Courteeners teased the event with a series of cryptic posters that appeared on billboards around Manchester city centre earlier today (8 June). The images read "GOD BLESS THE BAND 25.9.21".

The band previously played a sold-out headline show at the 50,000 capacity venue in May 2017 and their last official shows before lockdown saw them play four dates at Albert Hall, Manchester in support of their 2020 sixth studio album, More. Again. Forever.

Ahead of their return to the grounds, Courteeners will headline Friday night at Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival, playing a huge bill that also includes headliners in Liam Gallagher and The Chemical Brothers.
