City Festival Presents: British Sea Power

About

City Festival Presents: British Sea Power

The Cookie & Firebug in association with City Festival presents: British Sea Power plus The Brandy Thieves + Luke Broughton Music.

British Sea Power's music has won them some remarkable admirers – Lou Reed, David Bowie and London's National Maritime Museum. Indeed, the BSP fanbase now includes Doctor Who, Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes. Peter Capaldi is a confirmed BSP fan. Daniel Radcliffe has talked in detail about his plan to get a BSP tattoo (featuring the 2002 T-shirt slogan Bravery Already Exists). Benedict Cumberbatch is also an admirer of the band.

BSP have toured giant American stadiums with old friends The Killers, and have played forests and arenas as specially requested guests of The Flaming Lips, The Strokes and Pulp.

Fifteen years on from their first concert British Sea Power continue to make bold, galvanising, idiosyncratic marks on the world. Race horses and massive ocean-going yachts have been named after the band. London's National Maritime Museum recently opened a new £35m exhibition wing. Visitors are greeted by huge, sculpted quotations from Shakespeare and Coleridge – and a lyric from British Sea Power.

Doors open 6pm
Please note that tickets for this event are now SOLD OUT, but don't worry, there's tickets still available for other City Festival events!
