Yorkshire’s own Shed Seven
have announced another huge gig in the region for 2021.
On 15 May, York’s premier Britpop poster
boys will be headlining a very special show at Doncaster Racecourse. The unique show will invite audiences to enjoy an entire day of racing at one of the UK’s most prestigious arenas, with the added bonus of a full Shed Seven set late into the evening.
“Leading lights of the Britpop Scene”
The Sheds’ rose to fame as one of the leading lights of the Britpop scene. They’re still around, and are one of the nation’s favourite alternative rock bands. Turning heads with the release of their classic debut album ‘Change Giver’ in 1994, the Rick Witter five-piece unfurled a flurry of smash hits that would come to define the period and amassed an impressive fifteen Top 40 singles and four Top 20 albums over the next 5 years.
After an extended hiatus in 2003, the Sheds surprised and delighted fans and critics alike as they returned with their first new studio album for 16 years: Instant Pleasures. Demonstrative of a band back at the top of their game and rippling with ideas once more, Instant Pleasures delivered exactly what it said on the tin. Rightfully rewarded with a Top 10 UK chart position, rave reviews and national radio playlistings, the band are more in-demand than ever.
“Energy in spades”
A hectic 2019 schedule saw them release their Going For Gold
greatest hits on gold-coloured vinyl for the first time. They also thrilled audiences nationwide on their packed-out Shedcember tour, which included a headliner at the Leeds First Direct Arena
. Showing no signs of slowing the pace any time soon, the Sheds now look on to Summer 2021
With anthemic hits spanning three decades and energy in spades, Shed Seven are perfect for a summer show. Get your tickets and expect a mix of Sheds classics including ‘She Left Me On Friday’, ‘Dolphin’ and ‘Disco Down’. And they’re sure to include ‘High Hopes’, ‘Where Have You Been Tonight?’ and choice cuts from latest album Instant Pleasures.
