This show was rescheduled from 27th February 2021 (originally 29th August 2020 at O2 Institute).
After 19 years away, Britpop band Sleeper announced their return in 2017. Fronted by singer-turned-novelist Louise Wener, the band had eight UK top 40 singles between '93-'97 including the breakthrough hit 'Inbetweener', accompanied by the classic supermarket promo video starring Dale Winton, and two top 10 singles with 'Sale Of The Century' and 'Nice Guy Eddie'. They also covered Blondie's 'Atomic' for the original Trainspotting film. As T2 hit cinema screens in 2017, Louise thought 'what do I do now?' and decided to reform the band.

Mark Morriss and the boys continue to go from strength to strength more than twenty years on. They appeared just as the Britpop boom was waning - which helped in getting their debut album 'Expecting To Fly' to the top slot in the UK charts. Musically, they endorse a tight but lithe sound, with a nod towards psychedelia, that falls somewhere between The Stone Roses, classic pop and a little touch of Oasis swagger.
