On Thursday 18th July it's New Order , and on the following night of Friday 19th July it's The Specials, with the two nights of live music leading into Bristol's biggest weekend of the summer, the Bristol Harbour Festival which takes place from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st July.
Tickets will go on sale at 10am on Friday 1st February, priced as below.
Thursday 18th July: New Order (£49.50)
Friday 19th July: The Specials (£46.50)
The outdoor concerts form part of the Colston Hall Presents programme, which sees Bristol’s foremost concert venue programming in the city’s independent venues and unique spaces while Colston Hall undergoes its £48.8 million transformation. This marks the fourth time Colston Hall has brought the music programme to the Harbourside, following Goldie and the Heritage Orchestra in 2015, Outlook Orchestra in 2017 and Jimmy Cliff and Grandmaster Flash in 2018.
Todd Wills, Colston Hall’s Artistic Director, said: “It’s great to be bringing two legendary British bands into Bristol for the biggest weekend of the summer. The Specials and New Order are arguably two of the most iconic bands of their time, so to have them each playing a one-off show in the height of the Bristol summer is going to be absolutely fantastic.”
