Britpop legends Ocean Colour Scene will be performing on Hastings Pier later this year.

The band will take to the stage on Saturday, August 26.

Their performance is part of Day Tripper, a unique one-day open-air event on Hastings Pier curated by Ocean Colour Scene themselves and will see the band perform their seminal 1996 breakthrough album Moseley Shoals in full plus a selection of their greatest hits.

Joining them will be the long-standing Beatles tribute The Bootleg Beatles and Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook’s band Peter Hook And The Light, who will be performing the greatest hits of his illustrious career.

In this 23-year existence, Ocean Colour Scene have notched up nine albums, three of which went Top 5 – 1996’s Moseley Shoals, 1997’s Marchin’ Already and 1999’s One From The Modern – and a run of nine successive Top 20 hit single starting with 1996’s The Riverboat Song.

They supported Oasis at their massive Knebworth shows that same year, and two years later helmed the biggest arena tour of any UK band to date.

Tickets are available from tomorrow (Friday, June 2) from 9am.
