Miles Kane has been revealed as the musical headline act for Manchester City's pre-season launch party, which takes place on August 8.

The singer-songwriter will perform on a bill consisting of musicians and comedians next month when Manchester City kick off the new season by unveiling recent signings Stevan Jovetic, Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo and Fernandinho, along with new manager Manuel Pellegrini, to their fans. Joining Liverpool-born Miles Kane on the bill will be Mancunian comedian Jason Manford.

Commenting on the event, Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany said: "Manchester City and music have always gone hand-in-hand. It’s in the DNA of our fans and the very fabric of the football club. You only need to look around the Etihad Stadium on a match-day to regularly see musicians such as Noel & Liam Gallagher, Johnny Marr, Mike Pickering, Jimi Goodwin and Damon Gough to name but a few."

Manchester City's City Live event takes place on August 8 at Manchester Central. The event will also see City’s annual end-of-season awards, including Player of the Year and Moment of the Season, handed out in anticipation of the new season's start.
