The announcement follows the incredibly well received release of Blossoms’ brand-new single, ‘To Do List (After The Breakup)’, inspired and named after the viral poetry book ‘Milk And Honey’ by Rupi Kaur.Currently receiving widespread national radio support, the single which features Findlay on vocals, has been premiered by Radio 1’s Future Sounds and added to the A List across key networks, including Radio X’s Record Of The Week.
Support at the event will come from internationally acclaimed acts including Dublin’s Inhaler and the legendary Shed Seven. Following Inhaler’s breathtaking sold-out gig at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse in May this year, the Dublin quartet, headed up by Elijah Hewson, return to Manchester for what will be another stunning live performance. Another big return, Shed Seven will play their biggest Manchester date yet celebrating the 30th anniversary of their incredible back catalogue. Other acts joining Blossoms at Wythenshawe Park include The K’s, Seb Lowe and recent ‘To Do List (After The Breakup) collaborator, Findlay, who will kick things off at Wythenshawe Park with her band TTRRUUCES.
Formed in Stockport by school friends Tom Ogden, Joe Donovan, Charlie Salt, Joshua Dewhurst and Myles Kellock, Blossoms have enjoyed widespread success and acclaim throughout their career. Their 2016 debut ‘Blossoms’ topped the album charts for two consecutive weeks and went on to earn the band BRIT Award and Mercury Prize nominations, while 2018’s ‘Cool Like You’ charted at Number 4 in the UK album chart, spawning the anthemic singles ‘I Can’t Stand It’, ‘There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls)’ and ‘How Long Will This Last?’. Their third studio album, 2020’s Foolish Loving Spaces was the band’s second UK Number 1 album, while their fourth studio LP Ribbon Around The Bomb gave the band their third UK Number 1 album.
Summer 2023 saw Blossoms performing shows and festivals across the country including the headline slot at Kendal Calling, their own headline outdoor shows at Castlefield Bowl in Manchester, Millennium Square, Leeds + a surprise epic set at Glastonbury where they were joined by the legendary Rick Astley to perform a set full of their favourite Smiths songs.
Not shy of delivering world-class performances at prestigious outdoor venues, Blossoms will grace Wythenshawe Park this August bank holiday weekend for its second summer concert of this scale.
Tom Ogden, lead vocalist of Blossoms, said: ‘Headlining our biggest show yet at Wythenshawe Park is going to be THE moment of our career so far for us. It makes me think of me and Joe going to watch Oasis and The Stone Roses at Heaton Park back when we were teenagers, and how important these big summer Manchester shows are to people. It made us want to be in a band, affected what we wore and changed our lives forever. To misquote Dorothy, 'Lads, I've a feeling we're not on Oldham Street anymore!'
