on 6th May, the follow-up to ‘Lose Control’ which was the first single from their top 10 album ‘ANNA’, and is an epic anthemic track with an addictive guitar riff and soaring vocals. It is sure to be a huge festival track this summer.
You can listen to the track, below:
‘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) and in December, performed new tracks from the album at a sold out homecoming show at the 17,000 capacity Manchester Arena. Courteeners also performed as part of XFM’s Winter Wonderland at O2 Academy Brixton on 17th December.

Sat 6th July – Castlefield Bowl, Manchester – With supports Reverend And The Makers, James Skelly & The Intenders, Findlay
