Legendary Manchester artist and City fan, Johnny Marr is to headline Manchester City’s season launch party – City Live.
Taking place on August 14 at Manchester Central, City Live is set to be even bigger, better and bluer than before. Manchester City has once again enlisted the support of lifelong Blue and funny man, Jason Manford.
Commenting on City Live, Johnny Marr said, “Like Manchester, City has always been a Club steeped in music. Going right back to Maine Road, there was always a couple of musicians or bands from across the City in the stands. It’s the same today at the Etihad.
“City fans just know how to have a good time, so to play to a packed Manchester Central, will not only be a great party to mark the start of this season, but also a special moment for me personally.”
Tickets for City Live are available from £15 (Cat 3), £20 (Cat 2) and £25 (Cat 1) online at www.mcfc.co.uk/tickets, by telephone on 0161 444 1894 (option 1, option 1, option 2)* and to personal callers at the Stadium Ticket Office located behind the stage in BT City Square.
