Here are the stage times for Courteeners’ huge Old Trafford show this weekend

Johnny Marr, Blossoms and The Big Moon will support the Manchester band

Courteeners have shared the stage times for their huge Manchester Emirates Old Trafford cricket stadium show this Saturday (September 25).

The gig will wrap up their short recent tour of the UK and will feature support from Johnny Marr, Blossoms and The Big Moon. The show sold out in just 90 minutes.

“50k in hour and half,” Fray wrote on Instagram in response to the sell-out at the time. “Absolutely blown away by you guys. This will be really fucking special. God Bless the fans.”

Following the show, Courteeners will also hit the road for further UK dates in November, dubbed ‘The Whites Of Their Eyes’ tour, to mark 15 years since their first gig.

The band first played live at Manchester Roadhouse in October 2006.

“So in 2006, Taylor Swift arrived on the scene, Gnarls Barkley was ‘Crazy’, Guy Goma accidentally introduced himself to the world… and so did we,” Fray recently said in a press release.

“We played our first gig at Manchester Roadhouse in October, 15 years ago. What a night to remember. I wish we actually could. Anyways, we thought we’d sort some very special shows to mark this momentous occasion so, we give you…The Whites of Their Eyes Tour. You’ll be able to see ours and we’ll be able to see yours. We’ve missed them X.”

Courteeners’ latest album ‘More. Again. Forever.’ was released in 2020. In a four-star review, NME called it the band’s “most focussed and adventurous work to date”. “[Their sixth album] strikes a mature balance,” the review read. “It’s escapist in its sound but humane in its approach to the world. It’s experimental but familiar, and tests what the band are capable of.”
