GOMEZ are set to play their classic album Bring It On at a special gig at Manchester Academy.

The set on Thursday, September 4 will see the Southport quintet play the Mercury Music Prize winning album on Thursday September in its entirety.

Gomez, which features Tom Gray (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Ian Ball (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Paul Blackburn (bass, guitar), and Olly Peacock (drums) have been playing together for a decade.

They celebrated the tenth anniversary of their first gig in October, 2006.

But their friendships date back even further; Ian and Olly have been friends since they were still in short pants, while the rest of the lads rallied around as the duo progressed through academia.

Drawing on their disparate tastes, which ranged from Nirvana to Woody Guthrie, Motown singles to barbershop quartets, they honed a one–of–a–kind sound that incorporated all their influences around their shared point of reference: A deep, abiding love for creative music of all stripes.

Tickets for the Manchester Academy show are priced £20 and are available now from gigsandtours.com, the 24-hour hotline 0871 2200 260 and 0161 832 1111.
