The critically acclaimed Sea Power have been added to the line-up for Manic Street Preacher’s huge outdoor show at The Embankment in Peterborough on Sunday June 12.
Formerly known as British Sea Power, the diverse six-piece will bring their contemporary, conceptual style of indie and rock to what is set to be an unforgettable day and night of live music.
The Brighton-based Sea Power are firm favourites amongst fans and music peers alike. From David Bowie and Lou Reed to Daniel Radcliffe and Benedict Cumberbatch, Sea Power’s music has won them some remarkable admirers.
The band’s catalogue includes seven studio albums, with the most recent being the UK Album Chart No.4 record, Everything Was Forever. Each LP has received raving reviews across the width and breadth of the music press from NME, Rolling Stone, Q Magazine and many more.

From composing film scores and writing the BAFTA-Award winning soundtrack for the groundbreaking video game, Disco Elysium, to having racehorses and ocean-going yachts named after the band, there seems very few places not to have resonated with Sea Power over their 20-years.
That special Sea Power quality will be radiant when they line up in support of Manic Street Preachers. The band can now add The Embankment to a colourful list of performances at Glastonbury, the Great Wall Of China, and even beside the diplodocus skeleton at London’s Natural History Museum.
The gig is one of three fantastic shows on the Peterborough Embankment starting with Café Mambo Ibiza Classics on Friday June 10 featuring DJs Paul Oakenfold, Roger Sanchez and Todd Terry, followed by Simply Red in concert on Saturday June 11 ending with the Manic Street Preachers and Sea Power rounding off the weekend.
Tickets for the Manic Street Preachers and Sea Power concert are £45 + booking fee and are available from www.lphconcertsandevents.co.uk
