“When you find that things are getting wild, don’t you want days like these?”
Back to Millennium Square, for the second big gig of the weekend, as Ocean Colour Scene celebrated the 20th anniversary of their ‘Moseley Shoals’ album.
Support: The Bluetones
Venue: The Duchess of York, Leeds
At the time, Supergrass and The Bluetones were making their names on the Britpop scene. Both bands attracted something of a 90s mod revival following. The Bluetones played a great support slot, after which roughly a third of the audience left. Those who stayed did so wisely and saw an excellent (very loud) set from Supergrass, who would excel to stardom over subsequent years. No ticket stub for this gig, as in those days you could still queue and pay a few quid on the door.
