In recent times, Manchester band Courteeners have been subject to countless superlatives from mainstream and underground media sources. The rise of the band has been catastrophic ending with their Old Trafford headline show this May.
Front man Liam Fray has been the driving force of the success and has been on a solo journey this October across the country singing Courteeners classics to adoring fans in, what are now, very intimate venues for the Manchester singer. This Thursday (2nd) Fray makes his return to Leeds; last playing the Arena to a sold out crowd in 2016, the sold out O2 Academy Crowd are sure to be fiercely involved in the show from start to finish.
The run so far has seen Fray take on Liverpool, Hull and Scotland amongst other places but this week the star ends his tour in Leeds and Manchester on the two biggest and most anticipated nights. The shows are already sold out but keep an eye out for tickets being sold on Twickets and by individuals online to be in with a chance of seeing Fray in an intimate venue.
The acoustic set will challenge the ways in which Courteeners fans take on shows. Rather than being explosive, energetic and frantic, fans can expect emotion, raw passion and pure class from the Manc front man. If the set lists so far are anything to go by, expect b-sides, covers and maybe even a bit of Winter Wonderland now the weather has cooled a little!
