Already this year, Richard Ashcroft, The Stone Roses, Liam Gallagher and Noel Gallagher have played in Glasgow. The nineties are back, spurred on by retro fashion trends, requests to DJs in bars on Sauchiehall Street and a Trainspotting sequel, creating the right circumstances for a reunion tour with a difference.

Headlining, Sleeper play their first gig in 19 years. Led by Louise Wener they are remembered for singles like Inbetweener and Sale of the Century.

The live performances will be combined with a design exhibition and other visuals.
A night of 100% pure musical nostalgia at O2 ABC Glasgow on Saturday 12th August.
