All the roads that you have to walk to see Candlelight: A Tribute To Oasis may be winding, and all the lights that lead you there could be a little blinding, but it’ll be worth the trip. There are many things that we would like to say about this captivating concert, and, luckily in this case, we do know how. Ok, enough with the shameless lyrics, this enchanting event will be sure to light up your evening, listening to a unique twist on the chart-topping music of Oasis in the stunning surrounds of either Manchester Cathedral or Hallé St Peter’s, depending on your chosen date. This is a must for any fan of the epic British rock band who fancy hearing their hits like they’ve never heard them before.
The concert will take place on multiple dates in two iconic Manchester venues. The first date, June 10, will unfold in Hallé St Peter’s, a historic Grade II-listed deconsecrated church found in the heart of Ancoats. The striking venue has roots that stretch all the way back in 1858, and ensures a memorable setting to unwind as talented violinist Matt Glossop and a band perform iconic songs such as Champagne Supernova, Don’t Look Back In Anger, She’s Electric, Live Forever, Little By Little and, of course, Wonderwall. Sit back and bask in the ambience, as flickering candlelight dances across the high ceilings and ornate features, mingling with the moonlight shining though stained glass windows. It is sure to be a night to remember.
On the evening of July 22 and August 11, the sounds of Oasis will be floating from the doors of Manchester Cathedral. The centuries-old church is a city staple and – with a dash of glowing candlelight and the breathtaking performances of professional musicians – will promise a spellbinding night out. Behind the cathedral’s impressive gothic facade is an equally striking interior to enjoy. Look out for the 16th-century carvings on the underside of seats depicting stags and hunters, gaze up at angel sculptures playing medieval instruments and admire the beautifully ornate wooden detailing and gilded features – all while mouthing along the words to your favourite Oasis songs as the familiar melodies fill the expansive space.
Whether you’re on a romantic date or are treating a fellow Oasis fan to a unique experience, this candlelight concert will make for an unforgettable evening. Step inside these visually striking venues and little by little the world will slip away, leaving you with nothing but the beloved music of the immensely popular rock band and the unbeatable views of historic architecture, illuminated by glowing candlelight. Make sure you grab your tickets now to ensure you don’t miss out.
