Blink 182, Castlefield Bowl, Manchester

Blink 182 and Castlefield Bowl were an unlikely match thrown together by the tragic events of Monday the 22nd of May at the cities arena. Due to the arenas subsequent closure the stadium sized three piece left fans hanging as to whether there would be a gig in the city for several days causing intense worry, however they would eventually announce there would be a gig and Castlefield Bowl would… Keep Reading

Blossoms come of age with what will become a pivotal moment in the bands career. Tonight’s host have been on a journey, one that over the last few years seen them go from strength to strength, although the journey has been a long on, one that has seen them on a never-ending treadmill of live music.

James & The Slow Readers Club, Castlefield Bowl, Manchester

The Slow Readers Club Join James at Castlefield Bowl for a night of total absorption. Having Played the Castlefield only 3 years ago, it was somewhat a coming home for tonight’s host James. Judging by the buzz that has been emanating from the Manchester music scene over the last few weeks for this gig, even the dark grey skies and the threat of rain are not going to stop the… Keep Reading


Arcade Fire, Castlefield Bowl, Manchester

Arcade Fire Entertain a sell out Gig at Castlefield Bowl It had been six years since the last venture into Manchester, by tonight’s Canadian hosts, Arcade Fire. Taking to the stage 30 minutes earlier than official stage times seemed to catch a few fans out, although by that time the Bowl was full. The band where relaxed and at ease from the opening song, “Everything Goes”. Arcade Fires, Win Butler… Keep Reading


Richard Ashcroft, Castlefield Bowl, Manchester

It seems more and more these days, I find myself walking away from gigs saying the same thing… “that has to be in my top 5 gigs of all time” That said there’s nothing better than going to a gig and seeing the band or artist perform like it’s their last ever show and I think it’s performances like these that make some gigs stand out over others. This was… Keep Reading


Haçienda Classical, Castlefield Bowl, Manchester

A joyous crowd assembles to witness and fully immerse themselves in the melodic reworking of the tracks that became synonymous with Manchester’s pioneering club, The Hacienda. What began as a promising evening of sunshine and beats, became a rain-soaked typical Manchester Summer evening in Castlefield, but alas downpours of near biblical proportions failed to abate the mass Rave that was in full swing on Saturday night for the sold out… Keep Reading

The Last Shadow Puppets & Johnny Marr, Castlefield Bowl, Manchester

How do you make an entrance at a gig in Manchester and know it’s going to work? Well if you take into consideration that most of the audience here are well clued up on Manchester’s musical heritage it shouldn’t be too hard. However I wasn’t quite expecting this. It seems like the Turner/Kane super group has just gained another member. Johnny Marr has just plugged his guitar in as the… Keep Reading


New Order, Castlefield Bowl, Manchester

If you had seen New Order back in the early 80’s you would have seen a very different group. What you got back then was a very raw, near unrehearsed performance and no encores. Exciting times, however they have come a long way since then. What you get now is a stadium worthy, tight band with a back catalogue of songs that spans back to the late 70’s. I get… Keep Reading


Stereophonics, Castlefield Bowl, Manchester

Stereophonics grace Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl with support from the hilarious Clean Cut Kid and Walking On Cars. “What about an outdoor gig in Manchester” someone once suggested. Then, amazingly someone else said – “yeah ok – seems like a good idea” The dark clouds and sodden streets of Manchester are no secret. Whilst things always seem nicer when the sun is shining, it didn’t stop 8,000 people cramming in to Castlefield… Keep Reading
