Blossoms have today announced details of their biggest headline gig to date at Wythenshawe Park, Manchester on 25th August.
The 30,000 capacity gig takes place on the Sunday of the August 2024 bank holiday and sees Blossoms supported by Inhaler, Shed Seven, The K’s, Seb Lowe and Ttrruuces. Tickets for the gig are on sale on Friday 10th November from ticketmaster.co.uk.
Speaking about the show, Blossoms’ Tom Ogden says:
‘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!’
Blossoms recently released their new single “To Do List (After The Breakup)” featuring Findlay and produced by long-term producer James Skelly. The single is inspired by Rupi Kaur’s poem of the same name, taken from her book ‘Milk and Honey’. “To Do List (After The Breakup)” has received great support at press (NME, Rolling Stone UK & DORK) and at radio with BBC Radio 1, including a Future Sounds play with Clara Amfo, and at BBC Radio 2.
“To Do List (After The Breakup)” is the first song to be released on Blossoms new record label ODD SK, in partnership with The Orchard. The new label takes cues from the band’s surnames, as well as their hometown of Stockport.
Blossoms are supporting Inhaler at their 3 Arena show in Dublin on 11th November before they play a small number of US dates that month, including a support slot with New Order in Los Angeles. The band are also supporting Tom Grennan at Finsbury Park in London in August 2024. For more information, visit the band’s website.
Since forming in 2013, Blossoms have enjoyed widespread success and acclaim. Their 2016 debut ‘Blossoms‘ topped the album charts for two consecutive weeks and went on to earn the band BRIT Award and Mercury Prize nominations, while 2018’s ‘Cool Like You‘ charted at Number 4 in the UK album chart, spawning the anthemic singles “I Can’t Stand It“, “There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls)” and “How Long Will This Last?“. Their third studio album, 2020’s ‘Foolish Loving Spaces‘ was the band’s second UK Number 1 album, while their fourth studio LP ‘Ribbon Around The Bomb‘ gave the band their third UK Number 1 album, with the record’s standout tracks “Ode To NYC“, “The Sulking Poet” and “Care For” well established as fan favourites. Blossoms have had five top 5 albums in the UK, including their ‘In Isolation/Live From The Plaza Theatre, Stockport‘ release.
Blossoms’ Wythenshawe Park gig is on sale on Friday 10th November from SEE Tickets & Ticketmaster and the band will be releasing further new music in the coming months.
