AFTER the instant success of their first studio album in 16 years, York's Shed Seven are to build on the impact of Instant Pleasures by playing the biggest show of their 27-year career.

Their June 29 gig at the Castlefield Bowl will see York's most triumphant invasion of Manchester since Paul Barnes led rampant York City to a 3-0 League Cup victory over Alex Ferguson's Manchester United on September 20 1995 at Old Trafford.

While mounting their most comprehensive tour in November and December to mark the release of Instant Pleasures, the Sheds took to social media to announce they had confirmed the venue for what they call “a career-defining show”.

In a Facebook post they wrote: “When the band formed back in the early 90s we could have never dreamt that in 2017 we’d be bigger than ever; to be currently out in the UK playing our biggest ever sold out tour to over 60,000 people and celebrating a critically acclaimed top 10 album. And it’s all down to the support of our loyal fanbase... the real foundation of Shed Seven.

“For years we have wanted to put on a career defining show, a show that will go down as a milestone in the band’s history. Manchester Castlefield Bowl, June 29, will be that moment. Our biggest headline show ever, with 8,000 of you there to celebrate with us. We hope that Shed Seven fans will travel from far and wide to join us for this very special night... it might not happen again."
