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 Bowl to watch the headlining Welsh lads ‘perform‘ some new material with a ‘cocktail‘ of crowd pleasing classics and as soon as the gig was underway, the weather made no difference at all!
Clean Cut Kid
Castlefield Bowl is a great venue that boasts an intimate atmosphere. Opening up the night was Clean Cut Kid who ironically have more hair than Chewie and Bigfoot combined. Never the less the the Liverpool band were practically playing to a home crowd who in turn showed their appreciation.
Fresh from a pretty cool Glastonbury performance, Clean Cut Kid recently announced a 10 date UK headline tour including a hometown show at East Village Arts Club inLiverpool on Saturday 29th October. The band is enjoying a fantastic 2016, releasing acclaimed single ‘Pick Me Up’ appearing on the BBC R1 Live Lounge, as well as playing shows up and down the country. One to watch out for and one to go see! If you can understand what Mike (lead singer) is saying with his pretty thick Liverpudlian accent he’s actually very funny! Cracking the jokes, not taking things too seriously, they look like they are thoroughly enjoying every minute at present! Fair play guys. Hope to see you some time in the near future.
