Boston Manor have announced they will perform a special hometown livestreamed show from Blackpool Tower on 15th October 2020.
The stream will be broadcasted globally at three different times; 8pm BST, 9pm EDT and 8pm AEST. Earlier this year the quintet released their third album GLUE – due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic postponing touring plans, this will be the first chance for fans to hear some of the album tracks in a live setting. Tickets and exclusive event merchandise are on sale now; you can get yours HERE.
Vocalist Henry Cox says: “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.”
He continues, “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.”
Boston Manor will be heading out on tour in March 2021 in support of GLUE, tickets are on-sale HERE.
