Local act Bipolar Sunshine will also be performing at the show, which takes place on 5 June.

The gig is set to be the biggest of Courteeners' career. Liam Fray told Radio X that the venue has many fond memories for him. "When we had a half day at school, we'd play pitch and putt. It's a beautiful place. I've been on a few dates there, it's a nice place to have a stroll around."

Speaking of the Heaton Park show, Liam added: "It is fairly surreal, but it just felt like the next thing to do, really. There was talk about doing another show at the Castlefield Bowl, but we've already done that… and I didn't want to revisit it because those gigs were really special."

Tickets for Courteeners at Heaton Park are now sold out.
