PJ Harvey To Play Manchester International Festival On July 7th

We are pleased to announce that Polly will perform as part of the Manchester International Festival which runs from June 29th – July 15th. Currently the only UK date confirmed; Polly will take a break from recording to perform an intimate solo set at the Bridgewater Hall on July 7th.

Tickets go on-sale to the general public on March 30th – however we would like to offer fans an opportunity to try and secure tickets in advance and will be offering priority booking to mailing-list members. Full details will be e-mailed to members on at the end of this week, so be sure to check your in-box as tickets will be limited and this will be operated strictly on a first-come-first-served basis.

The show is part of the Festival’s International Music Series, which over the two weeks, includes the UK premiere performance of Lou Reed’s seminal album Berlin, a one-off performance by hip-hop star Kanye West, and showcases by Bert Jansch with Beth Orton and Bernard Butler.

In addition two of Manchester’s iconic bands will perform at the Ritz – Happy Mondays; and The Fall will play a one-off gig to launch a new book inspired by their lyrics - Perverted by Language. The line-up also includes experimental Glasgow rockers The Blue Nile in their only UK show and first show in seven years; and Cataluñyan innovators Ojos De Brujo. William Orbit will premiere his specially commissioned Orchestral Suite for the BBC Philharmonic and Manchester Chamber Choir. More information on the festival is available at www.manchesterinternationalfestival.com
