Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 9th July 2023

Manchester’s outdoor gig series Sounds of the City is wrapping up, with Two Door Cinema Club set to take to the stage tonight.

The rockers, one of the biggest indie bands of the 2010s, will be performing at the beautiful canal-side venue on Sunday 9 July 2023.

The Northern Irish band Two Door Cinema Club shot to success with their debut album Tourist History in 2010, which included singles Something Good Can Work and Undercover Martyn.

Arguably their best-known song is What You Know, a staple on nightclub dance floors for more than a decade.

They then went on to release three more studio albums, BeaconGameshow, and False Alarm, each reaching the top 10 of the UK albums chart, before dropping their fifth album Keep On Smiling.


So there’ll be plenty for them to work with at Castlefield Bowl tonight.

Here’s all your essential information.


Who’s supporting Two Door Cinema Club?

Indie group Sundara Karma are the main support act for Two Door Cinema Club.

They’ve burst back on to the scene in recent weeks with new single Friends of Mine, with their third studio album, Better Luck Next Time, due for release this autumn.

Welsh indie rockers The Royston Club will be opening up the show, hot off the back of supporting Blossoms.
