We hate to call pre-festival shows "warm-ups", as it's a bit of a disservice to those that purchase tickets for the one-off concert, but it's fair to say Interpol have this in mind with the announcement of a one-off show in Manchester this July.
The gig, taking place at the Manchester Apollo on Tuesday July 8th, will splice up several European festival appearances for the New York rockers.
The band are scheduled to perform at the Oxegen festival in Ireland on July 11th, followed by the T in the Park Festival on July 12th. Then the band head south for a headline set at the Latitude Festival in Suffolk on 17th July.
Tickets for the Manchester gig go on sale tomorrow at 9am, priced at around £20 from here.
