Courteeners’ Liam Plays Iconic Venue
Xfm brings Liam Fray to Salford Lads Club.
Xfm is excited to announce an intimate acoustic gig with Liam Fray of The Courteeners at Salford Lads Club on Wednesday August 18.
Fans of the critically acclaimed four-piece have the chance to get up close and personal with frontman Liam as he performs material from the band’s albums ‘St Jude And Falcon’ at this invite-only event.
Rich in musical history, Salford Lads Club is bound to provide a unique gig experience. Established in 1903, the club was immortalised in the gatefold sleeve of The Smiths’ seminal 1986 album ‘The Queen is Dead’ and also appears in the band’s video for ‘I Started Something I Couldn’t Finish’.
Morrissey contrbuted £20,000 towards the cost of its recent refurbishment and Fray's acooustic performance will be the first gig there since then.
The only way to win tickets to this one-off live event is through Xfm 97.7 FM in Manchester and online at xfm.co.uk. Keep listening to Tim and Clint in Manchester or Dave Berry in London to find out how you can be part of the crowd for this show.
Xfm Breakfast’s Tim Cocker said, “It’s amazing that we can give our listeners the chance to attend such a special show. Salford Lads Club is an iconic part of Manchester and its musical heritage. Liam is a top songwriter and great frontman so it’s going to be an amazing show and anyone lucky enough to be there is in for a treat.”
Liam Fray of The Courteeners said, “I’m quite honoured to be involved in something so unique. Salford Lads Club is a key part of musical history so I can’t wait to be there, with my guitar, to give the fans something special.”
Asked if Morrissey would be keeping an eye on his old hang-out, Liam, whose band supported The Smiths' icon on tour last year, quipped, “I’m sure he’ll be following it, there’ll be an invitation in the post to him somewhere.
