Blackpool’s very own Boston Manor will be performing a very special live show at their town's most iconic monument - The Blackpool Tower - on 15 October.
The performance will be broadcast online across the globe at three different times - 8pm BST, 9pm EDT & 8pm AEST - to accommodate fans worldwide. Tickets are available now.
Having recently released their highly-charged and critically-acclaimed third album ‘GLUE’, in the midst of lockdown, this online event will be the first chance to connect with Boston Manor’s new music in a live setting, albeit in a slightly different experience to the usual Boston Manor live show.
Says the band’s vocalist Henry Cox:
“Since Boston Manor formed in 2013 we have never played a hometown show. One of the main issues surrounding having a hometown show was Blackpool being a little off the beaten track - we didn’t know how many of our fans would be able to make it to a show there. When lockdown happened & our headline tour got rescheduled (twice) we decided the perfect way to do a livestream event would be to bring the world our first ever hometown headline show, to play our new album live for the first time & to show our fans where we come from & why Blackpool means so much to us. We will be performing a full set at Blackpool Tower on Thursday October 15th. The 500 ft landmark is a symbol of Blackpool, something we’ve been staring up at since we were kids. It’s pretty unbelievable that we’ve been allowed to play here in all honesty. We’ve spent the last few months working on this show & we hope you can join us; it’s something that won’t be repeated.”
Your next chance to see Boston Manor live in the flesh will be at their UK headline tour in March 2021 but for now, grab the popcorn and kick back with what’s sure to be one of the livestreaming highlights of the year.
