Race night for legendary Brummie band.
Ocean Colour Scene are back this summer for an action-packed day out performing at Wolverhampton Racecourse on Friday 31st August after the racing. Why don’t you pop along for a day at the races before dancing into the evening with the fabulous Ocean Colour Scene in concert for an action packed day out? It promises to be a gig not to be missed.
The Birmingham band’s story is already the stuff of legend: a rip-roaring rock’n’folk odyssey set to a backdrop of 21 years of UK pop culture at its very best.
In this 23-year existence, Ocean Colour Scene have notched up nine albums, three of which went Top Five – 1996’s Moseley Shoals, 1997’s Marchin’ Already and 1999’s One From The Modern – and a run of nine successive Top 20 hit singles commencing with 1996’s The Riverboat Song. They supported Oasis at their massive Knebworth shows that same year, and two years later helmed the biggest arena tour of any UK band to date. Their achievements have been nothing short of phenomenal.
From their days as Breton-shirt wearing disciples of the Stone Roses (debut single Sway) to million selling Britpop superstars (Marchin’ Already bumped Oasis’ What the Story from the top spot in 1997) to long-term touring allies with Paul Weller, they have always stood shoulder to shoulder with the greats of modern British rock.
2016 saw Ocean Colour Scene playing huge sell-out shows across the country to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of their classic Moseley Shoals album – including two sold-out, massive hometown shows at Moseley Park in Birmingham; two huge sold out shows in Millennium Square in Leeds, and a massive sell-out Christmas show at the Hydro Arena in Glasgow.
Tickets for the Ocean Colour Scene Wolverhampton Racecourse show also includes a day at the races and are available here
