British Sea Power will headline Manchester’s Peoples Concert at The Albert Hall on 11th November.
Also on the bill are Field Music, Dutch Uncles, Boxed In, BBC 6 Music DJ Marc Riley plus special guests.
100 Years ago The Albert Hall was a very different venue. In 1917 the space hosted a ‘People’s Concert’ and after recently discovering a programme from the original event we’ve decided to celebrate its anniversary in style with a modern celebration for the people of Manchester.
Headlining back in 1917 was ‘The Famous Range Concert Company, and guests were treated to a troupe of classical singers, plus a ‘humorous entertainer’/ This time we’re doing it in style with indie-rock geniuses British Sea Power topping a bill which also includes the incredible Field Music, Manchester’s iconic Dutch Uncles, Trof favourites Boxed In, and BBC 6 Music tastemaker Marc Riley. There’s also a twist in the mix as one of Manchester’s home-grown DJs is yet to be announced too.
A lot may have changed in Manchester since the first ‘People’s Concert’ but what will never change is the city’s love of music, and as one of the few historic venues still standing we’re proud to be able to celebrate our heritage, so come join the party…
