Boston Manor Announce The Details Of A Livestream Gig From Blackpool Tower

Boston Manor have announced the details of a livestream show next month which will be performed from Blackpool Tower.

This will be the band’s debut hometown show.

Henry Cox (Vocals) says:

“Since Boston Manor formed in 2013 we have never played a hometown show. One of the main issues surrounding having a hometown show was Blackpool being a little off the beaten track – we didn’t know how many of our fans would be able to make it to a show there.

When lockdown happened & our headline tour got rescheduled (twice) we decided the perfect way to do a livestream event would be to bring the world our first ever hometown headline show, to play our new album live for the first time & to show our fans where we come from & why Blackpool means so much to us.

We will be performing a full set at Blackpool Tower on Thursday October 15th. The 500 ft landmark is a symbol of Blackpool, something we’ve been staring up at since we were kids. It’s pretty unbelievable that we’ve been allowed to play here in all honesty. We’ve spent the last few months working on this show & we hope you can join us; it’s something that won’t be repeated.”

So that’s taking place from October 15th 2020. 8PM BST.

Boston Manor To Host Virtual Art Show

Boston Manor have announced the details of an upcoming virtual art show, ‘Poetry & Soil’, which is based around their latest record, ‘GLUE’.

The show will compromise of artwork by Benjamin Liever, who created the ‘GLUE’ cover art, Polygon – who worked on the music video for ‘Liquid’, Production Company Big Giant’s Character work and storyboarding for the animated video of ‘Plasticine Dreams’ and images of the band’s US tour photographer Danny DeRusso.

A short documentary on the creation of the record to watch as well.

The band explain:

“We had planned initially to do this art show as a live event in London set over a weekend prior to the album release.

Due to Covid 19 this was not possible; instead we decided to recreate the show online. The show also features a 20 minute documentary “A Short Film About GLUE”.

The film documents the year the band spent making the record. This show will be completely free but available for a limited time.”

Check out the following link for more information.

The band are also encouraging fans to send in their own art to be included in the exhibition. Any submissions, both band related and not, can be sent to Submissions@FY1.co.
