The Distractions live in 2012

The news that we've been looking forward to announcing for some time:  

The Distractions really will be playing live again for the first time since the mid-1990s.  In a very special Occultation evening, the original Distractions, Mike Finney and Steve Perrin will be on stage, joined by new recruits, as well as label mates, Factory Star and the June Brides.

The venue: 

The Kings Arms, Bloom Street, Salford.  Only a couple of hundred yards from Deansgate in Central Manchester, this is a fine old pub, now run by former Housemartin and Beautiful Southerner, Paul Heaton, with a fabulous venue above.

The date: 

Friday 31st August 2012.  A second date in London on Saturday 1st September is also planned.  Ticket details for both gigs will be announced soon. 

Kings Arms, Bloom Street, Salford. Upstairs venue (1951).
