Ocean Colour Scene Announce Moseley Shoals 20th Anniversary Tour At The Limelight 1, Belfast

UK Britpop legends Ocean Colour Scene have announced a return to Belfast performing their million selling album ‘Moseley Shoals’ in full at The Limelight 1 on Sunday December 04th 2016.

ocsIn the band’s 21 year existence Ocean Colour Scene have notched up nine albums, three of which went into the Top 5 – 1996’s Moseley Shoals, 1997’s Marchin’ Already and 1999’s One From The Modern – and a run of nine successive Top 20 hit singles commencing with 1996’s The Riverboat Song. They supported Oasis at their massive Knebworth shows that same year, and two years later helmed the biggest arena tour of any UK band to date.

Tickets go on sale Friday July 8 at 9am from www.limelightbelfast.com, www.ticketmaster.ie, Katy’s Bar & Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. Northern Ireland customers can call 0844 277 44 55 & Republic of Ireland customers 0818 719 300.

The Ocean Colour Story should already be the stuff of legend, a rip-roaring rock’n’folk odyssey set to a backdrop of 21 years of UK pop culture at its very best. Having just completed a handful of gigs for the release of 21 the Box Set, including selling out London’s Royal Albert Hall, their achievements have truly been phenomenal.

From their days as Breton-shirt wearing disciples of The Stone Roses (debut single “Sway”) to million selling Britpop superstars (“Marchin’ Already” bumped Oasis’ “What the Story” from the top spot in 1997) to long-term touring allies with Paul Weller, their story is inseparable from the greats of modern British rock.

2016 will see Ocean Colour Scene performing The Moseley Shoals Tour where they will perform the album from start to finish, including some songs that have never been played live. Universal will re-issue the Moseley Shoals album in several deluxe formats to coincide.
