This year marks one whole decade since the Albert Hall reopened to become one of Manchester’s most stunning live music spaces.

To celebrate the occasion, they’ll be welcoming back one of the first acts to have graced their stage, spectacular Scottish post-rockers, Mogwai.

Mogwai performed their Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait as part of Manchester International Festival back in the venue’s opening year, before returning in 2018 for two sold-out shows. Since then, the band have scored their first No.1 album with the stunning As The Love Continues, which also saw them nominated for the Mercury Prize.

Fresh from another jaw-dropping performance at Blue Dot, the group return to Manchester for two special shows this week. Friday’s show is completely sold out, but a handful of tickets remain for Thursday’s show, which was added due to overwhelming demand.

Joining them will be Brainiac, who have reformed 25 years after the tragic death of their singer Timmy Taylor, during which time they gathered cult support from Trent Reznor, The Flaming Lips, and Mogwai themselves.
