Britpop stars sign up for gig at Spa

BRITPOP heroes Ocean Colour Scene are set to rock Scarborough Spa later this year.

Best known for the mid-90s classics The Riverboat Song, The Day We Caught The Train and The Circle, the enduring rockers are heading to the Spa on Tuesday December 13 as part of their Christmas Moseley Shoals Tour.

Ocean Colour Scene have notched up nine albums in their 21-year history, three of which went Top 5 – 1996’s Moseley Shoals, 1997’s Marchin’ Already and 1999’s One From The Modern – and a run of nine successive Top 20 hit singles.

They supported Oasis at their massive Knebworth shows in 1996, and two years later helmed the biggest arena tour of any UK band to date. Recently, they sold out London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The tour, which has involved them playing at sold-out venues across the UK, sees them perform the Moseley Shoals album from start to finish, including some songs that have never been played live.

Tickets go on sale on Friday from the Spa Box Office and online.
