Courteeners, James, DMA'S, Pale Waves
Courteeners have announced details of their biggest headline show to date next summer. The band will play Manchester’s Heaton Park on Saturday June 15th 2019 with very special guests James plus support from DMAs and Pale Waves.
Courteeners previously played a sold-out headline show to 25,000 people at Heaton Park in June 2015 – next summer’s show doubles the capacity of that original show to 50,000 people. Courteeners’ last hometown show was a sold out headline at Manchester Arena celebrating ten years since the release of their debut album St Jude. The band head out on a previously announced thirteen date autumn tour of the UK supported by Gerry Cinnamon and Zuzu.
Manchester's Courteeners both look and sound as though they've come straight out of another time and place, and yet, somehow, are bang up to date. Think Babyshambles meets The Smiths and you'll be somewhere close to their gritty, electrifying sound. 'NME strongly advises that you do put your life in the hands of this rock 'n' roll band'.

Champions of the Madchester era, and famous for anthems such as Sit Down and She's A Star, James are one of the classic bands of the British music scene. They reformed in 2007 after a five year hiatus and have continued going strong ever since. In fact, James are now better than ever. You won't want to sit down to their anthems, they deserve a standing ovation.

DMA’S (dee-em-ayes) are Johnny Took, Matt Mason and Tommy O’Dell, three friends who came together making nostalgic garage pop in a bedroom in Newtown, Australia.
Having met whilst playing in other bands, DMA’S are three writers, three mates, three frontmen – all with a common sense of purpose and musicality. Writing a few songs together, the band demoed them in Johnny’s bedroom-studio, gaining instant attention - all before putting out an official track or playing a single show.

Manchester natives Pale Waves are the indie pop up-and-comers bringing '80s new wave back. 'With lyrics that play on the melodrama of youth and sonic elements that inspire the impressive, rock-fused poptimism of the ‘80s, they could have soundtracked iconic films like The Breakfast Club'.
