Touring with The Bluetones as part of a double bill headliner, each night they rotate who starts and finishes, tonight it's Sleeper's turn to delivery the second half delights of a true britpop fest.

The show is to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album Smart, be it now in it's 26th year.

As the band takes to the stage shouts of "we love you Louise" boom from the audience. Sleeper kick off with one of my absolute favourite songs of theirs, Inbetweener, and follow Smart running order of delicious brit pop tunes.

Following Pyrotechnic they deliver an encore of nine more quality indie bangers, including their outstanding cover of Blondies Atomic, which took me back to the days of dark and dingy Manchester Indie clubs, where it was a dance floor filler.

Sleeper delivered an absolute crowd pleasing evening. It was my first time seeing them live, and hopefully not the last. To keep an eye on upcoming gigs
