Manchester in 12 Songs
Sun 23 July 2017, 10:45 – 12:45 BST
This is an ingenious tour, devised by Ed Glinert, former Mojo magazine production editor and co-author of the Fodor's Rock 'N' Roll Traveler (sic) series, relating the stories of twelve much-loved songs set in Manchester, about Manchester, evocative of Manchester, told in full at the appropriate location.
It’s the sound of the city brought to life on the city’s streets!
Don’t want to give too much away, but here’s one killer: Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back in Town”. A Dublin song? No! A Manchester song. A sort of dedication to a well-known set of local lads. All might be revealed at the Circus Tavern or maybe we'll head off to Ship Canal House to hear about the pre-rock 'n' roll days of one of our reatest local sons.
