Menswear specialists, rock ‘n’ roll champions and football fans scotts today kick-off their Coming Home 4 Christmas campaign by announcing details of three special Xmas Footy Fest shows at Manchester’s Bread Shed. Each event will see a high profile band and a rising new talent get the party started ahead of each of England’s World Cup group games later this month.
The events are:
November 21st, 1pm kick-off: England versus Iran
The Sherlocks hit the Bread Shed for their most intimate Manchester show in years, having recently sold-out the much larger O2 Ritz - a gig which Louder Than War observed, “Their live intensity and keen sense of melody make the Ritz erupt with mayhem – beer is flying and hands flail in the air.” Get down early to catch The Lilacs, the Wigan indie-poppers behind ‘Sally’ and ‘Vicarage Road’.
November 25th, 7pm kick-off: England versus United States
Who better to get us in the mood than The Lightning Seeds with their ultimate England anthem ‘Three Lions’ and other big hits including ‘The Life of Riley’ and ‘Pure’? We’re well past thirty years of hurt, but we’re once again dreaming. Openers The Facades have a similar flair for timeless songwriting and classic indie melodies, all topped by the star attraction that is Alannah Webb’s vocal gift. And on the decks is TV/radio presenter and new music aficionado Louise Schofield.
November 29th, 7pm kick-off: England versus Wales
Just like Euro 2016 it’s time for another England versus Wales showdown - and there’s competition on stage too. First up, representing Wales is Public Order, whose throwback ‘90s sound spans everything from rave to Britpop. And then in the England corner are The K’s, whose urgent indie-rock with a punk edge will take on a more intimate atmosphere as they play a rare acoustic set.
Sounds good, right? So to get your hands on some tickets, hastily check HERE as they’re all likely to quickly sell-out.
And there’s another bonus as all ticket proceeds will be donated to Mind. The mental health charity provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem, and also campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of such issues.
There’s much more to come from scotts’ Coming Home 4 Christmas campaign, with big names from music, football and film all getting involved to bring you the latest designs from scotts’ new Matchday Collection as well as their extensive autumn/winter 2022 catalogue.
