Fans buy 67 Courteeners tickets for wedding reception guests

There's going to be one hell of a party up in Manchester

After The Courteeners announced details of a massive homecoming show in Manchester, two fans bought an impressive 67 tickets – in order to host their wedding reception.

Liam Fray and co are set to headline a huge 50,000-capacity gig at Emirates Old Trafford Lancashire County Cricket Ground next May.

The band will be supported by a handful of local heroes and upcoming acts from the surrounding area, joined by The Charlatans, Blossoms and Cabbage.


Now, soon-to-be newly-weds Abby Clare and Pete Richards have revealed that they’ll be celebrating their nuptials in style – after buying 67 tickets for them and their wedding guests.

The Courteeners release their fifth album, ‘Mapping The Rendezvous’ on Friday 28 October. Read the full NME review and verdict here.
