The award-winning and internationally renowned Manchester Music Tours - created by Inspiral Carpets' drummer Craig Gill - is being relaunched in November.
The music tours were set up to reflect the popularity of some of Manchester’s most celebrated music exports. The tours – which take place across Greater Manchester – include The Smiths, Oasis, The Stone Roses and Joy Division.
Since 2005, music fans from all over the world have made the pilgrimage to visit dozens of locations that illustrate Manchester’s rich musical heritage and significance – from Salford Lads Club from The Smith’s The Queen is Dead Album to Sifters Records in Burnage, a favourite hunting spot of the Gallagher brothers.
Once again, music fans will have the opportunity to enjoy these bespoke tours on the streets of Manchester and beyond. The relaunch of the next official Manchester Music Tour will coincide with the release of Morrissey’s album ‘Low in High School’, featuring the iconic double-decker ‘Mozbus’.
