90s stars have joined forces for Britpop Classical shows in 2024.

30 years after the term was coined, a trio of gigs - featuring special guests Simon Fowler of Ocean Colour Scene, John Power of Cast & The La’s, Mike Chadwick of Levellers, Mark Morriss of The Bluetones, and Saffron of Republica - will take place in the UK next year.

The shows, which will see the '90s icons perform their own hits as well as special Britpop covers with a live orchestra, will take place in at London’s Eventim Apollo on 7th June, Birmingham Symphony Hall on 8th June and Manchester Bridgewater Hall on 9th June.

Tickets go on general sale on Friday 20th October at 10am, available from Ticketmaster.

Simon Fowler of Ocean Colour Scene said: “Really looking forward to playing some of our hit songs with an orchestra at some of the country’s most beautiful venue’s and meeting up with faces from the past that we had great fun with”.
