Not everyone's cup of tea I know....but I used to like them back in the day and there must be some others out there who would like to hear them play some of their old hits.
£25 for a gig, food and drinks seems like a pretty good deal to me....shame I don't live closer :-(
Tickets go on sale 4/8/14.
For anyone not wanting to miss out on tickets, or not wanting the full package(and not bothered by the early entry/VIP Seating)- tickets are on sale NOW at the ridiculously cheap price of £12.50 from Lusty Cove directly or for £13.75 from this site http://www.seetickets.com/Event/ocean-colour-scene-acoustic-sundowner-session/lusty-glaze-beach/793533
PLEASE NOTE... After contacting Lusty Glaze, I can now confirm that Pirate FM has indeed made a mistake on their website and that the gig will in fact be on Sunday 17th August NOT Monday 18th August. They were contacting Pirate FM as they Emailed, to make sure the mistake is rectified so I am sure the info will be correct by the time the tickets go live :)
Been fixed already....that's my good deed for the day done :D
Tickets also available for other gigs- The Feeling, Bellowhead and Fisherman's Friend on different dates and prices....but still half price.
Having sold millions of records and headlined stadiums around the world, Simon and Oscar from Ocean Colour Scene have decided it’s time to take things back to basics. The singer and the drummer from the iconic Britpop band will be revisiting their enviable back catalogue in acoustic form. These intimate shows, which will be travelling the UK and the summer festivals, will see the old anthems – The Riverboat Song, Hundred Mile High City, The Day We Caught The Train – performed the way that Simon originally conceived them: on acoustic guitar.
These shows are the latest chapter in a remarkable career that’s seen OCS rise from Breton shirt-wearing Stone Roses disciples to one of Britpop’s biggest bands (their 1998 arena tour was the biggest by any UK group that year). In their 25 years together, they’ve enjoyed five Top 10 albums, six Top 10 singles and a mantelpiece full of awards.
But behind all the swagger and the style were great songs, with words and melodies that found their way into your head and heart. It’s time to hear these songs again, stripped back but every bit as brilliant.
