Back on May 1, English pop-punk/rock band Boston Manor released Glue, its third full-length album, via Pure Noise Records. The record marked a new stylistic approach from the group, which incorporated some electronic flourishes into its songs.

The end result was a collection of urgent anthems that defied genre classification and found Boston Manor delivering the soundtrack to what has turned out to be one of the most challenging years any of us have ever seen.

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns rendered live music (as it was previously known) impossible in 2020, so Boston Manor was unable to properly tour to promote the record — but on Oct. 15, the band will stage a special live stream concert from Blackpool Tower, an iconic landmark of the band’s hometown in Blackpool, Lancashire, England.

The stream was announced on Monday, and included this statement from vocalist Henry Cox:

“Since Boston Manor formed in 2013 we have never played a hometown show. One of the main issues surrounding having a hometown show was Blackpool being a little off the beaten track – we didn’t know how many of our fans would be able to make it to a show there. When lockdown happened & our headline tour got rescheduled (twice) we decided the perfect way to do a livestream event would be to bring the world our first ever hometown headline show, to play our new album live for the first time & to show our fans where we come from & why Blackpool means so much to us. We will be performing a full set at Blackpool Tower in the iconic Tower Ballroom on Thursday October 15th. The 500 ft landmark is a symbol of Blackpool, something we’ve been staring up at since we were kids, & the ballroom itself is world famous. It’s pretty unbelievable that we’ve been allowed to play here in all honesty. We’ve spent the last few months working on this show & we hope you can join us; it’s something that won’t be repeated.”
