Summer In The City, the annual series of open air shows in Manchester, returns to the city's Castlefield Bowl in July.

Paolo Nutini will perform at the Bowl on Thursday 2 July, while on Saturday 4 July, The Charlatans will top the bill, with support from Stockport's Blossoms.

On Friday 3 July, the venue will play host to Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott, with support from I Am Kloot and The Leisure Society.

The following week, on Saturday 11 July, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds headlines a day that also features special guests Johnny Marr and Black Rivers. This will be a huge homecoming show for all three acts - Black Rivers is the side project of Andy and Jez Williams of Wilmslow's Doves.

Castlefield bowl in the heart of Manchester City Centre played host to sold out shows from James and Pixies last year and in 2013 saw The Courteeners headline two hugely successful sold out concerts.

Tickets for the 2015 dates go on sale at 9am on Friday, 20 March.
