An Evening with Simon and Oscar from Ocean Colour Scene will take place at The Baths Hall, Scunthorpe next Wednesday (October 21).
The gig follows on from sold out concerts from the legendary Paul Weller and The Vaccines earlier this year.
2015 is Ocean Colour Scene’s 25th anniversary, and their recent sell-out acoustic tour of the most prestigious concert halls of the UK was not only their most successful for 15 years, but also their best received, with ecstatic audience reactions every night. Simon and Oscar from the band are continuing the theme with a tour of intimate seated venues, the perfect stages for their acoustic performances of all the big hits and anthems, including The Riverboat Song, The Circle, Traveller’s Tune, Hundred Mile High City and The Day We Caught The Train.
These shows are the latest chapter in a remarkable career that’s seen OCS rise from Breton shirt-wearing Stone Roses disciples to one of Britpop’s biggest bands (their 1998 arena tour was the biggest by any UK group that year). In their 25 years together, they’ve enjoyed five Top 10 albums, six Top 10 singles and a mantelpiece full of awards. It’s time to hear these songs again, stripped back but every bit as brilliant.
