Blossoms Play Spectacular Intimate Set at the Relaunched Club NME with Ladbrokes LIVE

In a mesmerizing display of musical prowess, Blossoms took center stage at the second installment of the revitalized Club NME, in partnership with Ladbrokes LIVE, this past weekend at Club Academy Manchester. The Stockport quintet, renowned for their electrifying live performances, delivered an unforgettable show in an unusually intimate setting for the band, who are on the brink of headlining a massive concert at Wythenshawe Park this coming August, boasting a capacity of 30,000.

The sold-out event saw Blossoms enchanting the audience with a comprehensive setlist, ranging from their breakthrough hit ‘Charlemagne’ to their most recent release, ‘To Do List (After The Break Up).’ The evening was made even more memorable with an afterparty DJ set by Leigh’s own The Lottery Winners, courtesy of Ladbrokes LIVE, turning the venue into an indie disco haven until the wee hours.

The night kicked off with Radio X’s Sunta Templeton setting the mood, spinning tracks for an eager crowd that had lined up since the late afternoon, demonstrating the unwavering loyalty of the indie music community. It’s worth noting that, similar to the relaunch event last September, tickets were distributed on a complimentary basis, emphasizing the inclusive spirit Club NME has fostered since its inception in 2005.

When Blossoms hit the stage around 10 pm, the atmosphere was electric. Tom Ogden, the band’s frontman, led his bandmates through a high-energy set that had the crowd singing along from the get-go. Ogden shared with NME before the show that they were excited to reintroduce ‘You Pulled A Gun On Me’ to their setlist, a song not performed live in nearly eight years, showcasing the band’s desire to surprise and delight their fans with every performance.

The night concluded with a DJ set from The Lottery Winners, who kept the indie spirit alive, spinning classics from the Courteeners to The Strokes, ensuring the party continued long into the night. This event not only marked a significant moment in the relaunch of Club NME but also solidified Blossoms’ status as one of the UK’s most compelling live acts.

Ladbrokes LIVE, the force behind this resurgence, continues to offer fans unparalleled access to the best in live music, comedy, and sports events, in collaboration with industry heavyweights such as The O2 and AEG Presents. For those looking to experience the magic of live events, registration on is a must.

This exceptional night served as a testament to the enduring appeal of live music and the communal experience it fosters, reminding us that the heart of indie music beats as strong as ever, powered by platforms like Club NME and Ladbrokes LIVE.
