This March 2012, as one of the four events to kick-start their 30th anniversary celebrations G-Shock will launch the G-Shock Sessions Tour. After the great success of the G-Shock East Sessions in London, the concept will head North to The Old Library at The Custard Factory in Birmingham on the 22nd and Moho in Manchester on the 29th. G-Shock will partner with new stockists Autograph and Flannels for a night of music from headline acts DJ Steve Sutherland, Sway and R.I.O to name a selection.
“We are looking forward to taking the G-SHOCK sessions tour to Manchester with some of the hottest local and national music talent. Flannels are a fantastic partner and we are excited to be working with one of the coolest boutiques in the North.” Sarah Salter, Senior Marketing Manager, Casio
“The G-shock sessions are a unique way of engaging people. It has been fantastic for Flannels to work in association with Casio G-Shock on its first session to be held in Manchester.” Amra Sariya, Marketing Manager, Flannels
The G-Shock East Sessions kicked off in 2010 with some of the finest acts from the UK music scene performing at the Brick Lane store, it has since become synonymous with upcoming talent. The Sessions has grown and developed massively since its inception and has led to the introduction of the UK tour. Each event the musical genre has changed slightly, whilst still retaining its quality and in keeping with the G-Shock ethos of toughness.
