Blossoms Deliver an Outstanding Performance at Club Academy Manchester for Club NME

Published February 12, 2024

Blossoms, the renowned indie band hailing from Stockport, took to the stage at Club Academy Manchester, delivering a breathtaking performance in the second revival event of Club NME with Ladbrokes LIVE. The February 10 event saw the band, famed for their vibrant indie anthems, play a mix of their beloved tracks dating back to their 2015 hit 'Charlemagne' up to their recent single 'To Do List (After The Break Up)'. Despite their rise to prominence and upcoming headline show at Wythenshawe Park, which can accommodate 30,000 people, Blossoms offered a more personal experience to their fans in this cozy venue.

The concert was brimming with energy as DJ Sunta Templeton from Radio X kick-started the evening, followed by a post-show DJ set from The Lottery Winners who kept the indie spirit alive until the early morning. Fans, who had eagerly lined up since late afternoon, were in for a treat at the sold-out event made possible by Ladbrokes LIVE.

Prior to their performance, Tom Ogden of Blossoms shared his excitement about bringing back 'You Pulled A Gun On Me' to their setlist, a song they hadn't played in nearly eight years. Tracks like 'I Can't Stand It' and 'Honey Sweet' also resonated with the audience, leading to a lively atmosphere throughout the night. As the set concluded with 'There's A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls)' and 'Charlemagne', Ogden reflected on the band's journey from their earlier days performing at Club Academy Manchester.

Joining the tradition of Club NME events that have brought indie music to global audiences since 2005, the night with Blossoms signaled another successful stride in bringing these intimate music experiences back. Fans of the indie genre should keep an eye out for more events like this one, with opportunities to win tickets through Ladbrokes LIVE, the digital entertainment platform that offers access to premier music, comedy, and sports events across the UK.
