More launch gigs at Band on the Wall

Manchester's legendary music venue Band on the Wall, which re-opens in September, has announced more gigs for their month-long launch showcase – Back to our Place.

New artists confirmed include comedy legend Ade Edmondson and his band The Bad Shepherds, Jazzanova – one of Europe's foremost proponents of nu jazz, and international superstar and prominent soukous musician, Kanda Bongo Man. Swati Natekar, a household name in India and singer on Jakatta’s 2000 smash hit ‘American Dream’, will also appear as part of the showcase.

Mike Chadwick, music programmer at Band on the Wall, said: “Having already confirmed great artists like Mica Paris, Julian Joseph and The Unthanks, it is great to see even more seasoned and well known performers from around the world coming to play here in Manchester.”

Band on the Wall reopens on 25 September after a major four year renovation. New facilities include a state-of-the-art sound system and concert grand piano, an education suite from where initiatives with local schools and colleges will be run, audio-visual and sound studios, and a multi-use social space called the Picturehouse.
